Tommy Hill – Superbike : ”Kyalami Grand Prix circuit is another track that I don't know at all, so again we will have to learn as we progress through the weekend in order to arrive at the best set-up for the races. I haven't heard too much about the track but the layout looks good and I’m fully fit and ready for South Africa”.
Mark Aitchison – Supersport : ” I am really looking forward to beginning the South Africa race weekend, as I want to make up for the bad result during the Monza race. I am determined to gain some valuable points during the race in order to improve my position in the championship standings. We have the bike working really well and I hope we find a good setting for the South Africa Circuit."
Matthieu Lagrive – Supersport : “I came away from the last round in Monza extremely disappointed and so I'm hoping to have a much more positive weekend in Kyalami. The track is new for us but we know the bike has a very good level of performance and we are confident we can find soon a good set-up for the race weekend”.
