Troy Corser is confident better World Superbike Championship results will start coming the way of the BMW team soon as they continue their development of the S1000RR.

Although Corser and team-mate Ruben Xaus have a best result of ninth between them following the opening eight rounds of the season, the bike has proven to be competitive as a race package.

Furthermore, from a total of sixteen starts, the bike has proven to be very reliable, failing to reach the chequered flag on just one occasion, when Corser crashed at Valencia.

Nonetheless, former champion Corser is aware that they are still going through the phases of development and has reiterated that improved results will come in the future.

"Our bike is still being developed and there are some new parts to come very soon, so I am confident that there are improvements to come. We have only just started working on the traction and wheelie control, so you can see that's there's lots more we can do with the bike.

"The new schedule means that we have lost at least thirty minutes. If you are an experienced or established team it's not so bad, but we are a new team and need as much track time as we can get. So, at the moment we are at a bit of a disadvantage, but everybody in the team is working hard and it's not going to be too long before better results come."
