WSBK Donington Park, UK: Confident Hayden: Sepang win is old news

Nicky Hayden says he won't spend any resting on the success of his maiden World Superbike race victory last time out at Sepang.
Nicky Hayden says he won't spend any resting on the success of his maiden World Superbike race victory last time out at Sepang and is confident of carrying over his feeling with the Honda to Donington Park.

The American rider became the 16th racer in history to win both a 500cc/MotoGP and World Superbike race two weeks ago in Malaysia, while it was his first world championship win since his title-winning campaign in 2006.

Despite his obvious joy, Hayden says his charge starts all over again at Donington Park and is keen to maintain his feeling and momentum with the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP from Sepang.

“We obviously come from a good result in Sepang but that's old news now,” Hayden said. “We are now fully focused on Donington and on the races ahead, and we hope to be as competitive as we were in Malaysia in both dry and wet conditions, because I felt really great on the Honda last time out.

“I raced at Donington in the early years of my MotoGP career and, apart from a small modification to the Fogarty Esses, the track is basically the same. I hope we'll get a good start on Friday, prepare well for the two races ahead and then see what we can do.”

Hayden's Sepang race two victory saw him rise back to sixth in the World Superbike championship standings and just three points off Aruba.it Racing Ducati's Davide Giugliano.
