REV’IT! Rider Filip Salac

Looking Back, Looking Ahead

The motorsport season is now in full swing, but we’d still like to take a moment to look back at 2020, and even more so, to look ahead to the goals of 2021. This season has already been an interesting one for REV’IT! Rider, Filip Salac. And after a well-deserved summer break, Filip returns to a new team, CarXpert PrüstelGP, and continues the battle on the track for points and top podium positions. Let’s get to know him a little bit more.

Filip Salac certainly had a challenging season. But as the only Czech rider in the MotoGP championship, he had the whole country rooting for him. The struggles were there. He showed solid progress despite not being able to compete in the last two races of the season after the crash in FP1 of the Valencia race. Nothing prevented Filip from giving it all. And he has so much more to give.

Looking Back

Filip says, “It was a crazy season. I got a lot of new experiences, but the season did not go as I wanted it to go. The first race was amazing, but then we had some problems with the settings of the bike, and we were struggling a lot. In the last part of the season, we were able to make some improvements. At the second round of Valencia, I had a massive crash and unfortunately had to miss out on the last race in Portimão. Last season I finished a bit earlier for me and I wasn’t happy about it at all.”

Ups and downs. Even when things are not going according to plan, there are always moments that will last a lifetime. “My most memorable moment this season was in Qatar was when I won the test,” Filip remembers. “I went to Qatar with the goal to win. I did win and it gave me a lot of confidence in myself. This was one of the best things I ever did in the Moto3 career.” Thus far.

Looking Ahead

Filip continues, “For this season, my goal is to be on the podium. Of course, this is always the goal. Next year I believe that it will happen. Besides that, I hope to have a stable rest of the season where the CarXpert PrüstelGP Team and I can make a lot of progress together.

“I am currently doing a lot of MX practice. I build my own motocross track at my house in Czech Republic, so I am training here a lot. In the beginning of January, I would like to go to Valencia to stay with my team, train with my Supermoto 600 and to prepare as much as possible.”
