Former motorcycle Vice Champion of Poland is going to participate in the second round of the Polish championship combined with the European Alpe Adria Championship series. Paweł Górka is counting on his further success in the prestigious Superbike category on the Hungarian Pannonia-Ring racing track.
The thirty-eight year old resident of Nowy Sącz, the Superstock 1000 Vice Champion of the 2013 season, has moved to the most prestigious Superbike category in which he came fourth twice, just off the podium in the first races held at the Poznań track in early May this year.
This weekend, Polish motorcycle riders are facing the second racing weekend of this 2015 season, combined with the contest of the Alpe Adria European Championship. As many as forty-four contestants, including twelve from Poland, have registered for the competition on the Hungarian Pannonia-Ring track.
This year, Paweł Górka will participate in the full cycle of both WMMP and Alpe Adria series, representing the livery of a leading Czech team– BMW Motorrad Czech Republic. Paweł Górka is riding his tested motorbike BMW S1000RR of approx. 200 horse power and his goal is to strive for top positions, both in Poland and abroad.
“I’ve been trying to compete in the strongest Superbike category for some time now. It became possible this year thanks to starting cooperation with the official Czech BMW team. For the first time in my career I’m a part of a professional team which takes care of preparation of the motorcycle. I would like to use this situation and fight for top positions, both in the Polish Championships and in Alpe Adria Championship,” said Paweł Górka. “This coming weekend, we are going to witness fierce competition during the two races in Hungary mainly because there will be more than 40 contestants on the start line. Pannonia-Ring is a technically difficult track; however, I like it. When it is wet, it can be slippery in places, and it may rain this Saturday so it may be interesting,” he added.
Górka, the Polish Alpine ski champion in 2002–2003, started his motorcycle racing career with Supermoto races in which he came second in the Polish Cup in 2007. The next step was a change to a track racing bike on which he won the racing Polish Cup in 2008 and subsequently, he debuted in the Superstock 1000 category in which he raced successfully until the end of last year.
