Loris Cresson Ready To Race When WorldSBK Restarts At The End Of July
Less than 72 hours after completing a successful three days on track at Spa-Francorchamps and the TT Circuit Assen, Loris Cresson has further cause to smile with the announcement that the 2020 FIM Supersport World Championship will resume at the end of July.
In addition to the unveiling of the new look calendar, Dorna (the series organisers) have announced that in all European events this year the WorldSSP category will have two races – one on Saturday and one on Sunday and Belgium’s sole WorldSSP representative can’t wait to get back on track.
“I’m pretty excited that we finally have the calendar and that we can go racing again soon, although I’m not totally happy with so many races in Spain but it is what it is and Dorna have done a great job to ensure that we can at least race this year. It cannot have been easy for them. I hope that nothing changes between now and the restart of the season because it has been too long since Round 1 in Australia. I have been training hard and made a couple of shakedown tests to find the feeling again. For the moment Belgian’s still cannot travel to Portugal which may be a problem as we race there so we have to wait and see. Having two races in a weekend will be different but it’s something I have done before when I raced in CEV so I will be ready even though I am not a massive fan of it. If the weekend is perfect then for sure it can be good but when you don’t feel good or you break something on the bike or something just goes wrong you have the potential to lose two races in one weekend. It’s the same for everyone and I understand why the championship has made this new feature to the Supersport classes. I have a great feeling with my team after the two tests in Assen and at Spa Francorchamps and I will be giving it everything when we get to Jerez!”
