RoSBK Dementor KTM Track Days, Serres, October 24th 2010

This came like a bonus round of the championship. Romanian Superbike together with Dementor KTM organized a ride-test event on Serres Racing Circuit. Everything was organized like a normal RoSBK round, except that one could test on track some KTM bikes during the training sessions.

Because my teammate Mihai Matei could not attend this event, I asked Ionut Mistode to transport my bike to the track, myself joining the "Balamuc" team for the trip to Serres. After a late departure and a long night travel, we finally arrived at the track on Saturday morning. After my bike has arrived, I joined Dan Demetrescu and Ionut Pasere for the rest of the week-end.

The weather was great for both days of the event, with plenty of sun and temperatures above 20 degrees Celsius.

Although I registered to test three bikes, I only tested one - the KTM 690 Duke. The "most wanted" was the RC8, but the time was not enough for everybody to test it. Anyway, the Duke is one fun machine and I am sure it can go much faster than I was able to take it on the track.

The bonus of the testing session was the races on Sunday, for which I managed to qualify on the grid of the beginner's class. Although I was somewhere in the middle of the starting grid (15th position), I managed to stall the engine at start and I was the last who left the grid for the race. During the 10 laps of the race, I managed to regain 11 positions and I finished 14th, with a best laptime of 1:37.513 during the 6th lap.

The races were followed by a free training session for all groups, which I could attend thanks to Dan Demetrescu who kindly donated me one of his partially used tyres. By the way, during this weekend I only used second hand tyres (one which I used at the previous stage of the competition, one which I bought from Ionut Mistode for a good price and the one that I mentioned above).

Bellow is an on-board video of one of the C Class Training Sessions

The good (for me!) laptime hopefully will let me change the training group from C (beginners) to B (intermediate) next year.
