WSBK – Fonsi Nieto in DFX Corse

After subbing for injured Max Neukirchner in Alstare Suzuki for three rounds, Fonsi Nieto will be back in the WSBK championship, this time with the DFX Corse.
Nieto, who didn’t find a team for the 2009 season has been picked up by Daniele Carli, DFX Corse team manager, and the Spanish rider will be at Imola for the official Superbike tests, this Wednesday and Thursday.

Nieto’s best result in six races with Alstare Suzuki team was a 12th place in race 2 at Misano, was replaced at the Donington round, when Kevin Schwantz backed american rider Blake Young with the Belgium manager.
Matteo Baiocco, after his PSG-1 team pulled out of the championship due to economic woes and his excellent second place in the CIV race at Mugello was on the short list of riders available to DFX, but Carli preferred Nieto and in an extremely blunt and honest way said why, also hinting that Lorenzo Lanzi, Regis Laconi’s replacement rider is in danger of losing his place in the team if he doesn’t get a decent result.

“We simply prefered Nieto because he brings us money.
Let’s hope that Lorenzo has a good result a Brno, because if he doesn’t, its useless to continue, each round costs us 20,000 euros and we can’t waste them to bring home DNF’s”.
