Stoner faces the unusual challenge



Casey Stoner faces the unusual challenge of racing in Japan at the front end of the FIM MotoGP World Championship season but hopes to repeat past successes at Motegi on Sunday.

The Ducati Marlboro rider stands at the top of the points table after winning the opening round in Qatar.
"I have always thought that the track is more suited to car racing than bikes, with so many hard-braking and acceleration points, but in general I don't dislike it and if you have a good set-up it can be really fun," said Stoner.

Stoner dominated at Losail in a race which had to be delayed a day when heavy rain meant the circuit was dangerous because of reflected glare from the floodlights used for the night-time race.

Stoner, who has had podium finishes in all three classes - 125cc, 250cc and MotoGP - at Motegi also won the MotoGP title at the circuit in 2007.
But this season the event will be at the other end of the race calendar.

Stoner added: "We haven't tested here in pre-season whereas we had in Qatar, so we'll see how we get on starting from zero, with less practice time available."
Stoner and his rivals have to cope with less track time because of new regulations aimed at reducing costs during the global economic downturn.

He added: "I'm fairly confident, the set-up we found in testing has worked well at different kinds of circuits so we should have a decent base setting to work from at Motegi.
"In any case, we won't take anything for granted - we'll keep working hard together and stay focused."

It has been the longest two weeks ever.


Hopefully this race will have some racing in it.

I always look forward to the new racing year. Generally half way I get a bit jaded and turn over and watch the golf if the races get boring.
