Corser: I`d rather be fifth, than fourth or third.

Troy Corser is planning on making the most of his outside line on the grid at Brands Hatch after qualifying fifth for the latest round of the World Superbike Championship.

The one-lap specialist was forced to produce the goods over a 50-minute period this time around following the arrival of rain at the Kent circuit, weather that prompted officials to revert to a free session instead.

Nonetheless, Corser has put himself well in contention for victory come race day after landing fifth on the grid, directly behind Troy Bayliss. It is a position he believes will help him on the run down to the heavily cambered Paddock Hill Bend.

“Fifth is not too bad,” he told Crash.net. “I am right behind pole position, so it might be a little better than being third or fourth. I qualified fifth here last year and I performed well, so I am not too concerned at the moment.

“It was tricky out there in Superpole though because whoever was out there last and taking the risks would do well, but I didn't want to crash before the races. I am more of a fan of doing it over one lap, rather than doing four fast laps, but you have to do what you have to do.”

Still eyeing that long awaited first win with Yamaha, Corser is remaining confident that this could be the weekend that he finally breaks his duck with the Japanese manufacturer.

“We are aiming for nothing less than a podium tomorrow, but I think we can go for the win. We have the pace for it and while it won't be easy, we are really up for it.”
