BMW and Corser have reason to celebrate at San Marino

Posted:

After Saturday's first ever pole position in the team's young history, Troy Corser secured the German team its second podium on Sunday at the Superbike World Championship in San Marino, finishing race 1 in third.

It was Troy's 130th podium finish, and his 50th third place finish in his World Superbike career. In race 2, the Australian veteran was not able to hold on to his starting position.

Corser was in the top five until the final lap when he missed a gear when downshifting before Tramonto corner. He ran off the track and lost a couple of positions.

"I am really happy with the way this weekend has gone," Corser said. "It has been our team's best performance so far, with our first ever pole position and a podium finish in race 1. But at the same time I am also a little disappointed because I felt we had the pace to win both races today.

"In the first race I felt comfortable leading the race, and had it not been for a mistake towards the end of the race I think I would have finished second or even first. It was just a case of trying a little too hard. In race 2 we made some slight changes to the setup to give more grip to the rear wheel, but this meant we lost some feeling from the front tyre and this affected the handling of the bike. Unfortunately at the end of the race I hit a false neutral on the down change before Tramonto which meant I missed my brake point, forcing me into the gravel," Corser concluded.
