Corser believes a BMW podium is possible this season

1 of 1

Following BMW’s impressive turnaround and strong results at the last round of the World Superbike Championship at Brno, Troy Corser believes that the team have the potential to secure a podium finish by the end of the season.

At Brno both Corser and team-mate Ruben Xaus were rejuvenated with a much improved S1000RR. In qualifying both men made it into Superpole 3 to line up in the top eight. In the races with Corser led early on after a short battle with Spies before  securing the team’s best finish of fifth position.

Since the previous Donington Park race at the end of June the team have worked tirelessly at the workshop and completed a total of five days testing, which resulted in the teams best results at the Czech track.

Speaking to MCN, Corser said:
“I can race the bike now, it’s competitive and the performance is a lot more consistent. The step we made at Brno was the first of three. For the next race in Germany we’ll have the next step and I think our bike will work well around the Nurburgring.”

“In Brno I made the wrong tyre choice which was disappointing because I think I would have been able to run with Spies for three or four laps had I been on the right tyre. If we can carry on in this direction it will be good. It’s still going to be difficult to win, but there’s a chance of a podium.”
