The Honda Pons team

The Honda Pons team will head to Sepang later this week to join the majority of Japanese factory teams for a three-day test held in Malaysia, starting next Monday. Although the team has still to secure the budget necessary to race in 2006, team principal Sito Pons is already pressing ahead with plans for the new season and confirmed that Carlos Checa and Casey Stoner are likely to spearhead his team's effort next year.

“We still have to confirm a sponsor and the way the team will work next year,” said Pons. “But even if there are still a few details to iron out, it shouldn’t affect our project, so we are continuing to prepare for next season.”

“We plan to line up Checa and Stoner next year, and I'm pretty confident about the fact that we will find a solution shortly. I'm sure we will be able to confirm our 2006 plans pretty soon.”

Checa and Stoner both tested with the Honda Pons team after the end of this year's championship at the Ricardo Tormo circuit near Valencia. Pons is looking forward to linking up with Checa again, with the Spaniard having made his debut in the premier class with the Spanish-based outfit back in 1995.

“It's great to work again with Checa after so many years, it's very satisfying. With Carlos we moved up from the 250cc class to the 500cc class and we won two races before he had that serious accident in England,” recalled Pons. “After that, I don't think he was able to make the most of the opportunities he had and was never in a situation where he could demonstrate his full potential. I believe that with him we can set high aims, win again and play a major part in the championship.”

he has shocked a few people by how quick he was first time out on the bike. hes happy with the rear spinning, something that gave him a bit of trouble with the 250, which highsided him more than a few times. yamaha has got to be kicking themselves. they stuffed around and sito jumped straight in there. glad he's on a honda. vermuelen is flying aswell on that suzuki. two aussies with a big future!looking forward to it.
