After a one weekend break, the PrüstelGP team heads north to the BritishGP at the Silverstone Circuit.
With a length of 5.9 kilometers, the Silverstone Circuit is the longest track on the Grand Prix calendar. Characterized by long straights, which date back to the times when today’s circuit was a military airfield, the track layout alternates with partly wide, partly tight corners where hard braking is a must. Acceleration, top speed and corner speed have to be in perfect balance to be at the front of the pack in a race at Silverstone Circuit.
Ryusei Yamanaka and Filip Salac are looking forward to the race weekend, which will start as usual on Friday morning at 10:00 with the first free practice session. Yamanaka is fighting and training hard to pass the medical test before the race weekend and thus be able to compete in the British Grand Prix despite a shoulder injury that is not yet 100% healed. Salac, on the other hand, is ready – and is looking forward to building on the work he did in Austria on his third race weekend with PrüstelGP on the KTM.
“The Silverstone circuit is completely new to me. It’s all the more important that I can be there from the start and work on my setup and track knowledge from FP1. To do that, though, I first have to pass the medical test – which is what I train for every day. With the right preparation, I hope that I can compete the race weekend from the first practice together with the team.”
“Finally we’re getting back on the bike. I’m looking forward to continuing to work with the team. Silverstone is not the easiest track and I think we will have more work than in Spielberg. But I’m looking forward to it and I’m excited to see how far we can continue to build on the groundwork from Spielberg at Silverstone.”
