Folger

Qatar 2015 – determination required, drama guaranteed!

MotoGP gave us one of it’s greatest races in a long time, and a very Italian podium, but the Spanish domination had vanished in all three world championship classes, they did not feature once on the podium in Qatar (though all the Spanish Moto3 and Moto2 rookies look VERY promising).

 

Reporting on the support classes is always enjoyable, both races had winners who had not won before in that class thanks to a mixture of talent and luck. Behind them riders got the chance to excel on their new machines, while other faltered at the final hurdle.

Moto3 saw experienced ‘veteran’ of the class Alexis Masbou claim his first Moto3 win, just his second ever victory at 27 , Moto2 saw Sam Lowes dominance come to nothing, the reigning champion Rabat also falling and Zarco be let down by his machinery. One of the few other riders to drop a sub two minute lap, Jonas Folger was perfectly poised to pick up the pieces there.

But who else impressed? Who bagged a trophy?

MotoGP: German riders home liveries & helmets at the Sachsenring

12/07/2014

It’s time for round nine of the MotoGP championship and we’re at the Sachsenring, a great excuse for all the Germans in the championship to show their patriotism via their kit and this year they have even more to shout about with the national team doing so well at the World Cup (sorry Brazil!)

Jonas Folger may be off the radar for those interested in MotoGP alone, but he has turned up loud and proud in Moto2, going local for his home race with a Bavarian flag livery, which really stands out as you can see from this tweet by his team!

Just to make sure you can’t miss him while at the Saxon circuit the German has also extended the design onto his Alpinestars leathers too:

 

Unfortunately riding at home wasn’t particularly fruitful for the home Moto2 riders in qualifying with Folger, who has graced the podium twice this year down in 20th. Hopefully the AGR  rider can move up through the field on race day so his kit can be seen.

Marcel Schrotter fared a little better up in 14th for Tech3 and  he has chosen to have a more subtle, but very beautiful and very German graphic added to the back of his X-Lite helmet by excellent graphic artist Kinicrea.

You can find more examples of his work (he also does the graphics/logos for most of the German riders- including StefanBradl and Jonas Folger) at @KINICREA or Kinicrea.com. Well worth a look.

Here’s his tweet of that design:

So far so quiet from Stefan Bradl, but who knows, he may be saving it for the race!

UPDATE: Here it is – a Bradl world cup special –

Moto2/Moto3 round up: Poles for Rins and Simeon, eighth for Redding

As usual more on the support calss qualifying from me at paddockchatter.com and detailed race reports at crash.net for Moto3 and Moto2, just click the links to visit.

Estrella Galicia 0,0 rider Alex Rins finds himself on pole for the third time this season, as the qualifying action got under way at the Sachsenring in Germany.

Last seasons top rookie narrowly beat championship leader Luis Salom into second in terms of time, but not on the track as the Red Bull KTM rider had to sit out the end of the session with a blown engine.

The final spot on the front row will be filled by the Mahindra of Portuguese rider Miguel Oliveira after fending off Jack Miller and Maverick Vinales in a last lap battle around the track. Caretta Technology-RTG rider Miller caught up to the battle ahead of him when on a very fast lap, leaving him fifth but the best qualifying Honda rider. Vinales had to settle for sixth, his team and bike having struggled for pace all weekend.

Ahead of them on the grid at his home Grand Prix is Jonas Folger. The Mapre Aspar rider crashed out early in the session but recovered as his speedily repaired bike held out to grab fourth on the grid.

The second of the Mahindra riders Efren Vazquez starts seventh with Romano Fenati enjoying his best qualifying of the year in eighth for San Carlo Team Italia.

 

Moto2 also saw much of it’s action arrive in the closing minutes as the riders tried to set some strong late laps – with the big names in the championship being the ones to miss out.

Belgian rider Xavier Simeon took his maiden pole at the end of qualifying for the Desugaces La Torre Maptaq team, making him the first Belgian took take pole since Didier de Radigues in the 250cc Spa-Francorchamps race in 1989.

The race promises to be a close affair as all the top 20 riders were within a second of his pole time.

Also surprising after a strong weekend where he topped the Moto2 FP3 was Jordi Torres, claiming his first front row start for the Mapfre Aspar team.

