Best ever WSB finish for Benelli.

Benelli Sport enjoyed their best ever World Superbike Championship finish today when Peter Goddard powered the Benelli Tornado to twelfth place in race one at Oschersleben.

"We found some good settings on Saturday," commented Goddard. "Unfortunately just a little too late as I reckon that if we had used them earlier in qualifying we would have made it into Superpole."

Goddard had qualified back in eighteenth so he had his work cut out in the race. "I got a great start in race one," said Goddard, "and then lost a couple of places and settled into twelfth. I was able to hold Pedercini off for the entire race and kept twelfth place to the flag. That's our best ever finish and I'm really happy about that."

Race two was a different story, "I didn't get such a good start but I reckon I still would have finished well. But, on lap 22, while I was chasing down Pedercini the bike stopped and that was that."

The team now pack away for the journey to Holland for the Assen round next weekend. "I hope that some of the improvements we made this weekend will put us in good stead for the last two meetings," said Goddard. "A top ten finish before the end of the season would be great!"
