On-Form World Supersport Pairing Ready To Go Again

May 12, 2009

Strong recent results for Joan Lascorz and Katsuaki Fujiwara have put each rider’s confidence at a high level as the Kyalami round approaches this weekend.

Lascorz took his Provec Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R to a fine second place at Monza last time out, while team-mate Katsuaki Fujiwara was sixth in the Italian race, held on May 10th.

The new model Ninja ZX-6R has proved its credentials already and with ever-improving set-up and a greater pool of data to draw on, the fact that Kyalami is a new track for the team does not reduce their combined confidence and determination to succeed.

Joan Lascorz: “We had a good result at Monza despite my early problems in the first laps, and that gives me and the team a good feeling that we can have even more positive results from now on. Kyalami is another new track for us but there are points at stake, so we will be out to improve our championship position yet again.”

Katsuaki Fujiwara: “Our base setting has been much improved at the last races and it was good for me to run near the front at Monza, for some of the race at least. One of our rival teams has tested at Kyalami in the winter, so we will have to make the most of our practice time. I have raced at Kyalami before, so that will help us if I can remember it well when I get there.”
