Toseland set to race at Miller

James Toseland will look to start his first World Superbike race in three months at Miller Motorsports Park following time out through injury.
James Toseland will start only his third World Superbike Championship event of the season at Miller Motorsports Park as he bids to complete a full weekend of racing.

The Briton made his comeback from a wrist injury last time out at Monza, but withdrew after the opening day of practice on the BMW Italia. With three weeks of further recuperation, Toseland is expected to start both races in the United States – his first since the Australian season opener.

Toseland's return comes as BMW Italia embarks on an upward trend, his team-mate Ayrton Badovini scoring a pair of strong top ten finishes at Monza, including a sixth in race two.

With Toseland back on board, technical director Serafino Foti is confident the former champion's development input will help push the team further forward.

"We head to America to continue our work plan. We will try some new bike parts. We haven't much data for this track but we will try to maintain the level we have achieved, confirming the progress made so far.

“We are pleased that James is now in good physical condition and this will help us speed up the development work so far carried out by Ayrton alone. After a good performance at Monza, Badovini is approaching the American trip with great enthusiasm. Our realistic goal is to stay in the top ten".

Fit by ordinary standards maybe but not necessarily race fit just yet. He's been out of action for a while. A realistic ambition would be two solid points-scoring finishes and to gain more experience on the bike. I'm sure he and the team would be pleased with that for now.
