Baldolini Pleased with Phillip Island Progress

Lorini Honda rider Alex Baldolini declared himself satisfied after 2 days of official World Supersport testing at Phillip Island, Australia.

The former 250cc, Moto2 and WSS podium finisher switched from Triumph to Honda during the winter and has had little testing aboard his new machine.

The likeable Italian ended the final test sessions in 12th position overall and is confident that he can improve in qualifying ahead of the opening round of the championship on Sunday.

"Today was better. We made some more changes and I improved my time from yesterday within 3 laps. On my final lap today I was going pretty fast but there was some traffic which meant I didn't improve again. I am confident that we can go faster and I am looking forward to qualifying and the race." commented Alex.

Speaking after agreeing terms Alex had this to say: “I’m very happy to join forces withLorini Team next season and to take part in the 2013 season on board the Honda CBR600RR. I want to thank Honda Italia and Lorini brothers for having trust in me to ride such a competitive bike. Last sunday I could test the bike at Vallelunga for a few laps and I’m really happy with the bike and the team. I can’t wait to be in Phillip Island to test the bike again and begin the new season.”

7th Overall in the World Supersport Championship for Baldolini

IMG 5816-700x250

The rain may have stopped but the track was still very much wet when the final round of the 2012 World Supersport championship got underway at the Magny Cours circuit in France earlier today.

From the start, Alex Baldolini maintained his qualifying position of tenth on lap one and then set about challenging the riders ahead.


As the track dried, the Suriano Triumph rider looked more and more comfortable and was soon battling with Gabor Talmasci for 6th. Alex followed the Hungarian for a couple of corners before passing the former 125cc World Champion and over the next 5 laps was quick enough to open up a 3 second gap, leaving him in a secure 6th position.


With Sheridan Morais finishing 14th, the result today maintains Alex Baldolini in 7th position overall in the World Supersport Championship in his debut season.

Baldolini salvages Top Ten in Magny Cours Qualyfying

13 Portimao GB47584-700x250

Suriano Triumph rider Alex Baldolini will line up 10th on the final World Supersport Championship grid of 2012 tomorrow after a last lap push saw him improving his lap time significantly in final qualifying earlier today.

The Magny-Cours circuit in France is the 3rd circuit in a row that the Italian rider has never ridden at which makes his grid position even more impressive.

The weather conditions yesterday restricted Alex's ability to find a competitive setup and a small crash in the opening dry session also hampered him early on in the weekend.

The final qualifying session saw Alex again working hard on setup and his final lap was executed perfectly to ensure that the likeable Italian will be in a strong position to consolidate 7th overall in the World Championship standings in his debut year in the World Supersport Category.

Tomorrow's race will run over 20 laps and is due to start at 1330 local time.

Results: 1. Parkes (Honda) 1'41.545 average 156.380 kph; 2. Foret (Kawasaki) 1'41.742; 3. Cluzel (Honda) 1'41.886; 4. Sofuoglu (Kawasaki) 1'41.937; 5. Lowes (Honda) 1'41.943; 6. Talmacsi (Honda) 1'42.108; 7. Morais (Kawasaki) 1'42.265; 8. Iannuzzo (Triumph) 1'42.440; 9. Roccoli (Yamaha) 1'42.454; 10. Baldolini (Triumph) 1'42.499; 11. Linfoot (Kawasaki) 1'42.577; 12. Quarmby (Honda) 1'42.630; 13. Marino (Kawasaki) 1'42.684; 14. Leonov (Yamaha) 1'42.714; 15. Metcher (Yamaha) 1'42.725; 16. Scholtz (Honda) 1'42.829; 17. Debise (Honda) 1'42.952; 18.
