Jerez de la Frontera welcomed the junior riders last weekend for the fifth round of the European Talent Cup 2018.
The rider of the IntAct Battery Power MAS team, Dirk Geiger, convinced again with great progress on the Andalusian track. In qualifying, he took 21st place after undercutting his lap time by 1.5 seconds. The 15-year-old, however, had to accept a penalty of 12 grid positions for the first race on Sunday after exceeding the track limit several times during practice.
Despite this, the young man from Mannheim was able to make up for lost places in both races. He finished race one after starting from 33rd in the fabulous 14th place. In the second race he finished as impressive eleventh. At the end he could be happy about 2 and 5 points on his total account.
In two weeks the ambitious youngster can attack again. On 14th October the penultimate race of the season of the European Talent Cup will take place in Albacete, Spain.
