CHARPENTIER READY FOR LAST GREAT CHALLENGE

Sebastien Charpentier and the Winston Ten Kate Honda team now look to Magny Cours, the last round of the Supersport World Championship, for their latest great challenge - to secure the Supersport world title for the fifth time in a row. Charpentier is some way behind Curtain, the championship leader at this moment, but with the Charpentier everyone saw in Imola, nothing is impossible. That performance was also possible thanks to the Honda CBR600RR and Charpentier's team-mate, Kenan Sofuoglu, who will once more be trying to help the title fight by scoring another podium.

Ronald Ten Kate -- Team Manager

"After the great results achieved at Imola, we are hoping to have another important result in France, and see where Sebastien's rival Kevin Curtain will finish the race. I am very happy about how the team is working before this important final race of the season and I am sure, however it turns out, that everybody will give their best. Sebastien has demonstrated that he is back to great form again. Also, Kenan is living up to his great potential, he has found the right direction to work in, and he now totally understands the Honda CBR600RR. We are looking forward to Magny Cours."

"In Imola we had a fantastic race. It was good to run away from the rest of the riders with my team-mate. In Magny Cours it will be another race, difficult of course, but we will give our best, as usual. I feel good again and this is very important: it has been a hard time for me after the injury and trying to get back in shape. Now I can say I am back. And this is thanks to the support of everyone, my family and my team. Magny Cours will be my home race and I am hoping to have many supporters cheering for me. I will try not to disappoint them."

Kenan Sofuoglu -- Winston Ten Kate Honda Rider

"These last few races have been fantastic for me. I am really enjoying riding for the Winston Ten Kate Honda Team. It is a big family; everybody is always ready to help each other. The race at Imola went well, I am happy Sebastien has reduced his gap to Curtain and he still has another opportunity in Magny Cours next weekend. My goal is, as always, to reach the podium and this is what I will aim for in the French race. I am feeling good and I am only sad that the season is about to finish so soon."
