MOTUL TT Assen: CFMOTO heads to the ‘Cathedral of Speed’ in the Netherlands

After a race weekend with mixed feelings at the home track of the Sachsenring, the team will continue to Assen in the Netherlands. The city and region in the north of Holland lives for racing. The circuit has hosted a championship race every single year since the inception of the Motorcycle World Championship in 1949 – a record and making the TT Circuit the longest serving circuit of any circuit on the calendar.

In this case, historic does not mean old, because since then the track has been rebuilt again and again until it finally got the appearance we know today in 2006. The 4.5 km layout allows for very high speeds – and it is not without reason that the circuit is also called the “Cathedral of Speed”. Popular with drivers and spectators alike, the narrow track with its fast changes of direction is a highlight of the racing calendar, with hundreds of thousands of fanatical spectators expected year after year.

It will be an important weekend for the riders of CFMOTO Racing Pruestel GP. #43 Xavi Artigas, who could collect 3 points last week in the fight for the world championship, will also try to get the maximum out of himself and his bike and especially in the predicted wet conditions to bring home a good placement in Assen. #99 Carlos Tatay is under a bit of pressure after his crash in turn 1 last weekend, but won’t let that take away his focus and joy to give everything on one of his favorite tracks.

#43 Xavier Artigas

“We are ready and eager to start a new GP in Assen, a circuit that brings back good memories. Most likely it will rain all weekend, so it will be time to pick up a good feeling for the wet track and a good rhytm within my riding style.”

#99 Carlos Tatay

“Assen is a track that I like very much. I’m still annoyed about my mistake at the Sachsenring, so I’ll try to make up for that in the Netherlands and have a particularly good race. We’re going into the race with a penalty advantage, so I’ll have to work hard to create a good starting point for Sunday.”
