Baz leading, Millet instead of Barrier

Loris Baz arrives at Donington with a 32 points advantage for the eighth race of the Superstock 600 European Championship, out of a total of ten events. In the 1000 cc class, Franck Millet will ride Sylvain Barrier's R1 as Barrier is still recovering for the knee injuries he suffered in Brno.

Loris Baz wants to confirm his actual domination over the championship, with only three races to go: "If we look at the numbers, I can be champion at Donington. This will be my first opportunity to win the title. But I do not enjoy so much this type of situation, as I would like to win the race, but at the same time I must not crash. I shall have to adapt to the circumstances of the race, on this track of wish I like the lay out."

Franck Millet is 21. He was born on October 21 in 1986. He raced in 2006 the Superstock 600 European Championship and his best result was 5th at Magny-Cours. In 2005, he was Swiss champion in the Superstock 600 category, with 6 victories out of 10 races (Brno, Oschersleben 1 & 2, Dijon 1 & 2, and Ledenon). In 2007, the son of sidecar pilot Jean-Louis Millet raced in the Superstock 1000 FIM Cup.

The whole team is with Sylvain Barrier and wishes to see him soon with us on the tracks.
