What's happened to Foggy's team. ???
Yeah BigPhil, have to agree there, the supers have always been
my favorite over the GP's.
Testing has started for Ducati MotoGP already.....
The 33 year old Australian, WSBK champion in 2001 and runner-up this year, who completed 30 laps on the new Ducati prototype, which will make its debut next year in the MotoGP championship, was enthusiastic and satisfied with the work completed today.
“It’s a completely new toy!” declared Troy. “The last few months I’ve been seeing the bike and I’ve wanted to get on it for a long time. It took a while before we got going this morning because it was so foggy and the track was quite wet and we didn’t really start until after lunch.
“We know we’ve got a great big job ahead of us but I’ve enjoyed what we’ve done so far and we’re making pretty good progress already. That’s why we’ve started a week after Imola, we know we’ve got a lot of work ahead of us and that’s what we’re doing. We’ve got plenty of tests before the racing starts but we’re looking forward to it.
“This is not my Superbike for sure!” he added. “It’s very different, much lighter and more powerful, there is nothing from the Superbike on this, we’ve just got to start and learn everything again. Vito has already been testing on it, he’s done a good job, but basically I have to start from scratch and get ready for MotoGP.”