Restoring a little order to proceedings was usual suspect Pol Espargaro in third for Tuenti HP 40, though his Pons team-mates were much lower down the grid, Tito Rabat is 23rd after a big FP3 crash left him limping and in pain, one place ahead of Axel Pons in 24th.

Tom Luthi’s last fast lap brought him fourth on the grid for the Interwetten team. He is joined on the second row by top Speed Up rider Simone Corsi in fifth and Julian Simon in Sixth for Italtrans.

Takaaki Nakagami is just one place behind his team-mate in seventh on his return after missing Assen after damaging his collarbone. He is joined on the third row by both Marc VDS riders Scott Redding in eighth and Mika Kallio in ninth, though both had looked to have more pace over the weekend, with Redding having topped FP3.

Gino Rea put in an amazing performance to score 17th as a wild card.

Moto3: UPDATED: Motocross strikes again! – Jonas Folger out of Catalunya race weekend.

Update:

Jonas Folger will miss the Catalunya race weekend after being declared unfit to ride after testing his wrist out in FP1. MotoGP.com confirmed this by posting “after testing right wrist in FP1 declared unfit to ride at Catalunya due to fracture sustained in training 1 week ago” during first practice to their official Twitter account.

Here’s the background to the injury, taken from my earlier post:

It seems the most common road to  injury in bike sport racing often seems to occur away from the race action while the riders are using motocross to keep fit between races. The most recent casualty is Mapfre Aspar’s Moto3 rider Jonas Folger.

The German title hopeful, currently fourth in the championship standings, went for a training ride in Mantova, Italy after the Mugello race weekend with his fellow countryman Marcel Schrotter, who currently rides in Moto2.

Speaking of the fracture he sustained last Wednesday Folger told the MotoGP.com website:

“With the bad luck I had last Wednesday, I had a silly fall and hurt myself.” He continued: “It appears as though I have cracked a bone in my right wrist, so I’m resting it in order to recover as soon as possible. I hurts a little, but it is getting better every day.”

Folger will be assessed on Friday to see if he is fit enough to compete in the Catalunya Grand Prix this weekend.

Moto3 round up:

Luis Salom moved to the front of a pack of six riders who made a big fight of the Mugello Moto3 Grand Prix.

 

 

The Spaniard led an all Spanish, all KTM podium with his second win of the season for his Red Bull Ajo team, though all six in the leading group – Salom,Rins,Oliveira,Folger,Vinales and Marquez – were in with the chance of a win in a closely fought race.

 

 

It was Alex Marquez who made the difference when an overconfident move on his Estrella Galicia machine by the younger Marquez brother caused most of the opposition to need to sit up or move, leaving a gap clear for Salom who took full advantage to break at the front.

 

 

Team Mate Alex Rins, who look to be holding something in reserve had to settle for second, Team Calvo’s Maverick Vinales was happy to keep his consistent run of podiums, like Salom he has been on the rostrum every race so far this season, was third.

Moto2 race round up:

The history books were once again being re-written by Marc VDS rider Scott Redding in Moto2.

 

 

His win came after Aspar rider Nico Terol decided to allow the Brit to pass as he was struggling with his tyres and bike. Redding took the opportunity and gave him no hope of retaking the lead as he stamped his authority on the race and moved away from the Spaniard.

 

 

Redding now leads the championship by a huge 43 points. The 20 year old Kalex rider is the first person to win two races this season, and it was the first time he has won from a pole start.

 

 

He also becomes the first British rider to take back-to-back wins since Rod Gould in 1971 and the youngest to achieve that feat taking the record from legend Barry Sheene.

 

He is also only the third Brit to win at Mugello, joining Barry Sheene who won in 1976 in the 500cc class and Bradly Smith who won the 125cc race in 2009.

 

 

Terol’s second place was his second podium visit of the year after his win in Austin. Joining them on the rostrum was Johann Zarco for Came Iodaracing Project, his first podium appearance in Moto2.

Moto2 and Moto3 Qualifying Round-Up

This is still a Moto2 and Moto3 based blog so here’s an update on how the support classes did in Mugello qualifying!

Maverick Vinales looked to be heading for pole for Team Calvo until Jonas Folger took a leaf out of his boss’ book, Jorge “Aspar” Martinez, and followed him around the track glued to the Spanish rider and had the slipstream to snatch first, with a new pole position record.

 

 

Third and once again making for an all KTM front row was one of the seasons regular frontrunners Estrella Galicia rider Alex Rins.

