Airwaves Ducati Aim To Bounce Back To Winning Ways AT snetterton - July 7th 2005

    Airwaves Ducati riders Leon Haslam and Gregorio Lavilla will be aiming for more race victories as the eighth round of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship takes place at Snetterton this weekend. With the series taking a six week break following this weekend, the 25-lap double header at the Norfolk track will represent a great opportunity to close the gap in preparation for the remaining rounds.

    Both riders are feeling extremely comfortable on the Airwaves Ducati 999F04s and are hopeful that they can rise to the challenge provided by their rivals. The super quick 1.95 mile circuit should suit the Ducati machinery and the team are hopeful that they can return to winning ways following a hard fought set of results at Knockhill two weeks ago.

    Airwaves Ducati Team Manager, Colin Wright, was looking forward to the challenge of the weekend: "Everyone is aware that this is Honda's nominated track so they will know the circuit and should be quick. This presents us with a challenge that I know the whole team will relish. With each round that goes by, we can try new ideas and new settings to try and get the bikes running quicker and we'll be aiming for victories this weekend".

    Gregorio, who will be experiencing the circuit for the first time, said: "I'm looking forward to getting to Snetterton on Friday and working hard in preparation for the weekend. I will need to put a lot of work in as always to learn the track and then hopefully progress from there. I've been told it's quite a straightforward track and very quick so hopefully we can get as much as possible from the bike to challenge for victories".

    Leon was upbeat about his chances at the track: "I've got good memories of Snetterton as a track having raced here on a 600cc so I will be aiming for a good result. In wet or dry conditions, I know we have a good package for this type of circuit and the Ducati should go well around here. It's important we have a good session on Friday and then we will be prepared for the weekend. I've been training really hard since the last round at Knockhill and I can't wait to get racing again".

    The eighth round of the BSB Championship at Snetterton, near Norwich, starts with two free practice sessions on Friday 8th July, followed by two qualifying sessions on Saturday 9th July and two 25-lap races on Sunday 10th July.
