Corser Looks to Strike Superbike Podium

WSBK Race Report

At Brno in 2009 Troy Corser took the factory BMW S1000RR SBK to a fifth place finish, but on Sunday at Valencia he not only scored a new best of fourth for the German factory, but he was also much closer to the win than at Brno last year.

Only 4.209 seconds separated Troy from eventual World Superbike victor Leon Haslam in Spain, and Troy was only 0.169 seconds from a historic podium finish.

The double SBK champion was understandably delighted to have scored so well, at what is one of his favourite circuits, especially as it is not one that has traditionally favoured the four-cylinder machines.

Troy Corser says: "The first race was great – just like it should always be! The bike had good grip, the traction control worked perfectly and the engine braking was spot on. I got a good start and went into the lead and I must say I felt pretty comfortable there. Even when Carlos came past, I knew I could just stay with him and watch what was going on."

"Everything was going good until I think I got a bit confused between the traction control and engine braking buttons and lost a little time and also third spot. But, it had been great to run at the front again and that’s how it should be."

World Superbike Championship Point Standing (after 3 Rounds of 13): 1. Haslam 123; 2. Biaggi 105; 3. Checa 80; 4. Haga 79; 5. Rea 60; 6. Toseland 50; 7. Guintoli 50; 8. Fabrizio 46; 9. Corser 46; 10. Crutchlow 41

Manufacturers standing: 1. Suzuki 123; 2. Ducati 107; 3. Aprilia 105; 4. Honda 61; 5. Yamaha 57; 6. BMW 47; 7. Kawasaki 13
