Loris Baz stood out at Imola at the last WorldSBK round as he finished the weekend as the top BMW rider despite having a poor season overall. This puts the Frenchman in a good mindset for Most this weekend.
Loris Baz is heading to Most this weekend with his head held high after his race weekend at the last round at Imola. In Italy last time Baz was the most competitive BMW rider and even beat factory BMW rider, Scott Redding.
The French rider has not had an easy season as he has picked up injuries throughout the year which have held him back. However, it seems like the Bonovo Action BMW rider has finally found a base setup to use for this season.
“I’m excited to go to Most," said Loris Baz ahead of this weekend. "It is the first time this year that I am heading into a race weekend coming from a good race. I really hope that we left all the bad luck behind us now.
"Imola was great. The guys did a good job to find a better base set-up that suits me. It’s not easy to find that when you don’t ride a lot and don’t test, but with the injury it was tough. I’m really looking forward to Most.
"Last year the BMW was really fast there. I wasn’t, but Scott was, so I think we have potential there. I’m really looking forward to seeing if the base we found at Imola will be good here as well. The target is to work a lot from FP1 and we showed at Imola that this is what you need to do.
"I’m excited for the last WorldSBK round before the break, which we start with IDM at Spielberg. That will be cool, I’m really looking forward to it.”
Now that Baz is fighting fit and has found a setup that works for him expect to see him flying from the word 'go'. Last time we were at Most Baz scored points in one race as he finished 11th in the opening race of the weekend and will want to pick up more points this season to improve on his 16th place in the Championship.
