PETRONAS Sprinta Racing riders Adam Norrodin and Ayumu Sasaki make their way to the Czech Republic this week, as they prepare to kick start the second half of the season at the Automotodrom Brno.
After a two-week summer break, the PETRONAS Sprinta Racing duo return to action at a circuit that saw them finish in 9th [Adam] and 15th [Ayumu] place last year.
With a solid 10th and 11th place at the German Grand Prix last time out, both Adam and Ayumu will be looking to capitalise on their point scoring momentum.
#7 ADAM NORRODIN
“We finished quite well in Germany [P11], so I’m feeling very motivated to continue this way in Brno. Every year I have struggled a little in Brno but I feel a lot stronger within myself now, so I’m confident that I can do better. I have already spoken with my crew chief about this and we have put together a plan that I think will help me a lot. We will try a different set-up this time too, so for sure it will be more interesting for me. Over the summer break I have really been preparing myself for the second half of the season; I also entered a couple of races in the local Championship, so I feel much more focussed going back this time. I’m ready to get back to work.”
#71 AYUMU SASAKI
“I’m really excited for Brno. Our last race in Germany was pretty good and we were able to improve a lot from previous races. We had a good rhythm and the pace to follow the front. The result was not what I wanted but at least we could collect more points and finish tenth. The work that we did in Germany was good, so this is how we must continue the rest of the season. I hope to take what I’ve learned from the first half of the year and more so during the last few rounds, to improve my performance even more; Brno must be the turning point in the season for us. I’m really looking forward to this next race; it’s a track that I like and I feel very focussed on what I must do. It’s only been two weeks, but I already miss my bike and my team. I have been training hard to be ready for this weekend, so now I just want to get on track!”
