Meggle and Georgi run out winners at the Lausitzring

  • Matthias Meggle celebrates maiden win in Standard class
  • Dirk Geiger and Oliver König in battle royal for the podium
  • Start-to-finish victory for Tim Georgi in the GP class ahead of Ernst Dubbink and Maximilian Kofler


Klettwitz: The ADAC Northern Europe Cup (NEC) challengers staged an exciting race under cloudy skies at the Lausitzring. Both Matthias Meggle (15, GER) and Tim Georgi (15, GER) successfully converted their pole positions into race leads in the Standard and GP class respectively, going on to win an eventful fourth round.

Meggle immediately asserted himself at the front of the Standard class entrants but was under constant pressure from the pursuing pack, having to fend off regular attacks. Three laps from the end, the ADAC Sports Foundation protégé succeeded in pulling out a gap on second-placed Dirk Geiger (13, GER) to secure a maiden win in the competition.

Geiger, who is also sponsored by the ADAC Sports Foundation, fought off a late challenge for second place from Oliver König (14, CZE) who took the remaining podium spot. Toni Erhard (15, GER) came fourth, followed home by team-mate Kevin Orgis (16, GER) in fifth place.

In the GP class, Georgi was totally dominant. He led from start to finish and, over the race distance of twelve laps, built up a big lead. Ernst Dubbink (27, NED) was unable to match the pace of the Berliner and had to settle for the runner-up spot. Maximilian Kofler (15, AUT) finished third to claim his first podium appearance. Dennis Koopman (19, NED) took fourth place.

Meggle tops the Standard class championship table after the third race weekend. With this victory, he has increased his points tally to 81 after four races. König follows in second position on 66 points ahead of Geiger on 60. In the GP class, Dubbink is in the lead on 78 points with Georgi in hot pursuit on 75. Jason Dupasquier (14, SUI) is in third place on 52 points.

The fourth race fixture of the ADAC Northern Europe Cup will take place on the weekend of 15th to 17th July in the context of the World Motorcycle Championship at the Sachsenring.

Comments from the Top Three

Matthias Meggle (15, GER), winner, ADAC NEC Standard class:
“I got off to a good start in the race but was unable to keep up with the GP riders, which is what I had really wanted to do. They were already up and away on Lap 1 after the long straight. Philipp overtook me early on, but I was able to stick close behind him and size up the situation. Then I got past him again and tried to build up a lead, but that didn’t really work out. I kept making mistakes. On the last two laps, I tried to push really hard so that nobody would be able to overtake me. And I managed to do that. Now I’m extremely happy about my first victory of the year. A big ‘thank you’ to the Dynavolt Intact GP Junior Team.”

Dirk Geiger (13, GER), second, ADAC NEC Standard class:
“My race was actually quite good, although I had some problems with the front wheel. But I quickly managed to get that under control. Then I saw that the leading bunch with Matthias had opened up a gap, so I had to get past Oliver, which was really difficult. Then I tried to close the gap on the front-runners. And that worked. First of all I watched, and then I attacked. Second place is a great result. Many thanks to my Kiefer Racing Team for their hard work this weekend.”

Oliver König (14, CZE), third, ADAC NEC Standard class:
“I was battling hard at the first turn and went slightly wide, which cost me a lot of time. I was three seconds behind the leading group and then had to give it 100 percent for several laps to catch up to them up again. Then I had some problems on various corners, but I was able to consolidate my position on the last lap. I’m very happy to have secured another podium.”

Tim Georgi (15, GER), winner, ADAC NEC GP:
“At the start, I got off the line well and settled into the race. I was able to improve lap after lap, had a good rhythm, and I’m really pleased about that. It is never easy to stay fully focused, but that aspect worked out well. Because I’m unable to compete in every race this season, I barely look at the overall standings. I just try to put in as good a performance as I can in every race.”

Ernst Dubbink (27, NED), second, ADAC NEC GP:
“That was a difficult race. My start wasn’t bad, but Tim simply had the lead from the beginning. His lead gradually increased and was ultimately too great. I had a lonely race in second place, which was a bit difficult. I hope that, when we get to the Sachsenring, I can close the gap on Tim and that I can have some battles with him.”

Maximilian Kofler (15, AUT), third, ADAC NEC GP:
“My race went better than expected. After starting from P11, I finished sixth overall and third in the GP class. I was briefly behind Dennis but got past him and succeeded in securing my first podium. Up to 2016, I was just competing in Supermoto, so to finish on the podium here in only my third outing in this competition is a great achievement. I’m speechless.”
