Checa accepts Monza challenge

The Spaniard has been fearing this round after failing to reach the top ten at Monza in 2010.
Carlos Checa says he is feeling buoyant about his chances at Monza, despite previously declaring it to potentially be his and Althea Ducati's toughest circuit on the World Superbike calendar.

The Spaniard's exceptional start to the 2011 season has seen him establish a 43 point lead in the series after just three events – almost a round in hand -, but the long straights of Monza have previously prompted him to admit the twin-cylinder engined 1198 could struggle.

Nonetheless, Checa, who finished 14th and 11th at Monza in 2010, is prepared for the challenge, insisting he will do his utmost to counteract his bike's much discussed speed disadvantage by being aggressive through the bends

"I will face Monza just as I have the other races. Up until now we have had great results and so we won't be changing much technically speaking. This is of course a different kind of track and we will have to work hard to not lose too much ground on the straights.

“There are some difficult sections of track and so we must interpret the circuit well and concentrate on the tough parts. I feel in great shape and am ready to give my all. My team is extremely motivated and with their help I think we can make two great races.”
