After 4 completed races on the fast and again not technically demanding track in Birmingham, Carl could only reach the 2nd place! With 4 holeshots
the fifteen-year-old from Bonn had actually got himself into a good starting position, but in the end it just wasn´t enough for the victory. Winner of Birmingham is last year’s UK Champ Ben Clayton.
Carl after the races on Saturday:
That’s too bad! I was the fastest in every time practice but just couldn’t keep my speed over the whole race distance. Even the scarce results are only a small consolation as I lost important points for the championship.
Coach Seb Tortelli:
Carl had amazing starts this weekend. 4 Holeshots out of 4. He fought hard to stay on top but he found a strong opponent that was able to take away the win from him. He has now more than 2 weeks of work ahead to come ready to take back his first place.
