MotoGP: Rins Will Try To Race At Sachsenring

RoadRacing World - Wed, 2022-06-15 17:19

RINS RETURNS AS SUZUKI SQUARES UP TO SACHSENRING

After a short break of 10 days, Team Suzuki Ecstar return to the track to tackle the German Grand Prix at Sachsenring, and the squad are pleased to announce that, after undergoing medical checks Alex Rins has been provisionally cleared by his doctor to ride, but further examinations will be made at the circuit.

Last time out at the Catalan GP, following a terrifying crash which took him out of the race, Rins was diagnosed with a fracture to his pyramidal (triquetral) bone and ankle trauma. He began a programme of electromagnetic therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, and he also used a support to hold his wrist in place. Today, Wednesday June 15th and after the latest medical check with Doctor Xavier Mir in Barcelona, Rins has decided to travel to Sachsenring. Dr. Mir reported: “Alex Rins came to visit me on Wednesday morning before travelling to Germany to evaluate the shape of his wrist, we carried out some tests and it seems that the fracture is doing fine, but it’s not healed yet. It hasn’t moved and is settling down. Alex wants to try to ride, but maybe he will need some painkillers and physiotherapy during these days.”

Tomorrow (Thursday) Rins will need to pass the last official checks with MotoGP Medical Director Dr. Angel Charte, and the medical CEO of Sachsenring circuit – they will make the final decision to declare him fit to race or not.

Meanwhile, Joan Mir executed a fantastic comeback in Catalunya, determinedly climbing through the pack to finish fourth despite starting 17th on the grid. The Mallorcan has a decent record at the German track, so he will be looking to finally stand on the rostrum after several fourth place finishes this season.

Racing in the region of Chemnitz has been going on since the 1920s and Sachsenring circuit, in one form or another, has been hosting Grand Prix races since 1998. This tight and twisty track is therefore a classic on the calendar, and despite being one of the slowest of the season it still provides plenty of thrills. Hugh Anderson was the first Suzuki rider to ever win in Sachsenring, in August 1963.

Alex Rins:

“During this last week I have been working very hard to try to rehabilitate my wrist as much as possible. Following advice from the medical experts I have been sticking to a programme of recovery, and I’ve been trying to gain mobility and reduce the pain. I hope to arrive in good condition in Germany, and on Thursday I will have the final medical examinations with the MotoGP doctors at the circuit so they can tell me if I am fit to ride or not…and if I am then I’ll go for it!”

Joan Mir:

“Sachsenring is a really fun track to ride – it’s slow and tight, but it suits our bike quite well. It’s always a challenge, but I have had some good results here in the past and I’m hopeful for an enjoyable Sunday. The test we had after the Catalan GP gave me a confidence boost and I’m really keen to put some of what we learned into play and see how it can help us moving into these next races.”

Livio Suppo – Team Manager:

“We arrive in Germany after a very useful Monday test in Catalunya where we learned a lot and found some improvements with Joan. We’re hoping to put some of them into action this weekend. Joan arrives here very motivated, and we’re so happy that Alex is going to try to rejoin us here. He will have to see the doctors tomorrow, and we hope they will declare him fit to race. Hopefully we’ll have both riders on track on Sunday and that’s really important for us.”

Jones Wins Royal Enfield BTR Race At Laconia Short Track

RoadRacing World - Wed, 2022-06-15 16:20

BUILD. TRAIN. RACE. Flat Track Lights Up Laconia

Royal Enfield BTR takes on tough and rugged Laconia Short Track at New Hampshire Motor Speedway

Milwaukee, WI – Royal Enfield Build. Train. Race. (BTR) Flat Track program rolled on at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, New Hampshire, where the ladies took on their toughest race to date. The rough and rutted Laconia Short Track was the biggest challenger for eventual winner Jaycee Jones, who had to conquer the technical track surface before she could best her rivals. Makenna Hiatt and Zaria Martens joined Jones on the overall podium.

The second full-grid race of the season was short a few riders, namely round-one winner Jillian Deschenes and Nean Kiskela, who unfortunately tested positive for Covid and were forced to stay home. Of the remaining 13 BTR women, nine would qualify within 120% of the top qualifying time, set by Jaycee Jones, and line up for the BTR main event at Laconia.

Zaria Martens grabbed the holeshot, the 18-year-old battling Jones for the early lead but at the green flag it was Jones already in control of the race, with Martens breathing down her neck. The 81 of Makenna Hiatt was a surprise front-runner, as the 22-year-old pulled up on Martens in the fight for the runner-up position on the second lap. Martens had a scary moment when the rear of her INT650 kicked sideways and nearly pitched her off, but the teenager was able to gather it back up and maintain control. From there, however, Martens backed it down and Hiatt secured second place, moving up to pressure Jones for the lead. In the end, Jones took the victory by a mere half second over Hiatt, who was the breakthrough performer of the day.

Martens was left to fend off a late charge from Stephanie Pietz for the final podium position. In a near photo-finish, Martens was able to maintain the point by 0.078 seconds, leaving Pietz to settle for fourth. Lanakila MacNaughton rounded out the top-five followed by Alex Bumpus McDonald, Malary Lee, Anna Serena and Erin Ferris.

