Nick Kalinin becomes Champion of Ukraine in Supersport 600 with a new track record

On September 23rd , at the fifth stage of the Ukrainian Motorcycle Championship in Kiev, Nick Kalinin had a confident victory in the Supersport 600 class and once again converted his skills into a champion title. In addition, the 19-year-old representative of the team "M29" set a new record for the track "Chaika" on a 600cc bike in the final weekend, improving his previous achievement by more than half a second.

The fight for the title was saved until the last, due to Nick not being able to finish the first race of the season and losing 25 points from the start, for technical reasons. To win the championship Kalinin needed to win the remaining four starts, which he did.

Nick Kalinin # 22: "I am very pleased with the victory in the championship and I am glad that I was able to accelerate and update the best lap time on a 600-cc bike. I always considered the Ukrainian championship as a test of what I do every day, but without excessive pressure; and despite the more training aspect, these competitions are very important for me, as I ride in front of my native stands, a large number of fans comes to “Chaika” for a spectacular fight, and of course, I want to bring victory to my team.
If the first stage turned out to be crumpled for me because of the constant problems with the motorcycle, the final was perfect. Pole, the lead after the start, good fight with more powerful 1000-cube motorcycles and a victory in the championship. I hope that the audience enjoyed our show on the track.
On Wednesday I'm going to the final stage of the World Championship in France, so the intense racing schedule continues. Now all thoughts are about the upcoming race. "

The finale of the World Championship with Nick Kalinin will take place on September 30th in France at the track Magny-Cours.
