Blog | Robert a first race on rain tyres

Hello everyone!

This weekend I had a wild card at the WSBK weekend here at Assen. I took part in a Moriwaki Cup race where I became champion last year.

It rained a lot during the weekend so we had a wet race and qualifying. This is the first year in which the Moriwaki Cup uses full rain tires. Before we had intermediates. Because of that this was the first time for me racing with real rain tires.

I started the race from eighth position and managed to finish fifth just behind the number two with almost the fastest race lap.

I'm happy with the result and I've learned a lot about racing with rain tires. I'm looking forward to the first race in Jerez next week.

All the best,

Robert Schotman
