GP of Germany - race: crash for Corsi

It's been an unlucky weekend for Team JiR at the Sachsenring circuit, where Simone Corsi crashed out of third position with 10 laps to go, while just behind eventual race winner Toni Elias. The weekend had a good start thanks to some competitive times during practice and qualifying. A good start for the Roman brought him close to leaders, until Elias overtook Simone for third. The two then rode together and began to close on Gabor Talmacsi's second position thank to a good rhythm. Suddenly, a too fast entry into a corner puts Corsi in off- line, where a little bump in the track surface makes him lose the front-end, sending him out of the race. A sad end for the rider who showed the improvements he made from the tests at Aragon.

TSR's development rider Yusuke Teshima ended up in 19th position, continuing his apprenticeship in World Championship racing and - most of all - to the fine tuning of the two MotoBI machines.

Moto2 takes now a break, as the next race in Laguna Seca will be run only with the MotoGP class. This will give the chance to the Team for a further development and fine tuning of the machines for the second part of the Championship.
