RESULTS: At Brno Max Biaggi (Aprilia) Takes His Ninth Victory in the 2010 World SBK Championship

At Brno Max takes his ninth victory in the 2010 World SBK championship: a victory in race 2 which launches him 68 points out front of the closest competitor. A capital performance for the Corsair and the Aprilia Alitalia Racing Team

Brno, 11 July 2010 - After his second place in race 1, Max Biaggi takes back the keys to the Brno circuit with an unrepeatable show. The good start was just a prelude to a monologue: from the sixth lap on, after overtaking Rea, Max Biaggi set an infernal pace which the followers just couldn't match. The 4.6 second final gap tell the whole story of Max's devastating supremacy.

The Corsair's consistency was also impressive, with points earned in all eighteen rounds with nine victories including the one today.

A good performance for team mate Leon Camier as well, finally comfortable on the Czech track after a weekend of searching for the right feeling. He finished in eighth place and is now eagerly awaiting the race on his home turf in Silverstone.

The fifth victory in the last six races for Max Biaggi takes him to 352 points, 68 in front of Haslam, while Aprilia solidifies its lead in the manufacturer rankings with 53 points over Suzuki and 82 over Ducati.

"After the second place in race 1 I was satisfied anyway - comments Max Biaggi - even if, to be honest, I expected the maximum on this track. And so it was in the second race: we made some changes to the rear suspension and the gearbox which, as it turns out, worked well. After being behind Rea for a while, I realised that I was faster and I overtook him. From there on, I just pushed it to the limit without thinking about tyre wear and the track proved me right. I want to thank my team. The guys support me and believe in my indications, and this is confirmed by our results. There are still a lot of points at stake, so I won't look back and I'll continue to stay focused race after race. That is the winning philosophy."
