Jordi Torres & Nico Terol continue to chase progress in Germany

 In Moto2, News


With a huge ferris wheel perched on top of the hill overlooking Sachsenring, the circuit itself could easily be mistaken for a roller coaster as it twists its way through the valley below and the Moto2 riders must be ready to take on all the thrills and spills of the ride this weekend.

The German circuit is the shortest on the calendar but every inch of it favours the brave, with a series of blind, fast corners that flow around its 4km anti-clockwise layout.

A wet race last time out in Holland threw up a few welcome surprises on the podium and the riders will once again have one eye on the equally unpredictable German skies this weekend as they aim to sign off for the summer break on a high.

Jordi Torres smiles at the mere mention of Sachsenring and it’s no wonder as it was the scene of the Spaniard’s first ever Grand Prix victory last season. The MAPFRE Aspar man has made strong progress in recent weeks and knows that he will be among the list of podium favourites on Sunday if he can stay on an upward curve throughout the weekend.

His team-mate Nico Terol also made steps forward in Holland despite going backwards in a strange race but the MAPFRE Aspar Team rider is taking the positives and feeling confident of a strong result before the holiday period kicks in.

Jordi Torres:
“In Germany we will be looking to continue with the progress we have made in the last few races. Even though the results haven’t happened my feeling on the bike is getting better every week and we are becoming more and more competitive. I am really happy that the next race is at Sachsenring, where we had such a great result last season. I think it’s important for us to have a good race before the summer break and we know we have the bike to do it this weekend, so everything is in our favour. Sachsenring has some long corners that all link together, with not many straights, which tends to suit my riding style and that’s why I like it there. We’ll be giving it everything.”

Nico Terol:
“I quite like Sachsenring. We did a good job there last season but suffered a mechanical problem but usually I get into a good flow around this track so I am looking forward to this weekend. Obviously we have struggled to get a feeling with the bike this season but we know that we could have come away with a good result from Assen if we had made the right tyre choice. That was a shame but the fact we were so competitive in the wet gives me confidence and motivation to get a good result in Germany before the summer break. It will be important to make a strong start from the first session and make sure we qualify in a good position on the grid. Sachsenring is tight and twisty so last week I did some special supermoto training at a karting track to try and replicate the conditions we will have to be ready for in Germany.”
