MSS Discovery look for win.

MSS Discovery's Pere Riba is chasing victory in Sunday's sixth round of the British Supersport Championship at Thruxton, Hants. as the Spaniard steps up his title challenge.

"We are very close now to being in a position where I think we can win races regularly," believes Riba. "The ZX-6RR Kawasaki feels very good and if we can get the machine matched well with the Metzeler tyres at Thruxton I see no reason why I can't win."

Riba has five top 10 finishes from the five races so far ­ his lowest finish being seventh place­ and is looking to the halfway point in the 13-round championship to begin improving on his fifth place in the points standings.

"I've learned that consistency pays off in the Supersport class ­ both at World and British level ­ and I want to put myself in with a chance of winning the title when we go to the last two rounds," adds Riba.

MSS Discovery team owners Stuart Simmonds and Nick Morgan are hoping Thruxton will realise the full potential of the talent of the Supersport contender Riba.

Morgan said, "Mondello Park was a turning point for us with regard to development of the ZX-6RR and I'm hoping we can put that new-found knowledge to good use on Sunday."
