The race was not easy, it seemed to me that it was very long and exhausting. I did not try to ride on the limit, I saved my strength, but still there were a few dangerous moments, especially at the beginning, when I braked almost into a bump and gave one position to a Superbike driver.
After the injury I need to recruit racing practice and the championship of Ukraine suits me perfectly. Thanks to the organizers and my team "M29" for their work and support. Now I am already mentally in Italy, where the last race of the World Supersport 300 World Championship will take place before the summer break. I know the track Misano, but for most of the riders of the championship it's a home track. Even the pilots from Asia train a lot there. But I have a goal, and I will fight for the best result. "

Pilot of the Italian team "GP Project" Nick Kalinin returned to the track and completed the weekend of the world championship by fighting for the podium on the track of Brno.

Nick Kalinin # 22: "I am very happy to be back in the fight and bring important points for my team. Despite the fact that my leg has not recovered 100% I was ready to fight for the podium. Thats why the 6th place in the race for me is just a good result.

In my championship class the most important fight remains on the last lap. For myself I had defined places where I could pass riders and so did not risk without necessity before the last lap. Unfortunately, this time the fall of other drivers did not allow us to have a nice outcome of the race. On the other hand, it is important that I was able to return to the track already for this weekend and feel the strength to fight again."
