Corser confused by lack of top end grunt

Troy Corser was left somewhat confused by an apparent lack of straight line speed during provisional qualification at Losail, Qatar, the Aussie rider classified down in 16th.

With a good top speed imperative around the lengthy Middle Eastern circuit, Corser was unable to explain why his maximum from provisional qualification was no higher than 300km/h, compared to rivals who averaged around 310km/h.

With the BMW S1000RR proving comparable with its rivals in Australia, Corser admits he was surprised to be losing ground in this area, suggesting that it may have been down to a technical, rather than fundamental, problem.

“I'm really not sure what was going on today, and this afternoon especially, because my bike just didn't seem to have the top end grunt it should have had.

“After qualifying, we looked at the top speeds of all the bikes and my bike was quite a bit down compared to most of the others, so I guess there was some kind of a problem. The engineers have a lot of data and telemetry to work with and I'm sure that they will find out what was going on and how we can get the bike working better.

Having been unable to test the Losail circuit prior to the event, Corser admits the team are on a steep learning curve this weekend. Nonetheless, with less than a second separating him from the front row, he is looking forward to chipping down the gap to the leaders.

“I just used one bike today because we wanted to understand what was going on at this track and keep pushing forward with all the info.

“Maybe that was right and maybe that was wrong, but as we have no info here for our bike, we know that we just have to plug away and get as much work done as possible and it seemed sensible to do it with just one bike. Maybe that'll change for tomorrow, we shall see.”
