“Feeling nicely rejuvenated”
Colin Edwards did not have to travel far to enjoy his holidays after the last round at Laguna Seca, the Texan staying on in his native USA for an extended spell with friends and family.
The break has given Edwards time to reflect on a
tough few races leading up to his home Grand Prix and make plans to improve on a best result of seventh place at Brno, achieved in both 2004 and 2005.
"It's been great to have a decent amount of time at home since Laguna with the family", says Edwards. "I'm coming back feeling nicely rejuvenated and full of energy for the final couple of months. I've put the bad result of Laguna behind me now; obviously I was gutted not to have had a better result at my home race but there is no point dwelling on it. I'm looking forward now and my aim is to get some really good results under my belt between now and Valencia.”
"Everyone's going to be back working at the maximum level and it's going to be good to get going again in Brno.
I didn't have a great race there last year but I made some big steps forward in the test afterwards; this time I plan to do that before the race! I know that we'll all be working hard from Friday morning and be ready to run at the front."
