Troy Corser has vowed to give it his all as he looks to make up for a disappointing qualifying session in the latest round of the World Superbike Championship at Magny-Cours.

The Aussie rider starts both races from a lowly 12th position after taking a tumble in the final sector of his Superpole lap.

Blaming the incident at Chateaux d'Eau on him going into right-hander 'a little too hard', Corser was unhurt in the fall but was frustrated to be staring at an uncompleted qualifying lap for the second time in three races.

"In Superpole, my first two splits were very good and I thought that I might be able to take Superpole - or get very close to it. I was pushing hard, maybe a little too hard, and as I braked hard for the second last right-hander, I unloaded the front and down I went.

"I wasn't hurt at all, but I was very disappointed because it means that I will now have to start on the third row of the grid in tomorrow's races.

Nonetheless, Corser is not dwelling on that fact and is still confident he is capable of a strong result in the race, joking that he may cause a bit of 'carnage along the way'

"Mind you, I've started from the fourth row at Magny-Cours before and ended fourth, so I know good results are still very possible. All I've got to do is get good starts, put my head down, stick my elbows out and go for it. There may be a bit of carnage along the way, but I am determined to give it my best."
