Philipp Oettl (Rider):
“It’s the first time in Argentina with the Superbike, but I am confident that we can have a good race weekend. As from the summer break on, I want to continue in the same working direction of the last three races. I will see session after session what happens, and how I feel on the bike. I will have to learn a bit the track again with the Superbike, the would be a bit different compared to the smaller bikes. Here free practices will be really important, but I expect to be in line with my last results and to fight for important positions!”
