He said: "The Brno track will be difficult for us, specially when it comes to the handling of the bike in the slower sections. However, we have gathered some important data during the Vallelunga test and will put some new ideas into practice this weekend. I am confident we can straighten out the issues we have been dealing with and improve our pace."
Team manager Ronald Ten Kate said: "The Brno round is an important one in the Superbike World Championship as we are past the half way mark in the series now. After two disappointing races we need to improve our results and bring some points back home in order to defend our current Superbike World title status. The track in Brno is well suited for our bikes and we should be able to use the full potential of the Honda CBR1000RR to get some important results."
