Jacobsen targets WorldSSP podium finish at Donington Park
PJ Jacobsen is on his way to Donington Park Circuit, where he will contest the seventh round of the 2016 FIM Supersport World Championship this weekend.

After missing out on a podium finish two Sundays ago at Sepang, following an incredible comeback that brought him close to the leading pack with one lap to go, Jacobsen is now looking forward to racing his Honda in front of the British crowd.

"I‰Ûªm looking forward to racing at Donington Park, it‰Ûªs a circuit I really love and I‰Ûªm quite sure we‰Ûªll be able to be competitive with the Honda CBR600RR," Jacobsen said.

"A good set-up is crucial for this track and surely the weather will be a big factor. We will go for a good result whether it‰Ûªll be dry or wet. It‰Ûªs time to return to podium ways and hopefully get that win that we have been looking for since the start of the season."

Last year Jacobsen was fifth at the finish at Donington in what was his last round on different machinery before the switch to the Ten Kate-prepared Honda CBR600RR, on which he challenged for the World Supesport title up to the last race of 2015. The 22-year-old from Montgomery, New York, currently sits fifth in the Championship standings, 40 points shy of leader Sofuoglu but only 11 away from third.
