Robin Taborsky had a great weekend too. He is feeling more and more comfortabel on the XBR and was dropping his laptimes down to 1.39 over the days.
The Pro BEARS are leading by some quick guys with there Ducatis, the plan for the weekend was to get Robin into contact with the leaders that he could ride with them to learn and to pick up more speed.
Not only that he was going with the leaders, he also was fastest in Qualyfying and rode to the poleposition, that was more than expected and the Team was really cheering. Great to watch this progress. In the last Qualifying the gearbox broke and the team needed to change the engine. It worked in that limited time perfect, thanks to all who were involved. Bike was ready for the race but Robin never before was riding a Slipperclutch and also the primaryratio was a bit too short for the track. There was no more practicetime so he experienced the new engine first time in the informationlap direct in front of the start. That braked him a bit in, so he needed some laps to find back his rythem. At the end just a couple of inches were missing for his first podium. A great P4 finish, well done!
Second race he again needed some laps to pick up the speed of the 3 leaders, but than in the moment when he got contact the engine gave up and a major oilspillage on the reartyre let him badly slide through the Shell “S” turn. He managed that situation very well and parked the bike on the side.
The Team say sorry, but he got in both races the taste of podium, his speed is coming, very well done Robin!
What else the weekend had for us? We had a schoolclass for visit in the pitbox and is was great to see these kids listening to Robin when he was explaining how to race and how the protection equipment work.
