Danish Alex Schacht Sets New 600Cc Lap Record At Anderstorp

Recommended Posts

Alex Schacht, an up-and-coming 16-year danish rider, as set a new lap record for the 600cc class at the Scandinavian Raceway Anderstorp track, in the beginning of May.


Schacht set the new class record - 1:35.60 - on course to winning the second race of the Swedish Championship Round held at Anderstorp, despite visiting the track for the first time that weekend.

It is an improvement of approximately 1 second over the old record.


Even more stupifying was Schacht's win in the first race - a wet race: he was lapping aproximately 8 seconds faster than the local Swedes, and by the end of the 11-lap race, he was a staggering 1m02s ahead of number two!

As a comparison, the ultimate laprecord for motorcycles was set by Wayne Rainey in the final GP500 race held at Anderstorp in 1990, which reads 1:31.107.


I saw Schacht race in the end of May at Anderstorp (as part of my own 3-day session there) against other danish riders, and while he was "only" doing 1:36 laps, he was lapping a full second quicker than number two, and three seconds quicker than the winner of the German Yamaha R6-Cup in 2007, Thomas Rebien.


If he keeps up like this, we should bee him compete at the world championship level in a couple of years.
