David Salom is looking forward to returning to World Superbike action at Miller Motorsports Park after recovering from a shoulder injury. The Spaniard missed the Donington Park meeting after suffering the fracture at Monza and although he isn't 100% fit, is determined to race on Monday.
“I'm ready to race in Salt Lake City. I have been training a lot in the gym and my shoulder fracture has improved a great deal. I'm still feeling some pain but this will not prevent me from racing. My main aim for the race weekend is to get the bike working consistently. If we can do this and understand the important parts of the Miller racetrack, then I think we can put the Pedercini Kawasaki further up in the results table”.
Like his Pedercini Kawasaki teammate, Leandro Mercado will be racing in Salt Lake City for the first time and the Argentinian is expecting the circuit to suit him.
“The Miller track will be a completely new experience for me, I've heard it is a very fast track and this is the kind of circuit that I like. I hope to be able to learn the track quickly and soon be competitive. I wasn’t happy with the result at Donington Park so I want to have a really good race result in the U.S.A. this weekend”.
