This is the first of 5 series of the National Superbike Championship 2009. It was 2 days event; Saturday 28 February 2009 for Free Practice and QTT and Sunday 01 March 2009 for the Warm up and the Race.
Saturday, 28 February 2009: FP & QTT Day
Sunday, 01 March 2009: Race Day
It was quite crowded with 28 starters since the start was mixed with the Super Sport class where all pro racers participated as well.
Ducati community was represented by Dondy riding Ducati Superbike 999 and me riding Ducati 1098s. We know it is going to be too difficult to win against the pro or more experienced racers, but we definitely got 2 umbrella girls each. Hahahaha… 😀
I was traped in the midle of the crowd. Start and get away from the crowd is always a scary moment in the race. The distance between a rider and the other riders is too close and any thing could be happen in such tight formation in a high speed.
It was pitty that both Dondy and I got some technical problem and had to returned to the Pit before finish. But that is allright. I was a good experience anyway for us. Hendriansyah won the race with new national lap record 1:33.703. Wow… 🙂
