Loris Baz, motorcycle rider sponsored by Charriol, won SBK World Superbike Championship third place finish at Brno Czech Republic race on July 22nd 2012.
The talented youngster didn’t expect to be on the podium so soon, just after a few races.
From 15th on the grid, he went up 5th place by the end of the opening lap. Taking advantage of a collision between Jonathan Rea and Tom Sykes, also delaying Carlos Checa, Loris Baz held the 3rd position untill end of race.
Loris Baz said :
“I can’t believe I am here on the podium in race one, I could not dream of being on the podium when I started in Superbike just a few races ago. I started well and just tried to stay there with the other riders.
We have been working very well in Kawasaki, all the mechanics and so on, and we never go in the wrong way. Because I am tall we had to make some changes to the geometry of the bike since I started riding it, but it really feels like I have been riding this bike for a year or more. I still think I am dreaming right now to be on the podium. In race two I got a good start again but it took a bit of time to overtake two riders in front of me. I had a really good feeling with the bike again. I could not make a step to pass some other riders but I am really happy.
It is out best race in the full dry conditions and we were only 13 seconds from the front so it was really close.”
Loris staged really staged his best performances of the season … Untill next one !
