Luciano lays down a marker with Race 1 win at Assen

The Belgian bounces back with a victory, with Moor and Gurecky completing a podium of usual fast suspects 

Saturday, 14 August 2021

Lorenz Luciano (Junior Black Knights Team) was back on the top step in style at the TT Circuit Assen, the Belgian pulling away for a vital win in the standings and another victory in the Netherlands. Rossi Moor (FAIRIUM Next Generation Riders Team) and Jakub Gurecky (JRT Brno Circuit) completed the podium after a close fight for second, all taking vital points as the countdown to the finale continues… and Gurecky sets his sights on the Cup in Race 2.

Moor took the holeshot, but it didn’t take long for Luciano to take over in front. Moor wouldn’t go down without a fight though, and the two had Noel Willemsen (MCA Racing Team), Jacopo Hosciuc (Hos Racing Team) and points leader Gurecky for close company near the front of a huge group fight.

Bit by bit, however, Luciano was able to edge away, leaving Moor to battle it out with Hosciuc, Willemsen, Gurecky and Dustin Schneider (PrüstelGP Junior Team). And bit by bit thereafter, the fight for second became a three-way battle as Moor, Gurecky and Hosciuc pulled away. Schneider also crashed out.

As Luciano crossed the line in some clear air for another impressive win, the Geert Timmer chicane showdown between those on the chase saw Moor head in first and, somehow, the Hungarian defended it. He took second, with Gurecky able to close the door on an attack from Hosciuc to complete the podium, leaving the Romanian fourth.

Willemsen completed the top five ahead of another group led by Stepan Zuda (Motoracing23 Klub V ACR), with Kevin Farkas (Agria Racing Team), Jonas Kocourek (JRT Brno Circuit), Allesauto Racing’s Jordan Bartucca and Tibor Varga (Forty Racing) completing the top ten… although Kas Beekmans (Team KNMV) was within 0.034 in P11.

That’s it from Race 1, with Gurecky 44 points clear at the top. Can he take the Cup in Race 2? 51 points or more of advantage guarantees it…. so tune in for more at 15:20 (GMT +2) on Sunday!
