Michel Fabrizio heads to this weekend's returning Kyalami round of the World Superbike Championship on the back of his best weekend to date, having taken his first WSBK race victory in race one at Monza and then second place in race two.
Boosting the Ducati Xerox rider's confidence even further heading to South Africa is that the Italian was fastest of all during December's test session at the circuit.
"Having at last won a race this weekend at Monza I just want to win again as soon as possible!” he said. “From what I learned of the track during the winter I can say that I'm really looking forward to this round.
“The Kyalami circuit is really fun to ride and I did well at the two 'new' tracks in 2008 [Salt Lake City and Portimao] so I'd like it if this year's new track were also to bring me similar luck.
“We recorded some very fast lap times during the test days and so of course we hope that conditions over the race weekend allow us to maintain that pace.”
Kyalami last hosted a WSBK round in 2002.
