Corser targets third Italian podium

Troy Corser bids to put his Nurburgring troubles behind him with a return to the podium at Imola.
Troy Corser is bidding to record his third World Superbike podium of the 2010 season – and his third on Italian soil – as the series turns to Imola for the penultimate event of the year.

While Corser and BMW have shown impressive pace at most venues this season, the Australian's two rostrum finishes have come in Italy at first Monza and then Misano.

Travelling to Imola having hit an indifferent patch of form at Silverstone and Nurburgring, where accidents have hampered his progress, Corser is certain the S1000RR is capable of challenging towards the front at Imola and as such is targeting a return to the podium.

“For sure I'm looking forward to Imola,” he said. “The bike has changed considerably since last year so the data we have is not entirely relevant now. This year has always been about collating data and fine-tuning settings so we have a solid base going into next year. Still, I am going to Imola with my head held high.

“We had a tricky weekend in Germany after crashing twice on Saturday and once on Sunday but we all know we have the package to compete for podiums. Hopefully we can start and finish the weekend well at Imola, come away with some solid points and some useful data for next year.”

Having been in contention for a top five finish overall after his Misano success, Corser's DNS at Brno and his problems at Silverstone and the Nurburgring have dropped him to 11th in the standings.

Surely having inked his 2011 deal with BMW will give a confidence boost to Troy. A win could even be on the cards! I'd love to see him win one (at least) this year, he deserves it after all the hard work done to turn the S1000 into a championship contender.
