Salom and Parkes To Shoot For Podiums In France

Posted:

David Salom and Broc Parkes will be going all out for more podium success at the penultimate round of the 2011 World Superbike Championship this weekend at Magny Cours, France, with Salom still theoretically capable of being champion.

The arithmetic is working against Salom as he would have to take two wins and see championship leader Chaz Davies score only one point or less in the final two races for the Kawasaki man to take the crown.

Only Salom and current second place rider Fabien Foret can now overhaul Imola non-scorer Davies, with Foret 35 points behind the Yamaha rider. Salom is third placed with 120 points, and with two podiums to his credit. Wins in the remaining two rounds will now be the clear goal for Mallorcan rider.

"We had some issues on raceday at Imola but our lap times were good near the end," Salom said. "I think Magny Cours can be very good for Kawasaki and for me. Imola is a good circuit also but we had a few issues, Magny is always a good circuit or me; I like it and the bike should go well there. It possible to win and it is the only thing missing this year for me. I think both Broc and I can aim for the win and get two Kawasakis on the podium."

Salom's Provec Motocard.com team‰ÛÒmate Broc Parkes has had more podium success than Salom so far, with one win at Misano included in his four podium tally, but bad luck in a couple of races has held him back at key times and he is fourth overall, three points behind his Spanish team-mate.

"Getting a podium was a good result for us in Italy last week because it wasn't that easy in the race," Parkes said.

"For the next round the circuit is very different from Imola. I found Magny Cours good to me in 2010 and it is one of my favourite tracks. I rode the Kawasaki there last year and the bike worked well. Hopefully the weather will be good because you never know what you will get there this time of year. I think we need to concentrate on the bike set-up with a full fuel tank for this race," the Australian concluded.
