The start of this year’s Superbike World Championship is approaching, which will take place at the end of the month at Phillip Island (Australia). Toprak Razgatlioglu goes in search of his second title and believes in starting “with the right foot”.
Speaking to GPOne.com after testing in Portimao, the Turkish Pata Yamaha rider was pleased to be able to test on the circuit before the race: ‘I’m very happy that we’ll test before racing at Phillip Island, because last year I had grip problems. Before the race weekend, we will test the bike and try to find a good set-up.’
On the outlook for the start of the season, Razgatlioglu commented: ‘I think we will start strong in the first races. Alvaro, Johnny, and today also Locatelli have improved a lot. And he too is another one who starts very strong. I hope we can fight for the podium in the first races, we’ll see, but I have very positive sensations.’
