ROBINS number one Peter Kildemand has insisted he’s relaxed about missing out on a GP spot for next season, revealing he remains on course for his goal of making the series for 2016.
After scoring eight points from his first three rides in the GP Challenge in Lonigo on Saturday night, two exclusions cost the Dane his chance of a top three finish which would have earned him his spot at world level next year.
However, despite reaching two Grand Prix finals as a wild card this this, the Dane doesn’t expect to now be handed a pick by organisers BSI and, despite his disappointment at not qualifying, has revealed his original goal was always to make the series by 2016.
“I felt under control after my first three rides and I got away with eight points, which was very good, but it went wrong,” he said.
“I was chasing Bomber too hard when I crashed the first time, I tried to go round him and went wide where the track was a bit wet and I slipped away. It was a bit stupid really because I had more speed than him, but maybe I should have just taken the two points there.
“I need to learn, but in my last ride my seat bracket snapped so I couldn’t really hold the bike and I flipped it. It was unlucky really because I had eight from my first three and I felt really confident, but then everything went wrong.
“I don’t think I will get a wildcard but I feel alright about it, my personal goal was really to get into the GP for 2016 so I am still able to do that.
“I don’t feel too bad about it and I will have to keep on going.”
Matej Zagar, Jason Doyle and Chris Harris finished in the top three in Lonigo, with Maciej Janowski fourth.
