Corser prepares for Miller return

Troy Corser is looking forward to getting back to action when the 2009 World Superbike Championship reaches the half-way mark at Miller Motorsports Park in the United States.

The Australian, who has been carrying a hand injury, sat out the Kyalami round in an attempt to recuperate fully from two large accidents just a week earlier at Monza.

Back in the BMW saddle for Miller Motorsports Park, Corser insists it was the right decision to watch from the sidelines from Kyalami, even if he stops short of saying he has quite fully recovered.

“Missing Kyalami has given my hand a chance to get better and although I don't like missing any races, I think it was the right decision because Kyalami is such a physical circuit,” he said. “It's going to take a bit of time for the hand to heal fully, but at least Miller is not such a demanding track. That doesn't mean that it is an easy track, just that it is not so bad as some others.”

Facing another tough task around an unfamiliar circuit for the S1000RR, Corser is once again setting his sights on improvements in qualifying in order to fully exploit the bike's more competitive race pace.

“At Miller, we will have the usual problem of racing at a circuit from which we have no previous data for our bike. It's our usual disadvantage and we have to try and get a good set-up for the race, a good set-up for Superpole, and qualify better.

“We have been having to work so hard in the early part of the races so far, because of our grid positions, so it would interesting (and a nice change) to see what would happen if we could qualify on the second or third row of the grid.”
