Edwards 'loves' Donington

This weekend's British Grand Prix at Donington Park will have special significance for Monster Yamaha Tech 3 team-mates Colin Edwards and James Toseland.

Edwards, the top satellite rider with fifth in the world championship, 'loves' the British circuit, which is where he took his first grand prix podium in 2004 and another runner-up finish in 2007, from pole position.

The Texan qualified fifth and finished fourth last season and will surely be aiming for his first podium of the year during MotoGP's final Donington visit before a 2010 switch to Silverstone.

“Now we go to Donington, which is a place that I love,” said Edwards. “I've had some success there in MotoGP and I'll be looking to get closer to the front for all my guys at Monster Yamaha Tech 3, who have worked so hard.”

Toseland's first home grand prix was effectively over when he fell at the very first turn of last year's event, something he is determined to make amends for this season.

“I was satisfied with another top ten finish in Germany and I'm looking forward to my home race at Donington,” he began. “It has given me a bit of a boost and I'll be looking to make amends for the disappointment of last year when I didn't make it through the very first corner. The support of the British fans is humbling and they have stuck with me through a very difficult year.”

Edwards has taken a best finish of fourth so far this year, Toseland sixth.
