This might be the edge Colin needs!
Castrol Honda's World Superbike championship leader Colin Edwards gets his final round preparations under way with a test on Monday at the Imola circuit in Italy _ venue for the final round. Edwards will test the revamped SP-1 machine at the 3.04-mile circuit on Monday September 16 in an effort to be fully prepared for the championship showdown. "It's great that we can get the test time at Imola, since we raced there last year there's a lot changed on the machine _ the chassis, motor, the oil, Michelin tires and Showa suspension," explains Edwards. "In fact, it's a completely different machine to what we raced at Imola 12 months ago," he continues. Championship rules allow teams to select two circuits from the championship calendar, the Castrol Honda team chose Misano and Imola. Team manager Neil Tuxworth commented: "Misano is a good, demanding test track for us and we went for Imola just in case the championship was tight going into the final round."
