Schrötter collects points again

Marcel Schrötter was able to catch up some positions in the race and collected some important championship points today, after the less positive and difficult practice days of the Grand Prix of Aragón in Spain. Some may think the number 13 is an unlucky number, not for Schrötter, who finished 13th again today after achieving the same place in Mugello and Indianapolis three weeks ago. Also the Interwetten Honda 125 Team around the chief mechanic Sepp Schlögl deserved the result they worked for very hard this weekend and can look forward to continue in Japan, where the first race of three consecutive races will take place on 3rd of October.

Marcel Schrötter, 13 39'01.926:
"The race went well. I had a good start and was able to stay with the group in the beginning. I could catch up some positions and stayed in the slipstream, managed to get even closer to the group. After the really bad two practice days I am really happy with this result. I think I could have finished even further in front, if my starting position would have been better today."

Terrell Thien, Team Manager:
"Finally Marcel gained some points again in today's race. He was a real fighter today and already in the first couple of laps he was able to catch up, was tenth for a while. At the end he finished 13th and after those two bad days before I am really satisfied with this result."
