Haslam and BMW chase Monza glory

SMALLEY World Superbike racer Leon Haslam is looking to Sunday’s fourth round of the championship at Monza in Italy to challenge for his first win of 2011 and his first aboard the BMW S1000RR machine.

Haslam is fifth in the 2011 championship and is confident the ever-improving BMW machine will be winning soon.

“Since the start of the year we’ve worked very, very hard as a team and there’s absolutely no doubt that we are heading in the right direction with the further development of the S1000RR”� said Haslam.

After an opening race third place in Australia, Haslam has again shown consistency, taking five top five finishes from the six races so far this year. He took fourth and second place finishes at Monza last year on his way to a runner-up finish in the 2010 Championship.

�”Monza is a great circuit and steeped in motor sport history so it�s always nice to go back there,� continued Haslam.

“This weekend I’d really like to continue the results we’ve achieved so far this year but also start looking for a run of podiums like I had in 2010”.
