Roberto Rolfo hans Fortuna Honda first ever GP victory.

Sachsenring, July 27: Roberto Rolfo today gave his principle sponsor Fortuna and machine manufacturer Honda, who have helped push in the world championship his first victory of the season, after winning the German GP in majestic style. The victory was, however, not without a lot of hard work because the quality of the 29-lap race was exceptional. Rolfo knew how to defend his lead from the attacks of his rivals and rode a fantastic last lap to cross the line in the lead. The victory has brought him t just seven points of the lead in the championship.

"It is a great satisfaction to take this victory but it was very hard because all the riders raced hard from the very beginning without making any concessions to each other. The very fast rhythm of the race made me concentrate at maximum to avoid any errors that would condition my race, or penalise me t the end of the race." Explained the Fortuna Honda rider.

"I had to concentrate totally for the entire race distance racing in the group. It was very important not to make one single mistake, that's why I overtook Randy de Puniet with five laps to go because I thought it best to defend my lead from the attacks of my rivals and so it proved to be at the end of the race. This is the first victory of the season but in reality we can say, myself and the team, this is the point where the championship truly starts." Said the German 250cc GP winner.

"The job the team has done this weekend, and in general, has been fantastic, a constant progression that has permitted us to get the results we've had, and this victory which has finally arrived." Said an exalt ant Roberto. Who added. "From the very start of practice I knew I would be fighting for the win. I also knew it would be very hard but the reward of this victory is the best feeling of a successful weekend in Germany."

Dani Amatriain, Fortuna Honda Team Manager, was as excited as Rolfo at the end of the race. He said. "From my position I would like to thank Fortuna and Honda for their help and support of this project and, obviously, congratulate the everybody in the team. But above all to Roberto who showed his true pedigree and professionalism with a spectacular victory, he has taken a big step forward in his ever improving career."
