Team Honda Racing confident after practice at Hidden Valley
Team Honda Racing reports strong progress and a positive direction after Australian Superbike Practice yesterday at Hidden Valley Raceway in Darwin, N.T, for Round 6 of the Australian Superbike Championship.

The Honda riders are both confident of strong results this weekend and Jamie Stauffer believes the changes made to the Honda CBR1000RR since the double-header at Sydney have greatly improved the feeling of the bike for him.

Stauffer recorded the 3rd fastest lap of the day yesterday; a 1:07.496 sec and was just .3 sec off the fastest lap of the 2 practice sessions.

‰ÛÏPractice was good yesterday. We‰Ûªve definitely moved forward from the last event and we are making progress with the bike and getting more speed from it. I feel there are really only a couple of areas on the track that we need to get a little bit more from and we will be racing at the front. The mechanics have made some minor changes overnight so we‰Ûªll see how qualifying goes today.‰Û

Josh Hook is also optimistic about the races ahead this weekend, recording the 5th fastest lap time of Superbike Practice.

‰ÛÏThe first practice session yesterday was really good and even after making a small change to the bike using a 2nd hand tyre we saw a really big improvement. We tried something different for the 2nd practice session on a new tyre and it gave us some good information although it did not help my lap times a lot. Still, the information has given the mechanics a clear direction going into tomorrow so I am looking forward to qualifying and securing a strong place on the grid for the races.‰Û
