Super-GP Champions Trophy Round 2 at East London Grand Prix Circuit.
It was slightly a difficult weekend for the Otto Racing Team at the coast.
Ricardo took the double race win from pole position in the 250Cup and finished a distant 2nd in both SuperJunior races after starting 2nd on the grid. He was very happy with these results as just 2 weeks ago he broke his collarbone, the Team is very happy with the results youngster Ricardo brought home!
Zanté,our LADY RIDER, on the other hand had a small off on Friday morning in Free Practice 1 which put her in an uncomfortable position for the rest of the weekend suffering with abit of pain from the crash. She tested the quality of the ORT-Online rear sets and says she was very impressed. She is currently still recovering from a broken hand - she qualified 17th and finished race 1 in 19th place but unfortunately suffered from a broken chain in race 2 which means she couldn’t complete the race. She wasn’t very happy with the outcomes of the weekend but as the young lady says “I won’t give up, life can go from 0 to 100 real quick.”
Last but DEFINANTLY not least, Kewyn had an outstanding qualifying session where he put his ORT Kawasaki on the front row of the grid in 3rd place! He completed race 1 in 5th place, only missing 4th place by 100th of a second! TALK ABOUT CLOSE RACING! Unfortunately he got taken out in race 2, due to the close racing that takes place in this class he was happy to be part of the fight! He will definitely be back stronger at chasing a podium position in the Super600 class at the next round of the National Super-GP Champions Trophy.
The team will be working towards Zwartkops Raceway for Round 3 of the Super-GP Champions Trophy. They are in full RACE PREP MODE making sure all bikes are ready and ORT-Online are only making it easier for them by supplying all parts they need.
