Three weeks have passed after the last two races in Estoril. Three weeks in which Lennox's injury could heal. Directly after the Estoril weekend Lennox went to the hospital.
The first half of the MotoGP season ends with the race in Assen. Now it's time for everyone to take a well-deserved summer break. But before that, here's the race action in Assen from my point of view. In short, this weekend had it in itself.
Finally the Sachsenring is back. Finally spectators again. Finally MotoGP again.
The tickets for the race Sunday were bought spontaneously on Saturday and then it was off to Mugello early in the morning on Sunday. It would have been a missed opportunity not to watch the races live on site.
The race track in Le Mans is always good for a crash. Whether in wet conditions or, as on this Sunday, in the dry, the track is known for crashes. Last year, 118 crashes were recorded, and there was also a lot of graveling during the practice sessions.
After an unusually cold start in Europe with the race in Portimao last Sunday, it was now off to Jerez. In front of packed grandstands (more than 58,000 spectators), a MotoGP rider already showed an exceptional performance in qualifying on Saturday.
Last weekend was the second stop on the World Supersport 300 racing calendar for Lennox Lehmann. It went to Assen in the "Cathedral of Speed". This was not an unfamiliar track for Lennox, as he had already raced here in the ADAC Junior Cup and the IDM Supersport 300.
After four overseas races, MotoGP has arrived in Europe. Now the cards are reshuffled once again. After four races and three different winners, it was now time to find the winner of the Portugal GP. Should there be a repeat winner? Or should a new driver take the top spot on the podium?
You can't make that up, that was the most thought sentence for me over the weekend when watching a WorldSSP300 race. But from the beginning.
After his violent highsider in the WarmUp of Indonesia and his forced break due to the returned double vision, Marc Marquez returned to the track in Texas. The Honda rider has already claimed seven wins in Texas and was considered the favorite despite a ninth-place starting position.
