Loris Capirossi looks for more Motegi success
The veteran Italian has won the last three races at the Japanese GP while riding for Ducati, and though he is now campaigning a factory GSV-R machine for Suzuki, he remains confident he can be challenging at the front.
Capirossi, who slumped to 16th in a rain-lashed inaugural Indy race earlier this month, said: “I have great memories from Motegi, I have won the last three races there and it will be good to go back and try to do my best again – especially now that I am riding for a Japanese factory on its home track.
"We had a tough time at Indianapolis for a number of reasons, but that is now behind us and we have to make the most of the rest of the season and Motegi is a good place to start that. I can still fight with the best guys out there and that has to be my goal!”
