Airwaves Ducati return to racing refreshed after a four week break in the season, when they visit Mondello Park, for round 6 of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship.

The team have not raced at the twisting Irish circuit since 2005, as last years race was cancelled due to heavy rain flooding the track, but Gregorio Lavilla and Leon Haslam are confident they can achieve a good result at the technically challenging circuit.

Lavilla holds the Mondello Park lap record with a time of 1m 40.076secs and having qualified 3rd there last year, he is confident that he can secure some valuable championship points and pull in Kiyonari's 11 point championship lead.

"I am really looking forward to getting back to the racing this weekend, it has been a nice break but I am keen to get back out there and start working on regaining the championship lead," he said, "Obviously, due to the bad weather, we did not race at Mondello last year but I won there in 2005, so even though it is not a favourite track of mine I am confident that we can get a good result."

Haslam is also keen to get back on track saying, "I can't wait for Mondello; the circuit has been resurfaced and improved so I am looking forward to testing that out. It is a good track for racing, so I was gutted that we couldn't race there last year because of the conditions, but hopefully we won't have that problem again this year! When we last raced there in 2005 Greg and I got our first one-two so I am confident we can perform well this weekend. My aim is to qualify well and then I will be pushing for a podium place finish and maybe my first win of the season."
