2006 RACE RESULTS:

2006 PRE SEASON

VIEWS BEFORE SEASON OPENER:

  • BARROS' SUPERBIKE DEBUT: "I hope to be competitive and to be able to fight for podiums and victories ... Before the Losail round (Round 1) there was only time for some test rides in Sicily, but I was happy with the result. The bikes performed well, the team worked hard and everyone is very enthusiastic - knowing that they have a real chance to fight for victories and good results."
  • TOSELAND SWITCHES TO HONDA: "I've spent a lot of valuable time in pre-season getting time on the new bike (Honda) I think we are nearly there now, largely because of the tests at Almeria and Valencia. I'm looking forward to Qatar, especially with the amount of improvements we have made since the last time we tested there. If we can keep improving like we had been doing in our most recent testing, then it's promising for the race in Qatar."
  • CHILI: "We had a very good test at Qatar recently, even though we did not have access to the same 2006-specification tyres as the Honda guys who tested there in December. We worked a lot with suspension and electronics, and at the end of three days we were quite happy. Maybe we cannot win the championship this year, but if I can make a battle for the podium, help my young team-mate Michel and have fun, then I will be happy."
  • BAYLISS BACK ON SUPERBIKES: "When I first left the Ducati MotoGP team I had the offer of going back to Superbike with Ducati and at that stage I didn’t think I wanted to go back when I had the possibility of a Honda MotoGP ride. But after that experience then the choice to go back was obvious. I again had a chance to be in a great team with a great machine and a sure shot at a world title so it was an extremely easy decision in the end. And after testing the bike and the season drawing upon us I certainly don’t have any regrets in making that decision ... The main priority is going to be Troy Corser as he is the current World Champion and is on a great bike, with a great team and is sure to be consistent. He will be the main man to beat. There are going to be a lot of other guys that will also be strong at certain tracks like my young team-mate Lorenzo Lanzi and perhaps as many as five other riders. With everyone on the same tyres these days it makes it a much closer game all round. Alex Barros should also put in some great rides I expect and could be challenging every weekend if his race package is up to speed.”
