Airwaves Ducati saw their lead in the Bennetts British Superbike Championship slip away due to Ryuichi Kiyonari taking a double race win while Gregorio Lavilla finished sixth in race one and suffered a break down in race two. They now need to get their championship back on track and they hope to do that at Mondello Park in the Republic of Ireland as Colin Wright, team manager, told Crash.net Radio......

Question:
Real mixed day for Airwaves Ducati, what happened to Greg in race two?

Colin Wright:
I can tell you that he stopped! All I can say at the minute is we have found the cause of the problem to be an electrical fault. The problem is as I'm sure you can appreciate, the Ducati is full of electronics now and it is very difficult to pin point the reason for the stoppage. It was an electrical problem that caused fuel starvation, to actually establish what and why and how is going to take some time. Obviously we are all devastated for Greg for the second race.

Q:
How did things go for Leon?

CW:
Not too bad, I think he is certainly pleased that he got two point scoring finishes. Getting on the podium in the first race was good for him, but we always knew that we were going to have major competition here with the Hondas because as everybody knows now the four cylinder machines have come on really strong and we knew it would happen. We are not too disheartened about it, as it was just something that was going to happen.

Q:
The next round is Mondello Park, will that favour the Ducatis?

CW:
Again we have had good results there and I don't see any reason why that shouldn't continue. It is probably a little bit more technical than Snetterton and of course that should help not just with the Ducati but also with Greg and Leon. They prefer a circuit with a little more riding ability required.

Q:
You've got a bit of a break before Mondello, do you have any testing planned?

CW:
No we have no need to test at the minute. We have the same bike same tyres same everything. The only thing we will do is take stock and put our wrongs right .
