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.
