The MTP Racing squad concluded recently their pre-IRRC season preparations, gaining hugely valuable mileage at the Croatian Automotodrom Grobnik circuit.
Switching between his IRRC, TT mounts, David Datzer showed excellent pace throughout.
Victorious in the final 1000cc race, Datzer racing the TT bound Penz 13 BMW which was carrying a full tank of fuel, 23 litres, set a best lap time of 1 minute 28.787 seconds.
Alongside team-mate Johannes Schwimmbeck, Germany’s only current solo TT Races representative also claimed overall Endurance race spoils.
Fellow countryman Schwimmbeck, bagged third place finishes from the 1000cc races and also for the first time, dipped under 1 minute 30 seconds around Automotodrom Grobnik.
Like Datzer, he’s going into the near approaching IRRC season, in strong, solid form and he’s not be discounted from gaining next week, a notable finish or two at Hengelo.
