Alex Schacht completed his first World Supersport race earlier today in a positive 17th position.
The rider who has made the jump from the Superstock category battled hard with several more experienced riders throughout the 18 lap race and narrowly missed out on a point scoring result finishing less than 1 second behind Roberto Tamburini at the flag.
Schacht will now regroup and focus on the next round at Assen in a fortnight which the talented Danish youngster will be treating as his home race.
Alex Schacht – Racing Team Toth: “The race today was very good. It was a long race, 18 laps but I felt my fitness level was very high and I could challenge the other guys at the end. It was a great race and I hope in Assen that I can be in the points.”
