TRIUMPH'S WSS REPORT

WSS '10 Round 11 | Nurburgring, race day

Chaz Davies and David Salom of the  ParkinGO Triumph BE1 Racing team finished sixth and seventh respectively in Germany today, after exchanging positions until the very last lap.
On the other hand, both Matthieu Lagrive and Vittorio Iannuzzo retired from the race, the former after a crash, the latter due to a mechanical issue.
The "Four Musketeers" will return to the track in three weeks time for the penultimate round of the season held at Imola, where the goal will be to battle for the podium again.
CHAZ DAVIES | Triumph Daytona 675 | 5th : " We had less problems than we had yesterday, but I didn't have any grip on the back end for the whole nineteen laps. I made a good start and got in the leading pack right away. After battling with the Kawasakis, I had to take it up a notch. My teammate Salom, Roccoli and Pirro all caught up with me. We had a nice duel for several laps, but in the end I finished in front of the group".

DAVID SALOM | Triumph Daytona 675 | 6th : "I had the same issues as my teammates. Unfortunately, this track is not the best one for our bike. I didn't get a very good start and so I lost many positions, but recovered a few eventually. Too bad it turned out this way, I was really hoping for a better result, especially after Friday's practice".

MATTHIEU LAGRIVE  | Triumph Daytona 675 | 16th : "I made a very good start, but I crashed after just a few laps, unfortunately. Too bad, I could've finished in front".

VITTORIO IANNUZZO | Triumph Daytona 675 | 17th : "I'm disappointed for how this weekend turned out, I was feeling ready to aim higher. Unfortunately, we didn't find the right setup so that myself and my teammates could perform at our best. I hope to redeem myself in front of the home crowd at Imola”.
