Silverstone Managing Director Richard Phillips flew out to the Spanish Grand Prix this week to lend his support to the eight British riders competing in the 2011 FIM MotoGP World Championship.

Ben Spies will join fellow Texan Colin Edwards on the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 team in 2010, forming an all-American rider lineup. It’s the first time Americans will team up for a full season in the premier class since 2005, when Kenny Roberts Jr. and John Hopkins paired for Suzuki.

"I’ve never really had a result worth a damn there (Brno), be it in Superbike or MotoGP. I’ve always thought of myself as a good chicane rider, but there it’s just chicane after chicane after chicane. We’ll have to change that this year. It’s about momentum. I don’t know about shortening the bike up. Usually you shorten it up, and your mid-corner speed might drop a little bit. We might run with what we’ve got. What we had at Donington seemed to be in the right direction. I think we got some more information, as well.
