DUCATI XEROX TEAM BEGINS DOUBLE TEST SESSION AT BRNO

Bologna (Italy), Wednesday 8 June: James Toseland and Regis Laconi of the Ducati Xerox Team begin a double visit to the Czech Republic this week as they hope to maintain the momentum of their recent Silverstone triumph with four days of testing at the famous 5.4 km Brno track.

Two days of private Ducati Corse tests this week on Wednesday and Thursday and two days next week on June 15-16 together with several other WSBK squads will stand the team in good stead for the Czech Republic round of the World Superbike Championship, scheduled to be held in mid-July.

Toseland and Laconi, who both took a victory apiece at Silverstone, giving Ducati its first wins of the year, will also be looking to gain an important advantage on one of the Ducati Xerox Team's two nominated testing circuits, and in view of the next round of the championship, at Misano Adriatico on June 24-26.

The Brno event returns to the World Superbike calendar for the first time since 1996, when both races were won by that year's eventual world champion, Australia's Troy Corser. The 2005 championship leader took the honours on a Promotor Ducati 916, which at the time was run by the current Ducati Xerox team manager Davide Tardozzi.
