James Toseland is desperate to end his maiden MotoGP season on the best note possible as he returns to the familiar Valencia circuit for the final round of the year.
After his star turn in the Australian Grand Prix, an accident at Sepang last weekend has put Toseland's hopes of ending the year inside the top ten overall in jeopardy.
Currently he is classified 11th overall but is now 11 points adrift from Loris Capirossi heading into the season finale around the popular Ricardo Tormo circuit.
On the plus side, Valencia was the scene of one of his eight wins in the World Superbike Championship last season, a fact that is putting Toseland in a positive frame of mind.
“I'm just putting the Malaysia crash behind me and looking forward to the final race of the season at Valencia. I know the Spanish circuit quite well, so I'm going there feeling positive.
"My first MotoGP season has been an amazing learning curve for me and I want to end on a high with a good result in Valencia.”
