LACONI EIGHTH IN RACE TWO

Valencia, Spain, 15 April 2007 – Regis Laconi (PSG-1 Kawasaki Corse Ninja ZX-10R) overcame the difficulty of a fourth row start to score an eighth place in the second Valencia Superbike race, and improve one place in his overall championship ranking.

He had finished 11th in race one, and his two good points scores, from a fourth row start each time, put him 10th in the rankings now.

An unlucky raceday homecoming for his team-mate Fonsi Nieto (PSG-1 Kawasaki Corse Ninja ZX-10R) saw him fail to finish twice, slipping off in race one and retiring in race two after running off the circuit.

In race one Nieto, who had worked himself into a good position after the early laps, fell on the tricky track conditions, while Laconi’s good start to race one ended when he collided with another rider and lost places to the faster group.

Regis Laconi: “I made a good start to race two, and I was happy because I was taking the rhythm of the guys in the front. I think eighth today was good after a tough qualifying, but want even better results. In race one I touched together with Max after a slow start and I lost four places.”

Fonsi Nieto: “I really wanted to do better in this circuit. I can’t start from 14th and make two no scores in races. We need to make changes before Assen. We have to try something to make a good direction because I had three laps today and the tyres were finished. Now it’s time to work harder and harder and to stay together to be able to leave behind this negative period.”
