The first racing weekend of the Suzuki GSX-R Cup takes place at the Lausitzring in Germany. The weather on Friday was mediocre but dry. On Saturday the drivers benefit from a cloudless sky and warmer temeratures.
The MAGURA Factory Team with rider Danny Märtz is in second place after the two qualifying runs. In spite of some technical difficulties during the free practice Danny managed to drive almost ideal lap times. Only Kovacs Balint was two hundreths faster and took the pole.
“After solving some technical difficulties and making some fine adjustments we were very close to our targeted lap times. The conditions are great and we have an almost perfect starting position. We are very happy about how the season begins”, says Danny Märtz.
The first race today starts at 4:20pm. The second race takes place tomorrow at 10:35am.
