Rolfo makes good progress with bike set up

Jerez de la Frontera (Cadix) 9 May -- Roberto Rolfo made good progress setting up his bike during the first day of practice in Jerez and has high hopes for the Spanish GP as his machine continues to improve.

The Fortuna Honda rider finished the first day in fifth position, confident that he and his team were getting the best out of his bike, with the chassis and engines changes made during the session bringing encouraging results, despite the less than ideal track conditions.

Commented Roberto Rolfo, "the bike is getting better everyday and this afternoon we made a big improvement with the chassis -- the area which up until now has caused us the biggest problems."

"I believe that we are going in the right direction, though we still have to do some more work on the engine. The track temperature was high this afternoon which made riding more difficult."

"Hopefully by tomorrow afternoon, at the end of the second day of practice, we will have finished setting up the bike and that will allow us to get a good result here in Jerez. It is really important to start the first European round of the championship well."
