Carlos Checa says: "In the morning we tried to adapt the bike to the situation but during the race it was sliding around a lot," declared the privateer Spaniard, who is still the leading Ducati rider in the standings after two-thirds of the season is over. "I tried to push to take as many championship points as possible but now my head is already focused on Silverstone, a great track, rich in history, on which we will try to race to the front."Shane Byrne, who had suffered a nasty gash in his left hand in a pre-Brno testing crash at the Imola, fulfilled his initial objective to finish in the top ten. The British World SBK rider, who as far back as 2003 scored a sensational double win at the Brands Hatch WSB round, is now concentrating on getting a good result again in front of his home fans. Shane Byrne says: "Now I’m banking on getting fully fit so I can be totally prepared for Silverstone. No-one has ridden on the new track yet and this could be an interesting factor as far as the races are concerned."
