WSBK Magny-Cours: French pilots ready to kill everything
The penultimate round of the 2014 World Superbike championship takes place this weekend at Magny-Cours. Seven drivers will try to make the Marseillaise resound, starting with Guintoli, still in contention for the world title against Sykes. Let’s go kids !
"After the solid weekend of, I can’t wait to get back on the track at Magny-Cours and try to catch up to the championship.", warns the No. 50 Aprilia currently second in the championship, 31 points behind the Number One in the discipline Tom Sykes.
But the task promises to be difficult, since Sykes remains on three straight victories in France: "Major Tom" had won the second round of – but had missed the title by half a point against Biaggi – and had signed the doubled, this time capping the world crown.
"It won’t be easy"Guinters", who came second and third last year, knows full well, "but I still have my chances. So I’ll take all the necessary risks and do my best to beat Tom. The support of the French public will be a big advantage and I trained like a beast! I’m ready".
Teammate of the famous Tom, Loris Baz is also "really looking forward to going to Magny-Cours, especially since I missed the race last year. Your home race is always a bit special", observes our" Green Giant "who will wear this weekend an equally special helmet on the theme of" Super Mario Bazio " !
The month of hiatus from Spain seemed long – for everyone – but Bazooka considers himself "ready to resume at Magny-Cours, and even if I didn’t run here last year, it’s a circuit that I know very well because I have participated in two Bols d’Or". He even won the one on the Kawasaki SRC !
"I really like this track, the Ninja ZX-10R drives well here", continues our favorite No. 76,"and I’m sure we can do something right. There are always a lot of spectators at this race and it’s a bit special to ride in front of my fans".
Still in Superbike, but in the Evo category this time, Sylvain Barrier will also play for the win. After being noticed during the, the BMW driver will try to shine during the 2×35 minutes of Magny-Cours !
Jérémy Guarnoni is also keen to do well in front of his family. He has already started, by reserving a "little surprise for my Magny-Cours supporters, here is a taste !", he says on his official Facebook page where you can admire a four-color Ninja: blue, white, red … and green of course !
This penultimate round of the 2014 championship will also be an opportunity to greet a fifth (!) French rider registered in Superbike: Fabien Foret, who was no longer to ride this season (due to the withdrawal of his Indian team) but is taking advantage of the absence of Luca Scassa to steal his ZX-10R !
"After spending fifteen years in the paddock, it is clear to me that this is my last season in WSBK"Says the Supersport World Champion (2002!)."I was disappointed to end the year on a bad note in terms of results and especially earlier than expected, but now I have an opportunity to run at home in Magny-Cours and I accepted it"
"I want to stress that I am not completely stopping the competition, since I will be participating in several races of the World Endurance Championship.", continues Fabien!"I have a great relationship with Kawasaki and they would love to see me race with them next year".
Site readers – who, as everyone knows, are a little more fortunate than others – already knew: Mr. Foret should take part in the entire endurance world championship with Team Kawasaki SRC. "There aren’t many events and I think it would be a good compromise between running full time and retiring.", he observes mischievously.
"It’s a different kind of competition, which is not about pure speed but more about consistency and physical condition.". Quite the opposite of Supersport, one would be tempted to conclude, this category where Jules Cluzel and Florian Marino will try to impose themselves … For honor only, because …
