KTM 1290 Superduke R #3
Nürburgring 2023

This year I was again on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife. Again with Doc Scholl and the ADAC. This time the conditions were incredibly bad. It rained a lot. On the first day there was heavy rain all morning and then in the afternoon it became dry and we did seven laps. On the second day there were continuous rain showers and it wasn't clear which sections of the track were wet and which were dry. I did one lap at lunchtime and was so unsure that I stopped riding straight away. So all in all there were only eight laps this year. Photos were taken again by PIXELrace.de.
