The GP paddock had a new American in the paddock this weekend as eighteen year old, Darian Sanayei got the opportunity to ride the EMX250 class for Dixon Racing Team.

Darian had a good weekend as he won the first moto and followed that up with a twelfth which meant he finished fourth overall. Gatedrop caught up with Darian to get his thoughts on being in the GP paddock, we have the feeling it won’t be the last time we will see him in the paddock!

Gatedrop: Whats it like to be in the GP paddock and what’s your first impressions?

Darian Sanayei: Yeah, it’s pretty cool being over here and being in the UK. I have been here this week so far and had Eric from Monster come over with me. We have been having a good time hanging out in London and stuff, I’m liking the track and was glad to take the win in the first moto.

Gatedrop: How did the opportunity to come and ride this weekend come about?

Darian Sanayei: Eric from Monster, he mentioned it to me and my Dad and I thought it would be pretty cool to do. I think its opening a new door and a new opportunity for me so I now have another path I could choose to go down so hopefully everything goes good.

Gatedrop: Initially you were supposed to ride MX2 but you are riding EMX250 instead, what’s the reasoning behind that?

Darian Sanayei: Yeah, cause if I decide to go back to the United States I wouldn’t be able to ride the amateur class back there. I am amateur A and I have a couple of races to finish over there, if I raced MX2 this weekend then I would lose it over there so I wanted to just keep my options available before I make a final decision.

Gatedrop: What’s the first impressions on the bike?

Darian Sanayei: Yeah, I haven’t got much time to test on it but we rode a couple of days this week but I love it. The bike is really fast and I like it.

Gatedrop: Now that you are here and have seen the GP set up, are you impressed?

Darian Sanayei: Yeah, it’s a little bit different from the US but I mean everywhere you go the guys are fast, the top guys everywhere are always fast at the front.

Gatedrop: Your speed as always been similar to Covington so you have an idea of how you could do in MX2..

Darian Sanayei: With lap times and stuff yeah, Covington’s are just a little bit faster than mine are but I think if I had more testing then I think I would be up there with him and Thomas is a good rider.

Gatedrop: Do you think you will be back before the end of the season again, will we maybe see you in France?

Darian Sanayei: I’m not sure yet, I still have to make that decision after this weekend. There is a possibility you will see me next season.

Gatedrop: Have you been following mxgp this year at all?

Darian Sanayei: Before Monster mentioned it to me before coming into here then I hadn’t even watched an MXGP. When Monster told me about the opportunity I could have then I started to pay a little bit more attention and stuff, I definitely will now.

Gatedrop: Are you surprised that RV wasn’t getting it all his own way at the start of the season?

Darian Sanayei: Yeah, I mean, Villopoto is a legend, he’s so fast but yeah the way the racing style is and everything, it’s quite a bit different. I think he is really fast and if he had a little more time here then he would probably be out in front. If you look at the 450 class, the top twenty guys are only separated by like a second in the lap times so it’s close.

Gatedrop: What are your plans for the rest of the season?

Drarian Sanayei: The rest of the season is still undecided, I could be finishing out the season here or going back to the States and finish with what I was going on with there.
