"As expected we were able to up the pace today with a new set of tires. It was not cooler as we thought it could be, it was even more hot than yesterday afternoon. But sill I was able to shave of almost one second, so that's good. Its all looking very promising for tomorrows race and we will give our all to better the position were are holding now even further.”

Lukas Pesek


"Today has been a good session, as we all were able to get quicker and we had planned that yesterday already. I am happy with the bike and also my team mates are quick. I think we can aim high tomorrow. It will be a long 8 hours considering the temperatures here – not only for us riders, but also for our BMW S 1000 RR baby."

Matthieu Lussiana


"I am happy with today’s improvement and our final starting position doesn’t look too bad. It is very hot here in Germany, but I am used to race in such conditions, not at least from my time in the Brazilian Superbike Championship. I am looking forward to tomorrow and we will push as hard as we can, to get a strong result ."


Rico Penzkofer

Team Principal

"It’s all running according to plan. First of all we have to thank Pirelli for supplying us with some new spec tires which are working very good – and the improvement of around one second by each rider shows that. We are set for tomorrow’s home race of our team and we will give our all, to do our fans proud!
