The Yamaha ParkinGO team, determined to put Sunday’s disappointing race day behind them, is gearing up for the penultimate round of the 2011 World Supersport Championship which will take place in Magny Cours this weekend. Chaz Davies and Luca Scassa are setting out for the French circuit, for what can only be a more positive weekend. The Yamaha riders were delivering a textbook perfect race, occupying first and second place when both riders fell victim to a technical issue, preventing them from completing the 19 laps.
Despite the lack of points in Imola, Chaz Davies still remains title favourite, leading the championship by 35 points with 50 points still up for graps. If Foret, currently in second place in the standings, were to win next Sunday, Davies would need to secure a third place finish to claim the well-deserved championship title that he is ever more motivated and determined to snatch this weekend. Mathematically also Salom, being 48 points behind Davies, still has a chance on the title. The Yamaha ParkinGO team is confident that the French circuit at Magny Cours is well suited for the Yamaha R6, the same machine on which Crutchlow claimed the second spot on the podium in 2009.
