Pelikanova returns to the Supersport 300 World Championship after a summer break
Alexandra Pelikanova returns to the Supersport 300 World Championship after almost two months of summer break. Czech motorcycle rider will take a part in the upcoming race weekend in Portimao where the WorldSBK round is scheduled.
A 19-year-old native from Brno spent a summer break between race weekends by physical training and testing of her motorcycle. However, she also spent part of the summer months by recovering from injuries caused by crashes during seasonal tests.
„I focused mainly on motorcycle training during the summer break. I even spent two days at the French circuit in Magny-Cours to be ready for the upcoming race weekend at the end of September,“ Pelikánová said before the upcoming race weekend in Portimao, Portugal. „I had a two-day test in Portimao with the team. Unfortunately, the test was unsuccessful for us. I had contacts with other riders during both days that led to unpleasant crashes. After the first crash, when I was knocked down by another rider, I had a memory loss and a big headache. And then I hit my leg in the second crash. Fortunately, I had two weeks to recover, and now I can fully concentrate on the race weekend. I would like to thank my partners, especially DG Corse, who, after my crash in Magny-Cours when I destroyed my Shoei helmet, immediatelly delivered a new model, and PSI Hubík, whose durable leather suit equipped with an airbag prevented me from causing serious injury,“ Pelikánová continued. The upcoming race weekend will be the seventh round for the Kawasaki GP Project female rider in her premiere season in the Supersport 300 World Championship.
The race weekend in Portimao, Portugal, will take place from September 6th to 8th, 2019. On Friday, there are free practices scheduled, with the last free practice and Superpole followed by Last Chance Race on Saturday. The main race of Supersport 300 category is scheduled for Sunday at 16:15 CET.
