Although Team Klaffi Honda secured its best season in the SBK, the Austrian Honda Team will not be present in SBK in the 2007. Team owner and manager Klaus Klaffenböck already considers a possible return to SBK for 2008 with a new package plus exclusive sponsorship. At the moment the Klaffi-Team is preparing for the Isle of Man TT and will therefore soon nominate a top class rider. Klaffi Honda would like to continue working with the partners in this exciting challenge.
Klaus Klaffenböck, Team Manager: "First of all I want to thank all our loyal sponsors and partners for the cooperation in SBK. We reached one victory and five more podium finishes, in overall it was sixth place in the World Superbike Championship. Still it was not possible to secure the necessary budget for 2007. I am open for all future options amongst this is for sure also a possible return to SBK in 2008. I can say that we will not disappear from the motor sport scene at all. Now I am looking forward to the Tourist Trophy. At the forthcoming edition number 100 of the Isle of Man TT our Team will be a contender for the victory in the categories Supersport, Superstock, Superbike and Sidecar. I hope our partners will keep on supporting us within our TT-project. My personal goal there is the sidecar-victory. We will keep on updating you about our activities also in the future."
