German Juergen Oelschlaeger Looking For Daytona Supersport Ride

German racer Juergen Oelschlaeger, 29, is looking for a Supersport ride at Daytona, 2001. Oelschlaeger was runner-up in the 1999 German National Championship 600cc Supersport class on a Suzuki, and in the 2000 season ran the Superbike World Championship on a Yamaha YZF-R7 with Alpha Technik Yamaha. His best World Superbike results were a 9th and a 12th in the two races at Assen, Holland.

For the 2001 season, Oelschlaeger is contracted to Suzuki Germany and Michelin to run the German Championship, a few European Championship rounds and the two World Championship rounds held in Germany with Steinhausen Racing, a team owned by former Sidecar World Champion Rolf Steinhausen. The team plans to contest the 2002 Supersport World Championship with Oelschlaeger.

Oelschlaeger raced at Daytona in 1995 and finished 10th in the 250cc Grand Prix race. He hopes to compete again at Daytona this coming March and brings support from Michelin Germany (in the form of tires) with him.

Oelschlaeger can be contacted via e-mail at, via phone at 011-49-8656-7410, and via FAX at 011-49-8656-98-5645.
