Barbera targets improved results at Aragon

Hector Barbera looks to build on his consistent scoring record in MotoGP this season with another good result at Motorland Aragon.
Hector Barbera heads to his third home MotoGP event of the season at Motorland Aragon eager to forge his way further up the order.

Fresh from the announcement he will remain with the Aspar-run Paginas Amarillas Ducati team into 2011, Barbera continued to creep his way up the order at Misano with a sixth top ten finish of the season.

The latest promising result in what has been a consistent season for the rookie rider-team combination, Barbera claims he is enjoying his best form and is now determined to show as much with an even stronger result on home soil.

"I am really looking forward to getting out on track at Motorland. I think the rookies will be at less of a disadvantage than usual because everybody is starting from scratch. I know the Ducati well now and I had the chance to check the circuit out in July so it shouldn't be too difficult for us to adapt. I am in my best form of the season so far and I think I can put on a good show this Sunday.

“Like every race in Spain the home riders will be giving it everything and I am sure it will be an exciting weekend. The objective is to keep improving - we are picking up some good results now but we want even better ones. One way to do that is by improving my starts so that I am not compromised over the first two or three laps."

As well as his consistent scoring record, Barbera has failed to finish just a single race this season.

Damn,I must be getting old,actually agree with you Dray. Hector's had a stellar rookie season and his retirement at Laguna was a result of a broken chain. I believe his Ducati engines are also in the best shape of the bunch. Good on him and hope he beats Simonchelli in the race and in the Championship.
