Alvaro Bautista comes into round six of the WorldSBK championship as the only current rider with prior experience of competing competitively at Autodrom Most. 

The Spaniard last raced at the Czech circuit in the European 125cc championship (2002); ‘but I don’t remember the track well’ confessed Bautista. 

With improvements made to the set-up and electronics of his CBR1000RR-R Fireblade last time out in Assen, consistency will no doubt be the next aim for Bautista after securing his best result of the year - fifth in race two. 

Bautista could have achieved similar results in the two races prior, however, crashes in both left the Team HRC man without points. 

"The last race weekend was something of an uphill climb, but we were gradually able to improve our performance and results by working well on the set-up of the bike, especially on the electronics side," added Bautista.  

"We would like to start from where we left off there and place consistently in the top five right from Friday morning. 

"Let's see; Most is a new track for the Superbikes and we will try to keep improving after Assen. I raced at Most many years ago, in the 125cc European Championship (2002), but I don't remember the track layout very well, just a few points like the first chicane, which is very fast. 

"Anyway, we will all have to get to grips with the track and find our references, and I just hope to work well with my team, find good sensations, and have fun riding my CBR at this track."
