Crutchlow vows to make Supersport amends

Cal Crutchlow bids to get back to winning ways at Imola as James Toseland bids to keep potential employers interested in his services for 2011.
Cal Crutchlow is confident he will be fighting for World Superbike honours at Imola as he looks to complete the win he missed out on in the World Supersport category last season.

The Briton, who heads into the final two events of the season safe in the knowledge that he will race in MotoGP next year, was set for a comfortable WSS win in Italy last year but a problem with his Yamaha caused him to crash out of the lead.

One year on and Crutchlow has high hopes of making amends in the Superbike category, while his timesheet topping performance during the mid-season test earlier in the year gives him added confidence.

"I'm really looking forward to this round," he said. "I have unfinished business here from last year, I had a great pole position start in Supersport but crashed out so need to make sure I get a victory here this weekend! I was fastest rider in the test here earlier in the year so I'm confident we can do well."

Left without a ride for 2011 at the moment, James Toseland is hoping the test will help him in his quest to impress potential employers.

"I had a difficult test here earlier in the year. We've come a long way since then and have improved our set up so I'm confident that we can achieve more and be fighting at the front. I'm going to give it 100% as always, I definitely want to be on the podium here."
