PETRONAS Sprinta Racing rider Niki Tuuli makes his way to the Red Bull Ring raring to continue his positive momentum from Brno last weekend. The Finnish rider achieved his closest finish to the leaders at the Czech circuit, since making his debut in the Moto2 World Championship at Le Mans.
With the injury to his hand sustained in Assen improving every week, Tuuli is confident that he can now focus on continuing his progress on board the Kalex Moto2 machine. The 22-year-old will be looking to break into the top twenty at the Austrian circuit this weekend.
Surrounded by stunning Alpine terrain the spectacular Spielberg Red Bull Ring is a track renowned for its natural layout; Featuring ten turns sweeping throughout the slopes and an altitude difference of 65 metres, the Austrian Circuit guarantees close racing where gearing and bike set-up is crucial to performance.
#66 Niki Tuuli
“I’m really looking forward to this weekend because now I finally have one race behind me after my accident in Assen. I have a really good feeling after Brno even though the race result wasn’t what I wanted but anyway I need to focus on the right things and continue to improve; I need to take one step closer to the front. I know we can do a good job this weekend. I just need to work hard, push and we will see on Sunday where it ends.”
