  • Teaser Paragraph:

    The Pata Yamaha Official STK1000 Team are raring to go for round five of the 2017 FIM Superstock 1000 European Championship at the picturesque Misano this weekend. Florian Marino will hope to build on his excellent second place last time out at Donington and challenge for the race win. His teammate Roberto Tamburini is looking to return to the podium at his home round, with both riders currently level on points in the championship standings.

Marino rode superbly at Donington to secure his third podium in four races, crossing the line in second less than two seconds behind the race winner. The 24-year-old French rider made a breakthrough with the setup on his R1M at the last round and is feeling confident that there is more to come in the heat at Misano. Marino is currently third in the championship standings with 56 points, just 23 points off the leader.

Tamburini is relishing the chance to ride in front of the passionate Misano fans at his home round. The 26-year-old Italian finished in fourth at Donington and is looking to add to his tally of two podiums so far, this season. He realises the need to work hard from Friday morning in an effort to find a good feeling with his R1M, so that he can push to the maximum during the race. Tamburini is currently fourth in the championship standings, level on 56 points with his teammate.

The Pata Yamaha Official STK1000 Team hit the track at 09:00am on Friday morning for free practice, with qualifying at 15:00pm on Saturday and Sunday's 15-lap race scheduled for 15:15pm.
