BMW and Yamaha on the right track ?

Markus Reiterberger had a much better weekend than Alex Lowes in Thailand: the 2015 German champion landed a "Top Funf" on his third World Superbike outing. The podium was still ten seconds away and the victory twenty, but the n ° 21 has something to be happy about.

Seventh the next day, "Reiti" nevertheless moved closer to the winner, finishing 15 seconds behind Sykes (Rea and Davies!). Even more satisfying, Markus beat his first opponent, his teammate Jordi Torres, on the post….

"Seventh place, another good result at #ThaiWorldSBK", the young German pilot said on Sunday evening before emphasizing the character"very fun"of the last corner … of which the BMW n ° 21 and 81 left fairing against fairing !

"I made a mistake in the first lap, and in the very last too because I was distracted by my signage and then by a latecomer who did not pull over", regrets the" Spanish Elvis ". But"it’s only the start of the season and we’re on the right track", relativizes the Spanish, impatient to race at home.

Outperforming the BMW Althea at Phillip Island, the Milwaukee team’s S1000RR performed much less at Buriram and only scored two small points this weekend: a first Saturday with Brookes and a second the next day with Abraham.

"Running out of points and out of answers", Josh Brookes observed Sunday night …"We will have to get back to the basics for Aragon, we are too far away. I need to trust my bike to go fast"…

Fallen on the complaint of the champion of Great Britain 2015 (title obtained with the R1), his compatriot Troy Corser tweeted yesterday: "sorry to see that, man … I offered to help you and your team though. Your manager replied that he didn’t need it. I think that if"…

Betrayed last year by the (ir) managers of Team JR Racing (read our), the double Superbike world champion proves that he still intends to invest in the World Superbike.

While waiting to find his place – why not as manager of Anthony West in Supersport, asks John Laverty? "Because we need sponsors"answers Troy! – the" Croco Corser "is enjoying the New Wales roads with his father and brother. On R1200GS, what else ?!

About three seconds behind Josh Brookes at the end of the two races, Sylvain Barrier continues his training on his Kawasaki Pedercini. Apart from the points in Thailand, "Syl’20" is nevertheless sure that by refining his driving, he will reach the Top 10.

Our second representative, Sylvain Guintoli, is also continuing his in-depth work on the R1 which is in its first WSBK season. but removed from the Top 5 in the race, "Guinters" assures to have made good progress this weekend.

Author of three straight-ahead in the first run, Sylvain halved the gap between him and the factory Kawasaki at the end of the second run. We still have to find half a second to win. But the goal of the 2014 world champion does not vary: "#HuntForGlory", he posted on his official Twitter account !

By finding a little more rhythm, the "Frenchie" could once again shine in World Superbike. It also retains its main asset: consistency (6th and 5th in Australia, 7th and 6th in Thailand) thanks to which Guintoli occupies the fifth place in the provisional and remains in contact with the best drivers..

In the Supersport category, a French driver – the only one registered! – already combines speed and consistency: Jules Cluzel! Martin Fourcade and Marie Dorin-Habert – whose biathlon successes were naturally echoed by Haut-Savoyard Loris Baz – are not the only ones to have carried the tricolor flag high this weekend !
