Bartols high hopes for KTM in Donington races

After seeing Mika Kallio qualify in fifth place in the 250cc category and Tomoyoshi Koyama secure a third place grid position in the 125cc class, Red Bull KTM boss Harold Bartol was in a positive mood about his riders chances in the eighth round of the season.

Bartol has high hopes for his two teams of riders at the Nickel & Dime British Grand Prix and reflected on the good results KTM have achieved at Donington in the past.

The Austrian racing manager commented: We always have quite good results here, I think back to Julian (Simon) with a first win on the 125cc and our first run on a 250 with a second place for Anthony (West). The circuit seems to fitting to our riders and bikes so we will see whats happening.

Despite Randy Krummenachers 11th place qualifying result Bartol singled him out as one to watch in the 125cc race, noting: Krummenacher was here for the first time last year as a wildcard and he did not too bad, he likes the circuit so I think we could expect quite a good race for him.