“The Build and Train aspects of the BTR program were once again major factors today,” said Breeann Poland, Marketing and Communications Lead – Royal Enfield Americas. “Dialing in suspension setup was the key to unlocking speed here at Laconia. The BTR ladies really put their heads down during practice and qualifying, and focused on suspension setup, and then came out here and attacked this course. That was a wild race and you could see them pushing their comfort zones. We had some great battles and some wild moments, but everyone kept it on two, so we’re very proud of all the women today.”

RoadRacing World - Tue, 2022-06-14 17:30

TSR-Dunlop wins the N2/WERA National Endurance by Dunlop at Carolina Motorsports Park

Media, PA (June 2022) – The TSR-Dunlop Team captured the overall win at round 1 of the N2/WERA National Endurance Series by Dunlop at Carolina Motorsports Park with riders Hayden Gillim and Taylor Knapp. In all, 43 teams competed for four hours under hot conditions and perfect blue skies for the $23,000 event purse provided by Dunlop, N2 and Yamaha Motor USA.

Gillim established his dominance straight away on the TSR-Dunlop GSX-R1000 running near lap record pace through traffic. Gillim was able to build a 20-second lead over Army of Darkness’s Chris Peris halfway through the first hour and never relinquished the lead. TSR teammate Knapp faced significant competition from AoD’s Cody Wyman and Ben Walters, but neither rider could make up for the gap established by Gillim. TSR-Dunlop won the Heavyweight class and took overall victory by a little over 30 seconds. The N2/BobbleHeadMoto team finished third with the duo of Emerson Amaya and Kevin Olmedo.

The Middleweight class was won by the new Middleweight team, Alpha Omega Racing of Steven Roth, Eziah Davis, and Stefano Mesa. A combination of consistency and blistering speed from Alpha Omega ensured victory over Dillies Bluegrass Bandits and Topbox Road Racing with riders Brandon Salyer, Doug Royce, and Mark Faulkner.

The Lightweight class was a family affair. The race was won by the Brown family with dad, David Brown and brothers Chase Brown and Reese Brown on an SV650 over second place Some Expense Spared Racing. The husband and wife team of Heather and Jared Trees finished third on the SizzleTrees Racing SV650.

The new Relay class is run at the same time as the traditional 4-Hour Endurance classes, but instead of pitstops to change wheels and add fuel, the teams switch complete bikes. The Relay class was won by Team “A Proper Ding Dong” with Team “199 Miles” in second. The all paraplegic team of The Bike Experience with riders David Hunt, Mark Lapansie, and Joe Pomeroy with assistance from Robby Cichielo finished third.

The 2-Hour Ultralight Endurance was won by Team Yo! Ultra with riders Keith Buris and Kris Lillegard over the second place Ready to Ride Racing duo of Ryne Snooks and Logan Cunnison. B Fast Racing Ultra finished in third.

Round 2 of the N2/WERA National Endurance Series by Dunlop will be held at Roebling Road Raceway on July 16th.  Learn more at https://www.n2td.org/endurance/

Canadian Superbike: More From The Races At Grand Bend Motorplex

RoadRacing World - Tue, 2022-06-14 16:31

Double Win for Young at Grand Bend

Ben Young had a stellar weekend at Grand Bend Motorplex for the opening round of the Canadian Superbike Championship. Young won both races aboard his Van Dolder’s Home Team BMW, setting him up well in the points standing for the 2022 season.

Friday’s qualifying session saw Young put in a solid lap time of 1:03.021 – beating his own previously held lap record at the track. Ultimately, the time would see him placed second on the grid for the weekends races, though with a consistent pace and a strong hunger to win.

Excitement was high for the first race of the weekend on Saturday. Young got a great start off the line aboard his BMW S 1000 RR, taking the hole shot into the first corner. The first half of the 20-lap race saw the top 4 racers close, though none could make an attempt for the lead. Young reaped the rewards of his consistency and strong pace, building a solid lead as the race progressed and he ended up crossing the line with a 5 second lead.

With full intention of a repeat result, Young headed into race two with calm confidence. His Van Dolder’s Home Team BMW felt great and the sun was shining. Young wouldn’t get the start he was hoping for, but slotted into second and chased the lead for the first 5 laps. On the sixth lap, Young made the pass into first at turn one and never looked back. Again, he built a strong lead quickly, and took a comfortable 1st place with 6.5 second lead.

This successful weekend not only gives Young a strong 18-point lead in the Canadian Superbike Championship, but Sunday’s win also gives BMW their 50th win in the Superbike class. Young is also now tied for 10th all-time Superbike wins in the Canadian Championship.

Of the weekend, Young says “It was great to open the 2022 season. Riding our backup bike was far from ideal, but we made the best of it and it did us well. We are looking forward to getting the M 1000 RR ready to roll for round two in just under a months time.”

The next CSBK round will be held July 8th-10th at Calabogie Motorsports Park, where Young will look to continue his campaign for the 2022 title.

Young’s partners for his 2022 CSBK Championship season include; BMW Motorrad Canada, Van Dolders Home Team, Scot-Build Developments Inc, Parts Canada, HJC Helmets, Alpinestars, Hindle Exhaust, Barrie Trim and Mouldings, Clearlite, Primitive Patterns, Alpha Racing and Vass Performance Cycle.
