BMW hail Corser’s Valencia performance
Following Troy Corser’s impressive fourth place in race one at Valencia, BMW’s Technical Director Rainer Baumel has revealed how impressed he was with the Australians performance.
The significance of the teams result was highlighted, not only by the overall finishing position, but how close Corser was to securing a place on the podium.
At the end of the 23 lap race Corser was 4.2 seconds behind clear winner Leon Haslam, but significantly just 0.6 seconds behind third place finisher James Toseland.
Baumel said: “Troy was extremely focused over the whole weekend at Valencia. In the first race he launched the bike off the start line straight into the lead. And later on he defended his fourth place successfully, in a spectacular battle with Noriyuki Haga.
"In a nutshell, Troy has done a fantastic job. I've never seen him fighting like this before in his time with us. I'm very proud of what's he's doing, and working with him is a lot of fun."
