Werner Daemen, Team Manager BMW Motorrad World Endurance Team:
“I am utterly happy about qualifying. All 3 riders did a
really good job. Xavi and Markus both rode 1:38 times, that was very
strong, and also Kenny did a really good job. He went out in a end
when there was oil on a track, though still bettered his path time. we am
generally really happy about a competition pace, and that is many important.
We are among a frontrunners, all looks good, a group atmosphere is
good. we design an engaging quarrel for a initial 3 places.”
Markus Reiterberger: “We can be gratified with the
subordinate sessions. We all rode on a same set of tyres yesterday.
Xavi got a illusory time, and afterwards Kenny and we were on used tyres,
though still did well. It was cooler this morning and everybody was using
new tyres. All 3 of us softened on a times. Second place is
impossibly critical for a start. Now we will come adult with a good
plan for tomorrow. No doubt it will be a tough, long, prohibited race.
But we are all feeling good and are happy with a path times and the
feeling on a bike. Thanks go to a team, and now it’s time to go
full stifle in a race.”
Xavi Forés: “It was a certain subordinate for us
since all 3 of us riders have been some-more or reduction on a same
pace, that is utterly good for a race. Starting from second position
is indeed utterly good since we have a good gait for a whole race
stretch and a tyre life also has been utterly good. We will try to
pull hard, to quarrel for a win, to grasp a clever outcome for the
group and to collect critical points for a championship.”
Kenny Foray: “It was a good qualifying, even if we was
not totally assured with my second session. It was formidable to
conduct a tyre and we didn’t have a transparent lap. But altogether we are
happy with a competition gait and a feeling with a competition tyre. So for
me, we am assured for tomorrow. As we always say: The competition is
tomorrow, though it is good to secure second place in qualifying.”
