RoSBK 2011 Round 1, Serres, March 20th

The first round of the 2011 edition of the Romania Superbike Championship (RoSBK) was eagerly waited by all participants. We headed to Greece to meet old friends, good time and of course good food! I went together with Dan Demetrescu, Ionut Pasere and Dan Tudorache (for the first time at Serres).

On Friday the weather was ok, we could even see some sun. I had the chance to stretch a little after the winter and get used to the bike again. I also discovered a lot of new cracks and dents on the track. Unfortunately, Saturday (the qualifying day) it rained all the time and i didn't put any lap on the track. So, when I went to register for the race on Sunday morning, all the places on the grid were complete and I was not allowed to be part of this race. The good news were that it would be another open race in the afternoon, the Israeli Cup. It was an open race, so I registered for that one.

During the race, the track was cold and had some wet spots because of the Saturday rain, but, generally speaking, it was ok for racing. I started from the middle of the grid and after a race without incidents I finished on the 12th position, my best lap being 1:35.444.

In the end of the day, it was organized an endurance race. Because it was supposed to last only one hour, I decided to register for this race as a "one-person team". I had a very good start and at a certain point I reached the third position in the race. Then, after about half an hour, the rain began to fall and I had to retire because my tires were for dry weather. I finished 7th, after putting on 17 laps out of which the best was the 7th (1:36.124). Not bad, taking into account that it was the second race in that day...


This was the first time I used tyre warmers (Puig, from Motorteam) - a big difference! - and also the first time when I joined the B class (intermediate). A few years ago, my laptime would allow me to race against the "big boys", but the level of the championship is continuously increasing.
