After a successful start to the Bennetts British Superbike championship over Easter bank holiday the Airwaves Ducati team head to Thruxton for round two this weekend.
Having started the season by recording the teams 23rd win since their 2005 return to BSB, they are confident for another good performance at the 2.356 mile Hampshire circuit. Last year the Airwaves Ducati team picked up maximum points at the fast cornering circuit, with Gregorio Lavilla winning both races and team mate Leon Haslam achieving two second place finishes.
Currently lying in 4th in the championship, 2006 championship runner up, Leon Haslam is focusing on putting in a good performance this weekend saying, "I really like Thruxton and having achieved two 2nd places here last year I am confident that I can put in a good performance and challenge for the top podium place. I really want to get a good result there and get my championship campaign back on track."
Gregorio Lavilla took the first 2 points in the Airwaves Speed League in round one and will be looking to better his own lap record of 1m 14.890s at Thruxton to increase his chances of winning £5,000 for his chosen charity. Having also taken an early lead in the championship he is looking to continue his racing form into round two saying, "The Ducati's have a history of good results at Thruxton; even though it is often thought that we may struggle on such a fast circuit, we do well there. I like it as a track although tyre choice will be crucial in our success this weekend. Having done so well at Brands Hatch I am looking forward to it and hopefully I can achieve another couple of wins!"l
Round two of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship starts at Thruxton on Sunday 15th April.
