ALSTARE DUO SET FOR SILVERSTONE

The fifth round of the 2005 Superbike World Championship takes place at Silverstone circuit in England. The Northamptonshire track has hosted the event twice before, but this year the layout will be different to previous years. A slightly shorter circuit (3.561 kilometres) will be used and fans will see the competitors complete eight more laps then before. Both Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra riders Troy Corser and Yukio Kagayama are looking forward to the two races on Sunday and are eager to maintain their 1-2 positions in the championship.

TROY CORSER I am not sure why they have changed the layout unless it is to do with safety issues. There were a couple of so-so spots on the track, so maybe they have changed the layout because of them. I quite like Silverstone except for the final chicane which is just plain crazy and far too slow. My results last year were not bad, so I am really looking forward to racing at Silverstone on the Alstare Suzuki GSX-R1000 and taking a couple of podiums.

YUKIO KAGAYAMA

Unusually it seems I may be one of the few riders who has raced this layout at Silverstone before. I think I have raced this layout in the past two years in the British Superbike championship. It is quite different to the full circuit, but I like it and, as I have been on the podium there in my first BSB season, it has good memories for me. I was disappointed to DNF in the second race at Monza in the last round and I want to make up for that with a pair of podium finishes in Silverstone. I have many fans in Britain and so it is a bit like a 'home' race for me. I think the Alstare Suzuki GSX-R1000 will be a good bike for Silverstone and maybe this time I can get the better of my team mate, Troy-san.
