Loris Capirossi geht, Ben Spies kommt

Suzuki hat entschieden, daß Ben Spies den verletzten Loris Capirossi ersetzen soll. Sein Debüt gibt der AMA Superbike Pilot am 22.6. in Donignton.

Loris hofft, daß seine verletzte Hand bis Assen wieder in Ordnung ist. Laut Dr. Costa´s Empfehlung ist es momentan nicht ratsam auf die Maschine zu steigen und damit Rennen zu bestreiten. Loris wünscht Ben alles Gute und er soll gut auf das Motorrad aufpassen … er möchte es demnächst wiederhaben.

Das Zitat von Ben Spies:

“I think this will be a good thing for me to start out at Donington; it is a track I don’t know so I have no pressure. I haven’t done any testing on the bike or with race and qualifying tyres so I am not really expected to do anything much, so I can just go out there and learn how everything works and enjoy the event,” said Spies, who believes the experience he gains at Donington Park will help him for his wild card slots in Laguna Seca and Indianapolis.

Spies added: “This will be good for when we get back to the wildcard races in Laguna and Indianapolis because I know those tracks and I’ll have some knowledge of the bike and be able to put my head down and go for it there.

“This is great for me to get the chance, but it is in an unfortunate way that I am there because of the injury to Loris and I wish him all the best on a full recovery. I hope I can represent everybody really good and just want to go out there and have some fun!”

Loris und Ben, was da wohl in den Köpfen vorgeht:
