Saturday was my first ever race in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup. We had all the day free before the race because we only had the race. So I watched The MotoGP and also the other classes. One hour before the race I started to prepare myself with a little warm up and then I put on the suit. When I was sitting on my chair in the tent, I tried to cool myself because it was really hot.
When it was time to go to the Pit Lane, I was very concentrated and also nervous. I was also very happy that the first race is about to start. In the Pit Lane I just sat and waited that we can go out for the sighting lap. I was P.20 on the grid. On the grid I sat on my bike and I concentrated.
The lights turned off and I had a great start. I overtook some riders in the first corner. In the third corner one rider overtook me and I had to brake and I went back to P.20. I was fighting hard in a group of five riders. We overtook us a lot. Every corner we fought hard but fair. In the end I crossed the finish line on P.15. I had a big gap to the riders behind me. I was really happy because I improved myself, my lap time and I reached my first point. It is really nice.
Tomorrow is the second race. I will do my best again and I will try to improve myself. I will let you know tomorrow evening again how the second race was.
See you soon,
