|It is “Race week” again and the International German Motorcycle Championship starts its second round next weekend. This time, for the first time this season, spectators will be able to cheer for the IDM starting field at the racetrack in Most in the Czech Republic. The riders of the EGS-alpha-Van Zon-BMW team are looking forward to it.
Championship leader Ilya Mikhalchik (UKR) will not be present at the next round, as he is part of Werner Daemen’s EWC team, the BMW Motorrad World Endurance Team, and will take part in the Le Mans 24-hour race of the World Endurance Championship. The remaining three riders Pepijn Bijsterbosch (NED), Tim Eby (GER) and Jan Mohr (AUT) will fight for more championship points for the Belgian team.
The racetrack in Most has been extensively renovated in the last few weeks for more than 15 million Czech crowns, as it is also the venue for the Superbike World Championship for the first time in August this year. Not only is an improved route waiting for the IDM riders, a new tarmac has also been put up and the run-off areas have been enlarged and renewed. The track now has a new FIM safety certificate, which also benefits the International German Championship. After the event at the Autodrom Most, the IDM will have a short summer break and will return on July 17th as part of the Truck GP at the Nürburgring in Germany.
The live stream of Radio Viktoria on the official channels of the championship (YouTube and Facebook) will report about the action from Most this weekend for all those who stay home again. Don’t miss to watch it!
