Hinterreiter victorious in BMW Boxer Cup

Thomas Hinterreiter claimed victory in the third round of the BMW Boxer Cup which took place at the Circuit de Catalunya. It was a hard-fought race, and for the opening seven laps the leadership changed hands frequently. Barth, Panichi, Mertens and Hinterreiter all spent time at the head of the field, in a lead group of six riders.

The fall of Barth splintered the group, and it was Hinterreiter who moved out in front, whilst behind the Austrian, a fight for second place developed. In the end Mertens prevailed from Mamola, Fuchs and Hoffmann. Morrison came home sixth, ahead of Jorge Martinez ´Aspar´.

At the moment, each of the rounds has featured a different winner. Barth won at Donington, Panichi at Mugello and now Hinterreiter here in Catalunya.
