The Yamaha VR46 Master Camp Team is ready for action in the motor-crazy state of Saxony in Germany. They will be tackling the twisty Sachsenring, which Manuel Gonzalez visited once before but is completely new to Keminth Kubo.
Gonzalez arrives in Germany with some very special training sessions under his belt. Last week he visited the Yamaha VR46 Master Camp five-day training programme on the final two days. He joined the selected riders at Valentino Rossi‘s Flat Track circuit at the Motor Ranch, did a MiniGP session at Jeepers Kart Circuit, and a session on Yamaha YZF-R3s at Galliano Park. The experience has helped him recharge his batteries for the upcoming GP weekend.
With the full support of the team, Keminth missed the Catalan GP following the passing of his beloved father. He took some time off to be with his family and loved ones during this emotional time. He now feels that he is ready to return to the track again. He is looking forward to getting a lot of laps in at the Sachsenring this weekend to get back into the rhythm.
The area of Chemnitz is known for its love of car and motorcycle racing. Originally, races in the area were held on closed public roads from the 1920s onward. The Sachsenring was built in 1996 for safety reasons. Two years later, the track hosted its first MotoGP event. The just 12m wide circuit has numerous tight corners (ten left, three right), making this circuit one of the slower tracks on the calendar, but there will still be plenty of action at the German GP.
