Badovini encouraged after Mugello shakedown

'I am continuing with my usual training and preparation programme at home and aim to take two good results in the UK – I'm feeling confident' - Ayrton Badovini
Alstare Ducati's Ayrton Badovini says he is 'feeling confident' for this weekend's World Superbike showdown at Donington Park after a beneficial test at Mugello.

Badovini, who will be joined by the returning Carlos Checa and wildcard rider Niccolo Canepa in the UK, tested new traction control settings on the Panigale 1199R at the Italian venue, yielding 'encouraging results'.

“The day's testing that we completed at Mugello was very useful and I hope we'll be able to confirm the work done there on track at Donington,” he said.

“I can finally say that I feel fit once more, after physical problems through the first part of the season.

“I am continuing with my usual training and preparation programme at home and aim to take two good results in the UK – I'm feeling confident.”

Your auto-start crash net TV is incredibly irritating. I view 12 news items often and have to stop the player 11 times. I may soon be seeking another source of motorsport news.
