56th Intl. Frohburger Dreieckrennen 2018

Post by Andy » 2 years ago

I'm back home and the first few photos are done.
It was another great weekend in the southeast with meeting old mates and making new in the paddock.

Outstanding performances were Davey Todd's victory in the second, already wet, open superbike race as well as Julian Trummers victory in the 2nd supersport race. We had a couple fallers due to the increasingly bad weather on Sunday and I hope Nadieh Schoots, Nico Müller and Shaun Anderson make a speedy recovery. On Saturday, I witnessed Sebastian Frotschers accident at the chicane but thankfully he limped away. The final IRRC Superbike race fell victim to the bad conditions out there.
Unfortunately, I haven't got result sheets so far but I'll add them as soon as they are available.

PS. Given the shit weather everywhere last weekend, I hope our @Jacob stood halfway dry at the DLC 6h in Oschersleben

Well, both the supersport/stk600/moto2 as well as the superbike/stk1000/open grids suffered from the bad weather on Sunday because quite a lot pilots opted for the IRRC races only. No miracle, in the championship there is money to grab even if you won't get rich while the organizers races are for a cup and the laurels merely. I know of one instance even, who pulled out of all four superbike races because he feared he'd destroy the bike, which wouldn't be unlikely in these conditions. This, and the fact, that he needed to be at the BeNeCups season final at Assen this weekend in order to be eligible for financial awards. With the potential for desaster at Frohburg, it was a smart even if hurtful move, I think
