“After the performances of the last period, this fourteenth place is an important result for the whole team. Stefano made a good start, kept high his fighting spirit throughout the race to stay there and fight for points area. I’m happy with how the team worked this weekend, there are still a few steps to go and we’ll continue at Silverstone on this path. As far as Isaac is concerned, this weekend has been a kind of test for him: he made the first kilometers with the bike and he’s inserting himself positively in the team. Thanks to the sponsors who have given us support and company this weekend.”

Stefano Manzi - DNF
“Today’s start was pretty quick and I immediately gained a few positions, but unfortunately due to a contact with another rider between turns 2 and 3 I lost ground again. I tried to recover, even if with difficulty, but I was always slow in the straight and, when I was fighting for an overtaking, I arrived too fast and I fell into the gravel. We hope it will be better next weekend in Austria”.

MVR Racing wins with Wahr on Schleiz

mvr schleiz aug 2018 a
The 27th and 28th of July, race 5 and 6 were held at the German circuit of Schleiz. It was a weekend where former super sport driver Kevin Wahr would take place on our bike for the first time. Despite good hope that Wahr, given his experience and qualities, but also Marco Freyer who is going through a good year, could score points these matches, we were somewhat reluctant to make a prediction about possible results of Wahr.

This weekend was the first time that Wahr stepped on our Yamaha R6 without having tested in advance. There was hard work the days before the race to get the bike "fit" for Wahr.
This succeeds quite a bit during qualifying resulted in a nice P5 for Wahr and a solid P14 for Freyer with opportunities for improvement.

Race 1
During the first race Freyer managed to improve some places and eventually ended on a very neat P10 in this competitive driver field. Wahr managed to drive to a P2 which would be better than expected. Unfortunately the competition management judged that there would have been a "jump start". This means that the competition management was of the opinion that Wahr would have started before all the starting lights were off. In analyzing the images we were given a different opinion, however, the competition management stayed with their decision and Wahr was punished with 10 positions. This meant that he finished 12th instead of second. A disappointment, but not something to think about for a long time because the second race was coming.

Race 2
The second race can not be described any differently than a super race from Wahr and a good race from Freyer. Wahr was able to control the race and book the first win for the MVR Racing Team this season. Freyer rode a stable race and ended on a P13.

Jeremy Seewer shines in Belgian sand

Wilvo Yamaha MXGP experienced an enjoyable weekend at the fifteenth round of the FIM Motocross World Championship, Lommel, as Jeremy Seewer and Shaun Simpson recorded solid results in front of many partners and friends of the team. The Grand Prix of Belgium is arguably the hardest race on the schedule and one where the toughest riders shine through.

Proceedings were kicked off in a positive manner in the qualifying race on Saturday, as both riders saved energy for the two longer races and still acquired some solid positions on the starting line. Shaun Simpson reached the chequered flag in eighth, with Jeremy Seewer hot on his heels in ninth. It was the latter who came out on top in the first moto on Sunday though.
Seewer started near the head of the field in sixth and never gave up, despite the taxing conditions, so managed to gain a position and reach the chequered flag in fifth. It was his first top-five finish since the second moto at the Grand Prix of Asia last month.

Jeremy Seewer had a fairly similar outing in the second and final encounter, as he completed the first lap in seventh and then clawed his way up to sixth at the chequered flag. It was another consistent ride and one that left him in sixth overall on the day as well. Thanks to the thirty-one points that were acquired at the Belgian round, Seewer has cemented his spot in the championship standings. Eighth is the position that he occupies heading into his home event at Frauenfeld-Gachnang in two weeks.

The results that Shaun Simpson acquired on race day do not truly represent how well he rode. A fall on the opening lap of the first moto left him with a considerable amount of work to do. Most would have opted to pull in and save energy, but Simpson put his head down and put on an incredible charge that left him in eleventh at the chequered flag. The same position was occupied in the final moto and that left him in tenth overall on the day.

Following a gruelling weekend beneath the beating sun, Wilvo Yamaha MXGP will take advantage of a weekend off before heading to the Grand Prix of Switzerland, presented by iXS, in the middle of August.
