Xaus helps BMW to best results

BMW's gradual ascension up the World Superbike hierarchy continued at Monza as Ruben Xaus delivered them their best result yet with a seventh place finish.

Although Troy Corser qualified a season-best 11th, the Australian would fail to finish the first race after crashing heavily, forcing him to sit out the second too.

Instead, Xaus represented BMW in both races, the Spaniard showing impressive pace on both occasions to dice with his rivals inside the top ten, coming away with a finish of seventh and ninth position.

Lifting him ahead of Corser in the overall standings, Xaus was delighted to reward the BMW team for their hard work between the races.

“I am happy to give the team our best result of the season so far and happy that I managed another top ten finish in the second race,” he said. “My seventh place result is also for Troy and the whole team because everybody has worked so hard for this.

“My race two result could've been better, but I made a really bad start and then got nudged by somebody in the chicane. I recovered and was happy fighting for eighth with Smrz, Parkes and Laconi but I just couldn't get past Smrz for eighth.

“But generally, my race pace was good today and I think our result is also very good considering how little time we have in practice and qualifying. If we continue to make this good progress, we will be fighting for places even further up.”
