Haslam targeting maiden Brno podium

Leon Haslam targets his first World Superbike podium at Brno having failed to finish any higher than seventh over the last three seasons.
Leon Haslam comes into the ninth round of the 2012 World Superbike Championship determined to add Brno to his growing portfolio of podiums.

The British rider has notched up 28 rostrum finishes during his time competing at the premier level of Superbike racing, though Brno has become one of his less successful circuits over the years.

Indeed, though Haslam says he enjoys competing at the Czech venue, in six starts he has only managed a best result of seventh position. As such, the BMW rider is keen to turn in a Brno PB this weekend.

“I am really looking forward to Brno. I love racing there. The circuit has a lot of history. It is fast, flowing and wide and the layout is quite unique with its up and down sections. The characteristics of the circuit should suit our RR.

“Last year we had a tough weekend there, so I am looking forward to getting a better result there this year. I am still missing a podium there, so that is definitely the target for this weekend.”

Haslam is currently sixth in the WSBK standings, 30.5 points behind fifth place man Tom Sykes.
