Encouraged BMW turn attentions to 2010

BMW look to bring their encouraging first season of World Superbike racing to an end with another positive performance.
BMW has labelled its maiden season of World Superbike competition a success, before confirming Troy Corser and Ruben Xaus will definitely remain with the team for 2010.

One of two new teams to enter World Superbikes in 2009, while Aprilia's racing background enabled them to get up to speed relatively quickly, BMW's first season of Superbike racing has seen them take longer to fully establish themselves.

Nonetheless, effective development throughout the year has bolstered BMW's credibility, with Corser's recent top ten showings on the S1000RR helping them get amongst the upper mid-field runners.

With the final round of the season in Portugal now looming, BMW Motorrad motorsport director Berti Hauser has been impressed with the team's upward trend, but is now eager to give Corser and Xaus a bike they can win races with in 2010.

“This year has been a big adventure for us all and an exciting challenge. We knew that this year was not going to be easy, but I think we have done very well considering we are such a new team. Our bike (and our team) has a big potential and we know that we are going to make more and more progress.

“Already, we are looking forward to continuing our development over the winter and coming back even stronger next year.

“I am very happy that we will have Troy and Ruben with us again in 2010. From the very first day, they have been part of the team and have helped create a super team atmosphere. Both are strong and are determined to win and hopefully we can give them the opportunity to do it next year.”

Looking forward to next year. I reckon they will do much better next year. It would be nice to see Troy winning again on what will be his sixth different bike. If BMW can give him the goods, who knows what could happen. :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)
