MEKLAU TAKES RIJEKA SUPERBIKE VICTORY


MEKLAU TAKES RIJEKA SUPERBIKE VICTORY


Team Suzuki Press Office – August 21.

GRANDys duo Suzuki’s Andy Meklau took a step closer to clinching the Alpe Adria Superbike series with a second race victory at the weekend’s Rijeka circuit in Croatia.


In Saturday’s opening race, Meklau was second ahead of GSX-R1000-mounted team-mate Marko Jerman, who was struggling with a collarbone injury, but in Sunday’s second race, the Austrian (pictured) made a pass on leader Berto Camlek (Yamaha) on the final lap to win 0.3-of-a-second, with Jerman again third.

Meklau heads the championship standings on 169 points with Jerman second on 141 with one round to go at Slovakiaring.

In the Superstock 600 class, series leader Daniel Bukowski led Saturday’s opening race aboard the team’s GSX-R600, but crashed, eventually re-mounting to finish sixth. And in Sunday’s race, he rode a calculated race to finish in third.

Said GRANDys duo Team Manager Jacek Grandys: “Our start in Croatia was very successful. I felt sorry for Daniel in the first race because he could have wrapped-up the title this weekend. The situation in the championship classification is still good though and we are waiting for the last weekend of the season now at the Slovakiaring.

“In the Superbike class, it seems that the title will come to one of our riders, but after this weekend, Marko deserves full recognition for his efforts because despite injury he fought bravely with the other competitors.”
