Race of the Champions | Willy Pomper 2007-09-25 (21:47)
Dear Linda, Freddy and Patrik.

I want to thank you for the nice weekend we had in Assen.
I have enjoyed working with you Freddie, I have learned a lot about how to set up the chassis of a bike, and I know now how a good rider works.
Hope to see you next year in the 250 cc European cup class.
We keep in touch.

Best regards


ONK Assen | Henk-Jan Laning 2007-09-23 (22:33) http://Oude Pekela hjlaning@hotmail.com
Hello racefans,

At this moment Patrik,Fredrik,Linda and Rufes are travelling home.
Lets hope it will be a safe and not so long time journey!.

Leaving home this morning the sun was already shining and many
motorbikes where passing me on the road to Assen.

The Watz crew enjoyed saturday evening...warmup started late...
Willy/Jan prepared the bike almost perfect (its never perfect) so
no rush and stress.

During the warmup Willy was upset...."Whats happening???,Fredrik
is not on the result list"..."Patrik is third!".
When Patrik came into the pitbox he got congratulations from everybody!
Well now we can tell Willy the truth...there was a transponder switch...

So Fredrik third and the same laptime comparing practice. "The bike is
ok" Fredrik said.....I know dreams don't come true..but maybe,maybe
Fredrik is able for a very good result.

Waiting for the race was no problem,a lot of sun and walking around the
paddock is never borring.
Around 15:00hour it was time to go to the parc fermé..when I came there
I say that Patrik got two beautiful pitgirls around him...sometimes I want
to be a racer to.....

At the grid the ladies (thanks Jan!) where standing beside Fredrik...thumbs up
for a good race!.

The start was very good and at the first straight end Fredrik was fourth behind
Roelofs,Gevers and Smees. The gap was a little bit to big to get the slipstream
of the fast Aprilia's.
After five laps Beitler and Markham where passing Fredrik and Fredrik was not able
to follow.....problems with the bike?
Halfway the race was not very exciting anymore...Hans Smees first with a gap off 8seconds
Gevers..third Roelofs + 10, fourth Beitler + 15, fifth Markham + 16, sixth Fredrik + 20 and
seventh Velthuizen + 22.
At the last corner Mike Velthuizen was able to pass Fredrik....so 7 at the end......

Whats happened with the bike?.....nothing said Fredrik..after 4 laps my wrist was hurting
and the underarms muscles where "pumped". The pumping gets more and more..so
the feeling was gone..braking was very difficult...

Ok....these things happened..you don't always get what you want..
Frustrating?....well racing is 90% frustration and 10% succes....

No blaming on Fredrik..he did a perfect job for the team this weekend a we all enjoyed
his way off racing.

Patrik's race?.....after 5 laps he retired..maybe to much pressure after the warmup result?

At 17:30hour it was time to say goodbye....Fredrik,Linda and Patrik thank you so much
for the weekend!


Nicklas Cajback was during the Supersport 600cc fourth..two laps before the end he was out.

ONK Assen | Henk-Jan Laning 2007-09-22 (20:42) http://Oude Pekela hjlaning@hotmail.com
Hello racefans,

After a goodnight sleeping there was no reason to hurry...first practice at 11:00hour.

A look at the sky...well the sun is trying is to get trough,little bit cloudy but no wind so good race circumstances.

Last race Fredrik left the Honda with a best laptime of 1.49,8.....after the first practice Fredrik was able to get 1.49,5 and he was fourth fastest.
Not bad,but Fredrik was not so impressed with the times..."I still got suspension problems on the front,we have to work on it"..

"Much" work for the mechanics,but its nice working when the bike gets faster and faster...
Patrik was enjoying being on the track and his laptime 2.06 means 18th place.
Not only working at the bike(s)...also time to talk with many riders/people passing bye.

Second practice took place at 15:00hour...the weather was still nice and the first run Fredrik was
riding together with Toby Markham. Coming into the pit the time was already 1.48,3...more important it looks like that the suspension problem is solved!.
The second run Fredrik and the Honda both likes racing and the time was now 1.47,8!...one more
time in,little changes and than again faster?..no the practice is to short (when you got enough time?).

Fredrik was satisfeid with the bike.."It feels confident now"..."Maybe tomorrow I can start pushing"...
Patrik was 2seconds faster comparing to the morning session "enough improvement for today" he said...

Starting grid 250cc
1. Hans Smees 1.44,7
2. Randy Gevers 1.46,3
3. Jan Roelofs 1.47,0
4. Toby Markham 1.47,2
5. Ronald Beitler 1.47,7
6. FREDRIK WATZ 1.47,8
7. Mike Velthuizen 1.47,8
8. Erwin Postmus 1.50,3
9. Jarno Vos 1.51,1
10Martin Johannessen 1.52,3
20Patrik Fredriksson 2.04,5

This evening the Honda gets "check/double check" and for sure Fredrik,Patrik and
Linda will have a nice evening at the Assen paddock, bedtime can be later...warmup
starts at 12:15...

Weather forecast tommorrow looks great...sunny and 22 degrees.
The 12 lap race is starting at 15:15hour.

ONK Assen | Henk-Jan Laning 2007-09-21 (21:17) http://Oude Pekela hjlaning@hotmail.com
Hello racefans,

After a long journey Patrik,Fredrik,Linda and the dog Rufes (right way spelling?) arrived early friday morning at the Assen circuit.

The circuit/welcome center was closed till 16:00hour....raindrops were falling on the roof....so time to get some sleep.

I don't say that the sun was shining when they all woke up..but it was dry and more teams arrived at the welcome center area.
Willy Pomper also arrived and after visit the welcome center, Patrik was riding the bus just in front off pitbox 30.

Unpacking/installation pitbox took not so long and at last Fredrik's Honda and Patrik's Yamaha were placed "on the table".
The last months the Honda got some new parts and the "swedish coloured" bike looks ready for racing...well just wait and see!

This evening there is time to visit friends on the paddock...and maybe "little" work on the bike(s).

Saturday weather forecast: 19 degrees and rain possibility 50%.
23 competetors 250cc got there practice at 10:30hour and 15:00hour.

Tomorrow evening "everything" about Assen practice day!
