World champion Cortese eager for more GP wins24/10/2012
Red Bull KTM Ajo factory team will definitely not take it easy after securing the first ever Moto3 world championship last Sunday at Sepang circuit in Malaysia.
“Just the opposite”, online team leader Aki Ajo says, vcialis 40mg “Our riders are eager for more top results and that way also to take the constructor´s world championship. KTM is now for the first time this season leading the championship standing when there are two GPs left.”
The next GP will be held this weekend on the 4448 meters long Phillip Island circuit in Australia. Phillip Island also ends the hectic period of three consecutive GP weekends.
“For sure this has been a tough but also a really productive time”, online Ajo says, “We are feeling really great after winning the world championship and having a good party. We have been really relieved after Malaysia. On the other hand we aim for the challenges all the time.”
Ajo doesn´t have any troubles of keeping his riders on the track after the party time. A new world champion German Sandro Cortese is a great example.
“One of the biggest targets of my life has come true and a certain kind of stress is gone now”, Cortese describes, “However, that doesn´t mean that my motivation is in lower level for the rest of the races. That´s not the case: I have a huge urge to win the two last GPs”, announces Cortese, whose one of the favourite tracks Phillip Island is.
Last year Cortese won the 125-class in Australiassa. The German who has taken four victories from this season highlights that he wants to fully enjoy the racing. That and determined work will bring good results. Also Ajo emphasize the same.
“We will enjoy the moment but don´t stay in this feeling for too long. Despite the championship the season continues and we keep on working hard like before.
Beside Cortese Red Bull KTM Ajo Team´s rider Briton Danny Kent has also won this season. Kent took the first victory of his career ten days ago at Motegi circuit in Japan.
“That victory gave a good boost to my self confidence but it also made me more relaxed”, Kent says, “My aim in Phillip Island is to be in a leading group again and I know that I have enough pace for that.
Last Sunday Kent was sixth at Sepang. He is also sixth in championship standing.
Cortese´s and Kent´s teammate Arthur Sissis, who is 14th in championship gets ready for his home race after finishing 11th in Malaysia.
“It´s of course great to compete in front of my home crowd”, Kent says, “But Phillip Island doesn´t give me any benefit yet as I have only competed on this track once before.”
