TT Assen: To continue raising form
Jonas Folger expectantly looking forward to this weekend’s round eight of the season at the historic TT Assen.
The 22-year-old German Moto2 rider took benefit from the nearly three-weeks break to gain some distance from racing, particularly after a demanding first third of the season. So Folger now heads recovered and highly motivated into the Dutch GP in Assen where he likes the track because of its fast and flowing layout. His strong race performance last time out in Barcelona and also his strong results last year in Assen gives hopes to continue his raising form this weekend too.
The World Championship’s visit to the northern part of the Netherlands has the longest tradition in grand prix racing. Since the introduction of the FIM World Championship back in 1949, the Dutch TT is a permanent entry to the calendar but this year’s edition of the TT Assen features a massive change to the time schedule as the race are held on Sunday for the very first time after race day was Saturday traditionally in the past.
#94 Jonas FOLGER (Dynavolt Intact GP, KALEX) – World Championship position 6th (57 points):
“This longer break including two weekends without racing was good at all but now I’m looking forward to Assen. Mostly due to the many German fans, which are always to expect for the Dutch round, I’m going highly motivated into the Assen race. In any case, Assen is a track I like a lot because of its fast and flowing layout which should work well for my riding. I think this fact is underlined by last year’s results as I did well there. But also after the good race last time in Barcelona I look forward to keep making progress in respect to my performance. Of course, I would like to perform like this from the very first lap Friday morning.“
