The JiR Team gets ready for the long Far Eastern transfer of three race weekends in a row. We start on Sunday October 3rd with the GP of Motegi, this is the replacement date which was cancelled at the beginning of the season. This is an important appointment for the Team as it is very close to the chassis supplier TSR that for this round will give a further riding opportunity to development rider Yusuke Teshima. Both riders, Simone Corsi and Alex De Angelis have trained hard for this long time away and are anxious to take some good results before the end of the season.

Simone Corsi
"I'm expecting three very intense weeks, also ones that have a strong influence on the end of the season. There are only five races left and we need to 'shoot all our bullets on target'. I feel good the continuous progression we registered lately gives me hope. Besides, here in Motegi we will have the chance of sharing information with TSR's technicians. We've done a good job so far, we only need to climb the two missing podium steps."

Alex De Angelis
"I'm happy for how things are proceeding: I have good relations with the team and I have managed to establish a good feeling with the MotoBI since the very beginning, we only missed a little bit of luck. I still need to ride more to be able to give direction to the team. I need to try all the different combinations that I'm missing and that I'm sure could help give us some improvements, this is why here in Motegi we will continue with little set-up modifications. We all will try our best, I'm sure of this."
