Aussie Jed Metcher on the podium at Zolder IDM

Posted:

Team Suzuki Mayer's Jed Metcher raced to a podium position in the Supersport class at the second round of the German IDM Championship at Zolder in Belgium at the weekend.

After running off the track in Saturday's rain-lashed opening race, the Australian re-joined to finish ninth. But in Sunday's second race, he put his GSX-R600 onto the second step of the podium after carving through from a 10th on the grid. Because race winner and guest rider Wim van den Broeck (Yamaha) was not eligible for IDM series points, this gave Metcher a winning 25-point score that elevated him from 10th to sixth in the series.

"At first I didn't realise I'd scored top points for the second race until I got on the podium," Metcher explained. "During the first laps I saved my new Pirelli tyres and didn't get to the limit. The track was partly dry, but still wet in some sections. When Wim van den Broeck got in front of me, I knew I had to do something but I couldn't pass him as it was risky, but at least my lap times where faster than his."
