Kawasaki riders Shinya Nakano and Alex Hofmann will benefit from a successful test of a revised traction control system today at Donington Park, venue for tomorrow's British Grand Prix.

With the pair qualifying down in twelfth and fifteenth, the team are hoping that endurance will help their riders advance up the order - and the revised traction control system is said to help produce a more rider friendly throttle control.

"The latest update to the traction control system should make 30 laps here less stressful for the riders," said team technical director Ichiro Yoda.

In a recent Q&A with Crash.net viewers, John Hopkins revealed that his Suzuki doesn't have traction control... Hopkins qualified tenth today.
