Troy Corser Takes Superpole by over half a second

It's great to see Troy on top to start the year for Yamaha.
Corser take superpole by half a second... AWESOME!

Troy Corser (Yamaha Motor Italia) powered to the 41st pole position of his career in the opening round of the 2008 HANNspree Superbike World Championship at the Losail International Circuit in Qatar but he had to work hard to hold off the challenge of Ruben Xaus and Max Biaggi, second and third respectively. Corser's time of 1'58.053 was four-tenths of a second quicker than the circuit's best lap, which the 36-year-old Australian set for Yamaha last year. Xaus and Biaggi, both on Ducati 1098 RS08 machines from the private Sterilgarda Go Eleven squad, were heading for a sensational 1-2 before Corser put in his quick lap. Alongside them on the grid for the two races tomorrow will be Alstare Suzuki's young German rider Max Neukirchner.

1. Troy Corser (Yamaha) 1'58.053
2. Ruben Xaus (Ducati) 1'58.689

Haga is very picky about his settings. Once he gets things dialed in to his liking he will be good to go for the season.

Nice to see the R1 kicking arse.


Ride safe.

Neukirchner is becoming a force. It's clear tho that those privateer Ducati's are very fast.

When hell freezes over, we'll ride there too.
