Baz championship leader

After three podiums out of four races, Loris Baz is now the strong leader of the Superstock 600 European Championship. He has a 21 points lead on his immediate follower Patrick Vostarek, who was the winner at the Nurburgring, eight tenths of a second in front of Loris. Misano is the 5th of the 10 races held this year in this category, and the second part of the season will start on July 19 in Brno (Czech Republic)-- in Vostarek's country.

Loris Baz: "I don't know this track very well because I have been in Misano only once, last May. I like the layout and I am confident for the race even if the Italians will play on their home turf. But be sure I shall try my best to score the best possible result." About Scott Redding (he is 15 like Loris) winning the Donington 125 cc GP: "Congratulations to Scott for this superb victory at his national Grand Prix. I raced with him the first time at Fontenay Le Conte in the Conti 50 Cup, then in Spain in the Metrakit championship. Congratulations also to Marc Marquez, also from the "Spanish school", for his third position."

Martial Garcia (team-manager): "The goal now is to manage carefully the championship and Loris is doing that very well. He has a good lead, but it is necessary to stay well concentrated."

Sylvain Barrier, who was operated between the Monza and the Nurburgring races, is now back in shape. Last year in Misano, he was the sixth fastest of the qualifying practices of the 600 class.
