WSBK Assen, Netherlands: Rostrum repeat target for van der Mark at home event

Michael van der Mark says he only has eyes on putting the disappointment suffered at Aragon behind him with a return to the rostrum at Assen.
Michael van der Mark says he only has eyes on putting the disappointment suffered at Aragon behind him with a return to the rostrum at his home round at Assen.

The Dutch youngster has been the star of the show when the World Superbike paddock has visited 'the Cathedral of Speed' for the past two years, after taking his maiden World Supersport win in 2014 which ignited his title charge and a year later claimed his first World Superbike podiums with two third places.

After crashing out of race one at Aragon two weeks ago van der Mark struggled to keep pace in the second race to finish seventh and slip to fourth in the riders' standings. The 23-year-old says he always relishes the opportunity to race in front of his home fans at Assen and wants to return to the sharp end of the grid immediately.

“I'm looking forward to race again at Assen and to receive a great welcome by the Dutch fans, who are always very supportive towards me and the team,” van der Mark said. “Assen is undoubtedly a very special place and it's such a great track to be racing on.

“Last year we did very well and that resulted in a double podium, so this year I'm eager to do my very best once again; I'm sure we have everything we need to be back at the sharp end and to put the last round behind us.”
