TEAM ALSTARE LOOKING FOR A CHANGE OF FORTUNE.

Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra left Assen with little to show for all their effort, but are looking forward to this weekend's races at Lausitz and a change of fortune. It has been a bit of an up and down ride in recent races for Troy Corser and Yukio Kagayama and both are eager to finish the last three rounds of the championship strongly, starting at Lausitz. The Eurospeedway Lausitz is a relatively new facility and originally built for 'Nascar' style car races. It is tri-oval in design, but with an infield section for bikes and conventional car racing.

TROY

Last year in Lausitz was a bit mixed - one podium and one crash. But at least I was able to pick up the bike after the crash and get into the points, not like last weekend in Assen! It is a strange feeling to have two DNF's in a weekend and it's something I certainly don't want in Lausitz. It's not a particularly difficult track to learn and I hope we don't have any rain because it is very slippery when it's wet. The water doesn't drain away quickly and standing water is a big problem - as we found out last week! I will be aiming for two podiums in Lausitz - anything less will feel like a failure.

YUKIO

Last year, I took a fifth and a fourth in Lausitz, so my plan is to improve on those results. Assen was very difficult for all of us, so I am hoping that Lausitz will be dry. It is a not a good place to race in the wet, because the grip is not good. My success in Brno now seems a long memory and I want to repeat those good results with more podiums. If all goes well in qualifying, I think it will be possible at Lausitz.
