PETRONAS Sprinta Racing riders Adam Norrodin and Ayumu Sasaki will contest the German Grand Prix this weekend, aiming to finish the first half of the season on a high.

#7 ADAM NORRODIN
“I’ve spent the last week working and training with my crew chief in France and I feel a lot better prepared for the weekend ahead. We have been able to discuss many things and this has helped me to understand the mistakes that I have been making, how I can learn from them and what I can do to move forward. After the last race in Assen I was so disappointed, so I must do better at Sachsenring.
I like this track in Germany; its’ quite complicated and normally this wouldn’t compliment my style so much, but last year our pace was quite good and we finished the race 13th, so I feel confident that I can do better this time. We have a good strategy for this weekend, so I’m looking forward to getting there. I have everything I need to make a good result; I just need to stay focussed and work hard.”
#71 AYUMU SASAKI
“I’m really excited for the German Grand Prix. Assen was a tough weekend for us but I am learning more and more every time. I understand now the importance of going into a race weekend with the right mentality from the very first session. This has certainly been affecting our progress but I have learned this the hard way and now I know that I must make a change.
Moving forward I know what the issue is that has caused me to have difficult last four races, so I just need to stop talking about it and do it! Right now, my focus is completely on starting well and making a good FP1, which I can build on from there. I like the Sachsenring track, so I really hope to do well at this last race before the summer break.”
