IRRC – Frohburg, Germany Road Race confirmed in September with Michael Dunlop

It looks like the Macau GP is finally happening for me. I will also race in another Road Race this September in Germany. This one is in Frohburg and part of the IRRC Series. I will be on a BMW with Penz13 again and this time my team mate will be Michael Dunlop.

It should be an awesome event!

17th Overall In Coca Cola Zero Suzuka 8 Hour in Japan

I had a very high speed crash at the 130R turn followed up with a raceday warm up crash. With a damaged hand, ribs, and a long list of other body parts, the team did a great job in getting the bike home in 17th overall in a very dramatic 8 Hour. Torrential rain, sun, and plenty of crashes all in the scorching heat. it was a race to remember but I am looking forward to being back in 2015 and we are confident we can get a top 10 finish.

2 Podiums puts KRUGER back in the Championship Chase-CHINA SUPERBIKE SERIES


Dan China race June 2014

Straight off a flight from The Isle of Man and back on his Kawasaki ZX-10R Superbike in China, Dan Kruger was back to short circuit racing this past weekend. It was typical summer weather in Zhuhai, a mix of rain and sun, and very hot and humid. This would be the first time Kruger would ride his 2014 Kawasaki ZX-10R.

A two-day test would lead immediately into qualifying and back-to-back races. The Monday following the race weekend was also an official test where the team would be trying K-Tech suspension for the first time. Ken Summerton is the Technical Director from K-Tech in the UK, and Kelvin Reilly is the Australian K-Tech distributor, and both would be on hand for the Monday test to assist in getting all the settings right.

“It was nice getting back to China and into my comfort zone,” said Kruger after the weekend. “The last six weeks have been intense with the North West 200, the Isle of Man TT, and losing my teammate, Simon Andrews. I love being in the heat so the weather here helped me unthaw from the crazy weather in Europe we had.”

Kruger topped practice and went on to qualify third. Race 1 would see Australian Superbike regular Benjamin Burke take the win over Yes Yamaha rider Huang Shi-Zhao. Kruger was never really in contention for the win and settled in for a steady third and yet another podium. The second race was a much better fight. Kruger’s new launch control was working great and the three riders swapped the lead and kept in close proximity for the first half of the race. On the last lap, Zhao and Ben came together and Zhao crashed out, giving Ben top honour and Krugera not too distant second. Kruger was later penalized 30 seconds for a jump start, which dropped him down to third, but with Zhao crashing out, Kruger was back in the Championship hunt.

Dan and the team would like to thanks all their sponsors including Titanic Kawasaki, Motul, Pirelli, Hindle, Vemar, Spidi, RK, Moto-tron, SBS,, Team JP/Dogfight, UPG, OZ, and Nature Power

Canadian racer Dan Kruger withdraws from the 2014 Tourist Trophy Races at the Isle of Man out of respect of his late team mate Simon Andrews.
Kruger had to face a couple of things during those TT fortnight. Only one week before he was at Simon’s side when he passed away after his bad crash at the NorthWest 200.
Kruger took on the Isle of Man practices as Newcomer but was affected by bad weather and only a few laps. Furthermore the Canadian didn’t get his head free into racing. During yesterday’s, Thursday, final practice session, Kruger rode his last practice lap of the TT 2014 and withdraws from today’s Highlight race, the Senior TT over six laps.
Dan Kruger:
“It’s a hard time for all of us and first of all I want to thank my BMW Racing Team. They supported me in every aspect and never put pressure on me. We discussed my decision all together and everyone understood me. This year I just don’t get my head free and I only had too few laps round here. Wherever you look in the paddock, Simon is there and I withdraw from the race also out of respect for him and his family. At the TT 2015 I will give it another try to tackle the Mountain Course.”

RIP Simon Andrews 14/12/84 – 19/05/14


Well what can I say, I am gutted that you are not with me here to show me around the TT. I know you will coach me from above but I really do miss you mate. You were on the gas when you left us which is the only way you would have had it. I was fortunate to have you as a team mate and even more so as a friend. Your mom and dad, sister, Lisa, Breakers… you are loved by so many. I don’t know why we had to lose you and it really makes me wonder why we do what we do. You put me onto some great music and I am afraid we will need to put off our Ibiza trip. You brought me and Breakers together and we will continue to celebrate your life every chance we get. I know you would tell me to take on the TT and that is the plan. It goes without saying that every time I get on a motorbike, you will be in my thoughts and I am counting on you to watch over me.
Rest in Peace mate…
