It was a full house at Albacete this weekend 23rd March for the opening races in the Spanish National Championships Racing Calender.
The Hot FM CRT Racing Team led by David Slader on his BMW S1000RR lined up on the grid on Sunday the weather was sunny but with cold winds really quite perfect conditions.
David was quick off the line and within 2 laps was up to 5th place having started 9th out of a field of 27.This was David's first race in 6 years and taking into account his lack of track time on a new bike and level of fitness the final results of the race were impressive.
David came 1st in his class Motodes Open 1000cc and 6th overall in the General Manchego/valenciano Extreme 1000cc.
David was racing on Dunlop road tire's, while the teams in front were on slicks which are worth at least a second a lap, at the next outing in May David will be on slicks also and we all expect he will achieve a podium.
