The Dark Dog Challenge for future stars gets underway in Germany

The Dark Dog Challenge, a competition aimed at finding and nuturing the future German stars of the MotoGP arena, got underway this weekend with the first round being held at the Eurospeedway Lausitz circuit. The winner of the first round of the ADAC and Honda backed competition, was 15 year-old Max Muller, who was joined on the podium by Oliver Skach (2nd) and Matti Seidel (3rd), both of whom are sixteen.

Muller, who started the race from pole, built up a lead over the first few laps and, after the fall of his main rival Stephen Ullrich, went on to win fairly comfortably after spending most of the race out on his own at the front. Amongst the other notable results from the meeting was the fourth place of Marco Eisman, who was making his debut at this level in the race, and the 9th and 14th respectively of Franz Dumke and Georg Fröhlich both of whom are just thirteen. Adi Staler, a former rider and one of the managers of the competition was delighted with first round. ´The competitors came from very different racing backgrounds and many were at very different levels of development, but this is what we will be trying to improve and evolve during this year´s competition´.
