 Hannes’ start of the first heat was perfect and he came out in 4th after the first corner but a couple of laps later some riders took him out and due to technical problems he had to retire.
Lukas who had to start out of the last row with his wildcard did an awesome job and finished 13th after a crash.

1. Mauno Hermunen
2. Petr Vorlicek
3. Markus Volz

The 2nd heat started with a megacrash in the offroad section and Hannes was involved. Lukas had more luck and came back in 6th position after the first lap.
I took two long laps till Hannes could mnage to get his bike running again, resumed and finished 18th.
Lukas who had an unbelievable race could catch up Bauer, who was sitting in 5th, passed him and had an awesome top 5 finish!!!!!

Results S1 Heat 2:
1. Mauno Hermunen

Our team riders are in top condition.
Hannes was falling short of his expections, but his speed would have been good for a top 5 finish.
Lukas could fascinate, the spectators and the rest of the german supermoto scene, with top finishers
