Quotes forward of a deteriorate opener on Phillip Island.

 

Marc Bongers, BMW Motorrad Motorsport Director: “In
general, we are good prepared for a deteriorate opener. After a tests
in Jerez and Portimão we had some open points that we were means to
continue and to endorse here in good conditions. Now we have to make
a choice for a competition weekend. Tom’s gait is clever and we now have
to try to keep it over a competition distance. With Eugene, we have
identified a few things we will work on for a weekend to also
serve urge his pace. Our idea for a opening turn is: we want
to start from a front quarrel and we consider that we have a possibility to get
onto a podium.”

 

Shaun Muir, Team Principal BMW Motorrad WorldSBK
Team:
“We’ve had dual good days of contrast here in Australia.
On Eugene’s side, we’ve had a lot of information to work by and
we had gratifying results, mostly with a wiring and his feel
for a smoothness of a power. That has been his concentration area and while
we are happy so distant we will take some of this work into Friday. On
Tom’s side we’ve had a outrageous list of equipment for him to exam over a two
days. We are flattering happy with where we are. We’ve not managed to do
most competition make-believe due to a endless exam items, so that will be
Fridays focus. We know we can validate unequivocally good and aim to be on the
front quarrel in qualifying. But it’s not about qualifying, it’s about the
competition and we know that to be in row for a lectern position, we
need to do unchanging quick path times in a latter tools of race. To
do so and to be on a lectern is unequivocally a idea for a deteriorate opener.”

 

Tom Sykes: “I’m unequivocally happy with a approach things have
gone. We had unequivocally successful winter tests, didn’t get too carried away
with a path times and unequivocally focused on a set-up of a BMW S 1000
RR. We unequivocally got by a clever exam programme and when we came
here to Phillip Island, it has paid off. As shortly as we rolled out, the
bike felt unequivocally good and we were means to work on a small parameters
that we had in store before a competition weekend. Overall, I’m happy with
a outcome. We have a lot of information that we will investigate over next
days and we will try to come behind clever for a competition weekend with a
good bottom set-up. Regarding my goals for a deteriorate opener: obviously
everybody is here perplexing to win races. we only wish to be more
unchanging via a deteriorate though we always have to aim for the
podium, always have to try to make that lectern into a competition win and
apparently here it is not different.”

 

Eugene Laverty: “I’m a standard rider, we always want
some-more time, an additional day to be prepared though it has been a good integrate of
exam days. We’ve worked a lot towards competition credentials since you
have combine on 20 laps not only on one path and that has been our
focus. We still have some work to do to do that quick path time as for
instance Tom has been means to do though I’m assured that we will get
there. We need to be fighting adult there for a lectern since this
bike’s able of it during this track. We’re feeling prepared. We need
some some-more dry time on Friday to find a one path gait though I’m
assured that for a prolonged distance, we will be there.”
