Luca Grunwald #43 – Moto3 GP Racer —

12 Nov

Back in 2009/10 or thereabouts I was considering moving full time to Croatia and spent the best part of a year down there sussing things out —

During my time in Croatia the old GP circuit of Grobnik was a place I got to know quite well —

I happened to be there one quiet weekday and spotted this young lad with his dad – down from Germany where he had won a Junior Championship – getting some warm weather practise in on his 125cc machine —

I was impressed with the way he was riding and to be honest the fresh faced kid didn’t even look to be the 15 years old he claimed. Later a chat in the pits with him left me favourably impressed and I have often wondered how his career progressed. Having stumbled across his old postcard/pic in my gallery this morning a quick google of Luca Grunwald confirmed my earlier impressions. The lad had gone on to win several German and European Championships and even made it all the way to Moto 3 GP’s. Good on you Luca – you even suit that beard you are sporting in your latest video —
