David Checa shares his motorhome with Alex de Angelis

Spanish rider David Checa has been sharing motorhomes with team-mate and 125cc competitor, Alex De Angelis. Checa let De Angelis use his vehicle at the Gran Premio Marlboro de Espana which took place in Jerez two weeks ago, and the San Marino rider has now brought his motorhome to the latest round of the championship in Le Mans.

Checa explained the interchanging of vehicles. ´Alex and I have built up a great friendship despite not knowing each other that well before this season. He told me that he would have problems getting his motorhome to Jerez, and so I let him use mine. He has returned the favour here, and it´s worked really well. However, in the next two races we won\\\'t be sharing because his family are coming to Mugello and mine to Catalunya. The whole thing has been a positive experience though and has helped to build our friendship´.
