Melandri looking forward to second home race

Marco Melandri is setting his sights high as he gets ready for his first Misano appearance as a World Superbike rider.
Marco Melandri believes Misano is the 'perfect track' for him to get his World Superbike Championship title aspirations back on course following a tough weekend at Miller Motorsports Park.

Unlike the previous two rounds at Monza and Miller, Misano is a familiar venue for World Superbike rookie Melandri, the Italian scoring a best MotoGP finish of fourth place in 2007 when the circuit made its debut on the MotoGP calendar.

Indeed, having struggled for race pace in the United States, Melandri is feeling good about his chances on home soil at Misano, particularly now that his Yamaha team have sourced the problems that hampered him last time out.

"I'm delighted to be heading to Misano. It's really near home for me and it's a track I like and I know really well. I've ridden the track many times since I first started riding when I was a kid. I've also always had relatively good results there in the past and I think it's the perfect track where I can get over the difficult weekend I had in the USA and put that behind me.

“The team and I have since had the chance to work out what the problem was in Miller and I'm pretty sure we are heading in the right direction. I'm really looking forward to trying my Yamaha R1, hopefully to our full potential, this weekend in Misano."

Melandri is currently second in the WSBK standings, 61 points behind Carlos Checa.
