YAMAHA REVVED UP AND READY FOR THE LAST EUROPEAN WORLDSBK WEEKEND IN MAGNY-COURS
The Pata Yamaha WorldSBK pairing of Michael van der Mark and Alex Lowes head into final European round of the 2019 FIM Superbike World Championship at Magny-Cours this weekend with their sights set firmly on the podium, as they continue to dispute third place in the championship standings.
Van der Mark has enjoyed success at Magny-Cours in the past, with the Dutchman finishing on the podium in France in every year except his rookie WorldSBK season. Both Pata Yamaha riders head into this weekend determined to add to their podium tally, which currently stands at six for both, including a race win in Jerez for Van der Mark.
Michael van der Mark – Pata Yamaha WorldSBK: “I can’t quite believe we’re heading to the final European round at Magny-Cours this weekend, the season seems to have flown past! I like the track and I’ve had some decent results there in the past, so I’m looking forward to the weekend ahead. Top-three is the target, as I’m determined to return to the podium after a disappointing Race 2 in Portugal. Hopefully the notoriously changeable weather will be kind to us again this year!”
