Team Traction Control heads to Holland, with James Rispoli looking for some fast times
As the 2014 Motorpoint Insurance BSB series momentarily leaves Blighty and prepares for its race at the world famous Assen TT track, Team Traction Control eagerly anticipates some high-speed action.
The 2.8-mile circuit is fast, it’s blessed with a great mix of high-speed corners – and a few slower ones, just to keep the riders on their toes – which means a quick average speed. And that’s promising for TTC.
“I am really looking forward to Assen… It looks like an amazingly fast track which we like,” says James Rispoli. “After coming off a hard week training in Spain, I feel ready to fight,” he continues.
Getting down to business
It’s a great circuit – known as ‘The Cathedral’ – exciting for the fans who we expect will be there in number, and a venue where the whole TTC crew are looking forward to making their debut. But there’s no time for being tourists. It’s down to business…
“The biggest goal for us is to have a smooth weekend to keep building,” says Rispoli. “We need to make the most of our 30-minute sessions as it will be our first time there.”
For TTC it’s been a manic few weeks since Donington Park, as the team has been busy relocating to its new base, which is all part of planning for next season and the years beyond that.
As well as that, the Yamaha R6 has had a engine change along with all new wiring. And with Rispoli having been away training, the team is all together and raring to get back racing!
