Fabrizio returns to ‘favourite track’

Michel Fabrizio believes Brno is the perfect place to launch a late assault on the 2009 World Superbike title having enjoyed considerable success there in recent years.

The Italian is 51 points behind Ducati Xerox team-mate Noriyuki Haga in the overall standings following an indifferent weekend at Donington Park, but he is confident of making up significant ground in the Czech Republic.

Indeed, Fabrizio has finished off the podium just once in his last six races at Brno, including a second and third place result last year to signify his best weekend of the 2008 season.

Having also finished on the podium in nine of the last ten races, Fabrizio wants to use Brno as a springboard for a winning end to the season.

“Brno is probably my favourite track on the calendar, mainly because it's the circuit where I've had most success! Since 2005 I've only failed to reach the podium once so that's not a bad record but I know that this year I have some stiff competition.

“I will be looking for two more podium finishes, preferably a race win, this weekend as I need to do everything possible to close the gap between me, and Nori and Ben.”

@slammy: Well yeah, but as I've never met him, I have to go by what I see on the screen and as I said, I just can't warm to him. Plenty of people love him I'm sure, so fair play. @Spinach: Nope, never said that. I watch racing for the whole weekend action. @wr86: Friday night date? Well as I'm not that way inclined, I very much doubt it, but feel free to knock yourself out! A motorcycle racer is so much more than just a 'racer' and it's not JUST about how you are on the track. As I said, I watch racing for the whole weekend action and obviously that includes more than just the 2 races, but hey, it's my opinion, I'm not a fan of the guy. I give him credit, he's fast, but that's it for me.
