Technical Czech track in Most the next challenge for Ten Kate Racing

The eighth round of the FIM Supersport World Championship will be held at the Autodrom Most in the Czech Republic this weekend. It is the last race weekend before the summer break in which Ten Kate Racing will do everything possible to continue the current momentum.

The Autodrom Most in the Czech Republic has been on the World Superbike calendar since 2021. The circuit, located some 20 kilometres from the German border and 100 kilometres from the capital Prague, is 4.2 kilometres long and has no fewer than 21 corners. Despite a relatively long straight, it is a highly technical circuit with flowing corners that merge into each other.

After his double victory in Imola, Stefano Manzi is in top form and the aim this weekend in Most will therefore be to further reduce his gap to the leader in the championship. Jorge Navarro achieved his best result so far at the Italian circuit in Race 2, making it the target for the Spaniard to get even closer to the top of the World Supersport class this weekend.

Stefano Manzi: “Last year was my first time at Most and I enjoyed riding around that circuit. I’ll try to do the same thing this year and then, together with the team, work on improving the bike and our pace. Like always I will give it everything so I hope we will be able to perform like we have done in the past couple of rounds.”

Jorge Navarro: “I am looking forward to discover another new track this weekend. I have been watching a lot of on board videos of Most and I think it is a very nice track. We will start the weekend like we have done in the previous rounds, trying to improve our performance and arrive ready for the races on Saturday and Sunday in the best way we can.”

Kervin Bos – Ten Kate Racing team manager: “The Autodrom Most is the next race weekend that awaits us and in recent years we have experienced a few things there. The whole team is looking forward to racing there again and it is the last weekend before the summer break.

Stefano is currently in top form after his double in Imola and we hope to continue that line this weekend. It will be two very important races that determine how you feel going into the summer break. I think the momentum is on our side at the moment so we definitely want to maintain that.

Jorge had his best Sunday of the year in Imola and this weekend is another new circuit for him. Friday and perhaps Saturday will therefore be tough for him but we hope to continue his positive development. Slowly but surely his true potential is emerging and we will work hard on that again this weekend.”

The race weekend at the Autodrom Most starts on Friday with two free practice sessions, followed by the Superpole session on Saturday morning at 10:25am. Race 1 kicks off Saturday afternoon at 15:15 with Race 2 Sunday afternoon at 12:30.
