Positions 20 and 30 for Kornfeil and Pulkkinen in Brno

Even though the riders of Peugeot Motocycles SAXOPRINT had a good start to the 10th race of the season they merely finished 20th and 30th, respectively, in the mixed conditions of Brno.

Already this morning the teams realized that this race won´t be an easy one again. Having mixed weather conditions at the Automotodrom Brno the riders had to deal with a wet track at first and then with a dry track.
Following grid penalties for two riders Jakub Kornfeil could start his race from 23rd position. On the wet track he had a good start putting him 11th where he could stay at first.
During the ongoing race the track started to dry presenting difficult conditions for all riders. On a half wet half dry track Kornfeil didn´t have enough grip to stay with the other riders and so he dropped behind to 17th place. There he kept fighting for positions between 20 and 25. In the last third of the race the track became more and more dry giving the local hero a better feeling for the bike again. As a r..

Kornfeil suffers unlucky crash in the qualifying

His home race didn´t bring any luck to local hero Jakub Kornfeil today. After a collision in the first lap the experienced Czech has to start his race from 24th position tomorrow. Patrik Pulkkinen finished his qualifying as 31st.

After the rain intermezzo yesterday the heat wave returned to the Automotodrom Brno on this Saturday. Under the Czech sun the riders of Peugeot Motocycles SAXOPRINT Kornfeil and Pulkkinen could go much faster lap times in the third Free Practice and move up to 17th and 29th position, respectively.
Instead of building on this improvement Kornfeil received a setback right at the beginning of the qualifying. A collision with another rider took the local hero out in his first lap – luckily he walked away unhurt. The bike on the other side was quite damaged so his crew had a lot of work to do to get the bike working again. Having only five minutes left and therefor only enough time for one last lap the experienced Czech couldn´t accomplish much more and has to s..

Wet first practice day in Brno

As usual the rain follows the MotoGP circus to every race this season. After a wet first training day the Peugeot Motocycles SAXOPRINT riders Kornfeil and Pulkkinen finished 27th and 32nd on the combined timesheets.

With lap times between 2:22.00 and 2:32.00 they were far off the best times. Local hero Jakub Kornfeil ended up in 25th position with his personal best of 2:26.846.

Just in time for the second Free Practice the rain more or less stopped, but the tr..
