WorldSBK Magny-Cours: 'Wet conditions are not my favourite' – Razgatlioglu

Yamaha's Toprak Razgatlioglu is not a big fan of racing in the wet but it might be a help to him at the Magny-Cours WorldSBK weekend as he recovers from a big crash at Catalunya.

The Turkish rider suffered a whopping highside in warm-up and didn't take part in either of Sunday's races but reckons after some rest, he is feeling more human.

“After a week of rest and physical therapy, I am already feeling much better after the big crash in Barcelona. I will continue working to come back fit for Magny-Cours," said Razgatlioglu.


"It is a circuit I really enjoy, especially after my victories there last year, and the Yamaha R1 has been strong in the past so I am looking forward to seeing what is possible.

"The weather prediction is not so good and wet conditions are not my favourite, but I have more confidence than before. I hope we can fight for podiums and challenge for victory once again.”

Razgatlioglu is also no stranger to this particular rostrum, as it would be hard to forget his spectacular maiden victories at the French track last year, both achieved after incredible fight-back performances from 16th on the grid.
