|Grattis till en lyckad helg trots krangel med hojen/hojarna!!
Läste följande pa highsider.se:
"Fredde Watz är ikapp Cajback. Kanske att Watz byter skinnställ till nästa år? En mer avslappnad förare än Watz
får man leta länge efter."
Byta ställ? Läng pengarna pa köttsoppa istället tycker jag, verkar vara ett vinnade koncept!
Mvh fran österrike!
|Dutch TT Assen 2009
| Henk-Jan Laning
|Very disappointed that the oppertunity TT Assen this year has failed.
We tried our best, but its frustrating that their is an age limit for 250cc start.
Well...we tried...so "take a look at the bright site"...maybe "Kingma racing"
has to come to sweden sometime (hahaha) for some nice race days!
Enjoy the weekend!
|It is frustrating that an old man is not alowed to race anymore.............

|Raceday "Eastern Monday" Assen
| Henk-Jan Laning
|At ten o'clock this morning it was time to go to the Assen racetrack.
The sun was already shining, so good to notice that the weather forecast was wrong....no rain today, but much sunshine, no wind and 22 degrees!!
Two Superbike races today, the first one started at 12:50hour.
Raymond Schouten was leading after the first lap. Behind Raymond there was already a 1,5 second gap....so strange to see, almost the whole race this gap was the same.
Gareth Jones, Gino Rea (he replaced the injuried dutch rider Joan Veijer), Bob Withag and Kai Borre Andersen made a good watching performance behind Raymond.
Gino Rea crashed and Kai Borre Andersen entered the pitlane with mechanical troubles. As Bob Withag for a while left the right track direction it was an unexpected third place at the end for French rider Maxime Berger.....and swedish rider Alexander Lundh took fourth!
Alexander was riding great, he has to give everything against the Ducati guys Arie Vos and Ghisbert van Ginhoven. Passing a backmarker at the straight end, I saw Alexander stretching his leg...he was frustrated with the backmarker or his leg was cramped (haha).
Result first race:
1. Raymond Schouten
2. Gareth Jones (australia) + 4,3
3. Maxime Berger (french) + 9,9
4. Alexander Lundh (sweden) + 16,0
5. Arie Vos + 16,6
6. Ghisbert v.Ginhoven + 18,2
14. Hampus Johansson + 56,5
Waiting for the 125cc race there was time for a paddock walk. It was so good to see Jaap Kingma, his brother, our TT '08 photographer Henk Teerink and Roel at the staying place racing team ermelo.
Roel is a "big person" comparing to this team....one of the (125cc) riders is...Tasia Rodink.
Tasia was Fredrik's gridgirl last year TT !!.
We drunk a cup off coffee and offcourse we spoke about Watz Racing....don't worry, it was only good words!
After that I visit the Fagerhaug family. At the moment I arrived Sturla had a conversation with Jürgen vd Goorbergh. It was nice talking, you could see that there was a "click" between those two. So good that Jürgen is around to speak and help young racers!.
At the end off the first lap 125cc Pepijn Bijsterbosch (second practice) crashed at the last corner and took Daniel Kartheininger and Robin Mulhauser with him. So Sturla was third after the first lap.
In front where Michael vd Mark and Marvin Fritz. These two where much to fast, and made a great race
for victory. Sturla's bike was not the fastest so Frank vd Dragt and swedish rider Alexander Kristiansson past him only because there bike was faster.
Behind Sturla there where more faster bikes, but Sturla was able to hold fifth place.
At the rostrum I saw instead off dutch rider Frank vd Dragt, the young swedish rider Kristiansson on third spot.....Frank has made a jumpstart and 20 seconds penalty....so Sturla ended fourth!
1. Michael vd Mark
2. Marvin Fritz + 0,2
3. Alexander Kristiansson (sweden) + 36,2
4. Sturla borch Fagerhaug (norway) + 43,0
5. Damien Raemy (swiss) + 43,1
6. Joel Bigler (swiss) + 43,2
7. Kevin Valk + 46,2
Last year 250cc champion Mark Bezemer was 14, and our gridgirl Tasia 17.
The second superbike race started without Arie Vos. The Ducati from Arie got mechanical problems.
First race winner Raymond Schouten crashed at the second lap and Gino Rea followed him at lap four. Gino crashed in both races....don't believe that the mechanics where happy with him today....
Second Race result:
1. Gareth Jones (australia)
2. Kai Borre Andersen (norway) + 4,6
3. Maxime Berger (French) + 5,5
4. Bob Withag + 12,6
5. Alexander Lundh (sweden) + 14,6
6. Ghisbert v.Ginhoven + 17,4
Don't no why...but Hampus Johansson was not taking part second race.
