Round 8 ADAC MX Masters series, Holzgerlingen, 16th September 2012
The closing round was held at the scenic track in Holzgerlingen. Marcus Schiffer had clinched the title three weeks ago at Emmen. The German missed the final race of the 2012 campaign because of an injury. Schiffer hurt his neck at the Grand Prix of Europe in Italy a week ago. The Silent Sport Suzuki pilot was on hand to meet and greet the fans, but not yet ready to climb back on the bike.
"The crash had the potential to be devastating. I couldn't properly feel my arms and legs at first. Luckily the symptoms went away quickly. I now feel fine but stiff around my neck and basically overall. I'm sorry for the fans not to be lining up. At least I am here and able to present myself."
Julien Lieber, racing the MX2 factory Suzuki for the Rockstar Energy Europe Team, performed solidly. The Belgian has found his feet in the German series and finished a strong fifth overall - despite the disadvantage of racing his 250cc bike against the more powerful 450s.
Nicolai Hansen (Team AC MoTeC - MG Sport by STC) narrowly missed the top ten. The Dane finished eleventh.
The ADAC Youngster Cup had already been decided also. Jeremy Seewer did clinch the title for the Rockstar Energy Europe Team at the previous round. At Holzgerlingen the Swiss ended the series in style with maximum points. The 18-year-old impressed although carrying a small thumb injury. He emphasized his status among the Suzuki hopefuls.
"I am delighted to post such a strong result. I had a nasty crash two weeks ago at the Benelux GP and didn't feel 100 per cent. I enjoyed a terrific season in 2012 and to win the Youngster Cup is a major success for myself and the team. I will prepare for the Motocross of Nations at Lommel next, then we will discuss what classes to compete in next year."
Seewers teammate Jorge Zaragoza ended the first moto in ninth position. The Spaniard couldn't finish the second moto due to mechanical gremlins.
Peter Irt, riding for the MXC.de Racing-Team, was doing well. He scored sixth place overall in the series finale, courtesy of a fourth and seventh place.
The final two motos of the Junior Cup were extremely interesting. First the series leader was disqualified by race officials because he had re-fuelled his bike in the sighting lap. This suddenly gave Brian Hsu fresh title hopes. The German-Taiwanese was riding like a man possessed in front of the 12,000 fans. He absolutely controlled both races. It wasn't bringing him the championship though, the young talent ended the Junior Cup in third place.
"The races were fun for sure. Holzgerlingen is a great track, just what I like. My bike was working well and there were no problems whatsoever. Too bad I missed the first round with an injury. Otherwise the title would have been more of a possibility."
