DUCATI CORSE PRESS INFORMATION
DUCATI XEROX TEAM BEGINS DOUBLE TEST SESSION AT BRNO
Bologna (Italy), Wednesday 8 June: James Toseland and Rιgis Laconi of the Ducati
Xerox Team begin a double visit to the Czech Republic this week as they hope to
maintain the momentum of their recent Silverstone triumph with four days of
testing at the famous 5.4 km Brno track.
Two days of private Ducati Corse tests this week on Wednesday and Thursday and
two days next week on June 15-16 together with several other WSBK squads will
stand the team in good stead for the Czech Republic round of the World Superbike
Championship, scheduled to be held in mid-July.
Toseland and Laconi, who both took a victory apiece at Silverstone, giving
Ducati its first wins of the year, will also be looking to gain an important
advantage on one of the Ducati Xerox Team's two nominated testing circuits, and
in view of the next round of the championship, at Misano Adriatico on June 24-26.
The Brno event returns to the World Superbike calendar for the first time since
1996, when both races were won by that year's eventual world champion,
Australia's Troy Corser. The 2005 championship leader took the honours on a
Promotor Ducati 916, which at the time was run by the current Ducati Xerox team
manager Davide Tardozzi.
