After the successes of the 2018 racing season, DERWID supports Peter Rohr – the current World fastest Handicap-Racer – in achieving his dream also for the next season. We will be on track together again for the International Bridgestone Handy Race 2019.
Peter Rohr: World fastest Handicap Racer 2018
In 2018 Peter Rohr fulfilled his dream. After the motorcycle accident of 2015, where he lost the use of his left arm, he worked hard to get back on the motorcycle and at the end of a successful racing season, he won the title as World fastest Handicap Racer.
Crowning his achievements and commitment, early this year he was voted Man of the Year of the Villach Region for the Austrian newspaper Kleine Zeitung.
We are proud and very happy to be on track together also this year. We share with him the belief that adversities are a chance and from every situation there’s a way out.
What to expect from this 2019 season?
For sure passion and great emotions. Peter has continued his trainings, also off the track, to prepare for the races and reach his goal for 2019: defending the World title.
We look forward to seeing you on the track, Peter!
