Blog | Simon fast in Le Mans but frustrated

Hi everyone,

Last week we had the first tests of the Red Bull Rookies Cup.

Just a week before the tests I took part in the first race of the French Championship in Le Mans. I managed to take pole position with a 2.6 second lead and a lap time close to the GP riders. Unfortunately, in Race 1 I got knocked out in the first corner. Race 2 was in the rain and I finished third.

After a great first race weekend I felt really confident and excited for the first tests in Aragon. But it actually didn't go well for me at all. During the three days of testing I couldn't find a good feeling with the bike, it was really hard for me.

I am now working hard to be more competitive in the first race. And above all I am more motivated than ever to improve! 

See you soon,

Simon