Due to the fact that there where some riders not starting, former ice-skating champion
Rintje Ritsma made his first motorrace. Rintje ended at 30 and last place, no worse talking
about that...respect for a great sportmen!
Sorry for the long story....race result Supersport 600
1. Arie Vos
2. Ronald ter Braake + 2,3
3. Vincent Lonbois (belgium) + 4,7
4. Roy ten Napel + 5,2
5. Swen Ahnendorp + 13,6
6. Joey Litjens + 14,4
Unfortunately after the last race it was not possible for me to say goodbye to the Faugerhaug family (they already left)....I hope that they have a good save journey back home!
Enough for this moment....it has been an fantastic race weekend!
|Thank you Henk-Jan for updates from Assen. We really would have liked to be there, we miss you all, but for sure we are coming later this season, so until then keep the good work up and say Hi to everybody from us.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend, and give our best to Wilma and Melvin.
Big hug, Linda
|Practice "Eastern saturday" ONK Assen
| Henk-Jan Laning
|Almost nine o'clock in the evening....time to leave the backgarden and put some words on the guestbook comparing today's practice at Assen.
Sitting so late in the backgarden means that it was a beautiful summer sunny saturday.
First interesting practice (125cc) started this morning at 10:30hour, so no early leaving home.
The sun was already trying to get through when I travelled to the track. The last mile before the parking place I say some bikers in the mirror coming from behind.....same procedure as always:
"turn the radio off and the window down....enjoy the bikers music when they are passing"
It felt so good..to see the track again after so many months.
The weather conditions today where perfect. No wind, sunny and 22 degrees.
The 125cc class was dominated bye Michael vd Mark. No one was able to really follow Michael.
Swedish rider Alexander Kristiansson was third after the first practice, but is starting fifth on monday.
125cc (25 competetors)
1. 1.48,8 Michael vd Mark
2. 1.50,1 Pepijn Bijsterbosch
3. 1.50,3 Marvin Fritz (Germany)
4. 1.50,9 Frank vd Dragt
5. 1.51,0 Alex Kristiansson (Sweden)
7. 1.51,5 Sturla Borch Fagerhaug (Norway)
Last year dutch 250cc champion Mark Bezemer is starting from 22e place.
55 riders started at 11:00hour their supersport practice. At the moment that the riders where
waiting for "the pitlane green light" I was missing (Fredrik & Linda) Watz racing.......
WorldChampionship competetor Arie Vos only took part in the morning session.
The second session Arie crashed at the first corner after completing his first lap.
Arie got problems with breathing and has to visit hospital for a check.
No injuries as it looks now...tomorrow Arie has to visit hospital again.
Two session result:
1. 1.43,6 Ronald ter Braake
2. 1.44,0 Arie Vos
3. 1.44,5 Joey Litjens
4. 1.44,7 Roy ten Napel
5. 1.44,9 Vincent Lonbois (Belgium)
6. 1.45,4 Hugo vd Berg
The superbike class got a very special rider on the entry list. Former and many times European and
Worldchampion ice-skating Rintje Ritsma is this year Superbike racing.
Unfortunately Rintje was not able to qualify....his head was red after practice...so he tried hard to go faster. Arie Vos only took part morning session (see story Supersport above). Arie was riding his 2008 champion Ducati champion bike.
Andreas Martensson was on the entry list, but was not racing today.
Practice result Superbike (49 competetors)
1. 1.41,8 Gareth Jones (Australia)
2. 1.41,9 Raymond Schouten
3. 1.42,1 Bob Withag
4. 1.42,1 Kai Borre Andersen (Norway)
5. 1.42,5 Gino Rea (Great Britian)
6. 1.42,6 Arie Vos
7. 1.42,6 Maxime Berger (France)
12. 1.43,5 Alexander Lundh
22. 1.45,4 Hampus Johansson
Nice to tell at the end.....at lunchtime I visit Fagerhaug family.
The parents off Sturla gave me very good Norwegian coffee and we talked nice about many things.
When they where leaving Norway it was snow...getting closer to Assen it turned to rain and grey looking...in Assen its was summer sunny on Friday and today!
Sturla's bike is not the fastest bike but this is not most important....Sturla is out on the track and can make many laps (kilometres) as practice for the Red Bull rookie cup race Dutch TT in June and 125cc practice.
Weather forecast for Eastern Racemonday?.....16 degrees and 65% rain possibility.
What's happening on Eastern Sunday in Assen?...don't know...maybe searching eggs gravel corner? (hahaha)
