WSS News
Parkes looking to bounce back in Holland

Broc Parkes and the Ten Kate Racing Products World Supersport team are looking to bounce back at round three of the 2012 championship this weekend (20-22 April) at Assen in The Netherlands after the drama's of Imola.

Despite qualifying well at Imola, Parkes was forced out of the race after just five laps with a destroyed rear tyre. He was able to re-join the race and established a new lap record but, despite passing several riders, he could not finish in the points, let alone match his podium finish from the first round.

"We had a day's testing the day after the Imola race and everything went really well," the Australian lamented heading into the teams home race.

"It was our first real test of the year and we tried some things that you just don't have time to try during a race weekend. So it was good to get more time on the bike there and get something close to a base setting.

"The Assen test last week wasn't so good because the weather was mixed and cold, so we didn't get a whole lot more done. But Assen's been good to me in the past so I'm looking forward to racing there this weekend. After Imola, I need a solid result and a handful of points to get me back into the championship, but it's a long season, so I'll go into the weekend as relaxed as possible.

Team manager, Ronald ten Kate, said, "At Imola, we were at the front, just like we were in Phillip Island, but the race in Italy was ultimately very disappointing. The test on the following Monday confirmed that our direction was correct and Broc was able to go even faster and break the lap record again. At Assen last week, we were able to confirm a couple of things so were looking for more of the same this weekend and, as Broc says, we're aiming for a solid result."