 

 

Fourth was taken by Jack Miller for Caretta Technology. The Australian was the highest placing Honda on the grid and in achieving that he also equaled his own best previous qualifying position.

The Marc VDS rider timed his runs well to finish on top and will be looking to win two races in a row after his victory last time out in Le Mans.

 

 

He achieved this despite a major crash in FP3, from which the Gloucestershire rider walked away unharmed but demolished his bike, leaving some serious rebuilding to be done by the team.

 

 

Once again finding himself pipped to pole was Italtrans rider Takaaki Nakagami. The Japanese rider held the spot with a time set on just his third lap, which he failed to improve on.

 

 

Pol Espargaro also set his best time on his third lap but that left the Pons Tuenti rider down in tenth on the grid.

 

 

A surprising third place came from the ever improving Marcel Schrotter. The Desguaces La Torre SAG rider scoring a career best qualifying to do so.

Moto3 had the best of the weather in Le Mans and got their race under way in officially dry conditions though the track was still damp and the sky poised for rain.
 
The championship leaders made a break at the front with Maverick Vinales, Jonas Folger, Alex Rins and Luis Salom moving away at the front.
 
It was Vinales who would time his move to perfection, picking the right moment to up the pace and gain his second win of the season in back to back races.
 
The victory at the scene of his first ever career win makes him the first rider to take two wins in moto3 this year, giving the Team Calvo rider a strong 13 point lead in the championship over Luis Salom.
 
Also making the French podium was Alex Rins who held his nerve to take second for Estrella Galicia, while the all-Spanish, all-KTM top podium was completed by Red Bull Ajo rider Salom.
 
Taking a chance on the softer option tyre proved a bad gamble for Mapfre Aspar’s Jonas Folger, it caused a few small errors meaning he had to settle for fourth.
 
Alex Marquez rode a steady race to put both the Estrella Galicia riders in the top five, he was followed across the line by Redox RW Racing’s Jakub Kornfeil who posted some of the fastest laps of the race to push forward to sixth.
 
Romano Fenati found some of his old form with a series of strong moves making him the highest placed Honda powered finisher in seventh for San Carlo Team Italia.
 
British rider John McPhee was just outside the top ten again for the Caretta Technology outfit, one place ahead of team-mate Jack Miller. Fellow Brit Danny Webb, who broke his foot in Saturday’s qualifying crash was not fit to race due to a concussion sustained in the accident.
 
Moto2 followed and was hit by the change of weather bringing the scheduled downpour and ending the race with 22 laps completed.
 
It was an excellent day for the Marc VDS team with Scott Redding taking his first ever Moto2 win, a first victory for the team.
 
The 20 year old Brit was joined on the all Kalex podium by his team-mate Mika Kallio, giving the Belgian team a one-two finish.
 
Belgian fans had even more to celebrate as Xavier Simeon scored the final podium spot for his Desguaces La Torre Maptaq team, beating home rider Johann Zarco, who at one point had lead the race, into fourth for the Came Iodaracing Project. The Frenchman was also the highest placing Suter rider.
 
Redding the only non-Spanish Grand Prix winner this season, and the first since Danny Kent won in 2012, now leads the championship by a hefty 24 points from Tito Rabat.
 
Swiss rider Dominique Aegerter had also been in with a podium shout but finished in fifth for the Technomag carXpert team.
 
Mike Di Meglio also faired well at home, the sole Motobi user finishing seventh for the Jir team.
 
The crashes in Moto2 were as notable as the excellent overtaking manoeuvres employed by Redding to hit the front.
 
After just a handful of laps the Tuenti HP 40 team riders Pol Espargaro, the championship favourite, and Tito Rabat, who entered the race leading the championship, both slid out simultaneously at the same corner. They were soon followed by Takaaki Nakagami, who was leading the race by more than three seconds at the time for the Italtrans team.
 
There were also crashes for Aspar’s Nico Terol and Interwetten Paddock man Tom Luthi.
 
British rider Danny Kent was just outside the points in 16th one place behind his Tech3 team-mate Louis Rossi. Blusens Avintia’s Kyle Smith didn’t go the distance while Gino Rea appeared to have technical issues with his FTR bike, though was able to go back out and gain some experience finishing 26th and ten laps adrift after having been as high as 12th place.
