Good form continues for Rizla Suzuki MotoGP at Brno test

Rizla Suzuki MotoGP has concluded its two-day test at Brno in the Czech Republic with promising results, following on from the team's excellent GP performance.

John Hopkins and Chris Vermeulen were both eager to get back on track after their impressive displays in last Sunday's race, which saw them finish second and fifth respectively, and the pair got down to a lot of hard work to improve their machines in readiness for the rest of the season.

Hopkins and Vermeulen were joined at the test by Team Test Rider Nobuatsu Aoki, as the three of them put the 800cc Suzuki GSV-R through numerous tests and evaluations of engine specifications, suspension settings and a thorough and comprehensive Bridgestone tyre test in preparation for improving performances at specific circuits later on in the season.

The team were very pleased with the test in general and has acquired valuable data that will be evaluated in Japan before the next race at Misano in Italy on Sunday 2nd September.

Paul Denning -- Team Manager:

"After the excitement of Sunday it was straight back to work for the riders and the rest of the team. The whole test has been very encouraging and we have certainly got a clear indication of the direction to take for the rest of the season. It was great to have Nobu present as he was able to give us another viewpoint on the different items we were testing. We will now look at these results and come back even stronger over the rest of the year, we have shown that the bike and riders are very much in-form at the moment and we are determined to stay that way and make further steps up in the remaining races!"
