Porto makes Honda return at Jerez

Sebas Porto has joined the official Honda 250cc team which won two consecutive titles in the quarter litre class with Dani Pedrosa, and started his adaptation to the Japanese machine in the three-day test staged this week at the Jerez circuit.

"We are starting to work for next season," said the Argentine. "In the beginning it's mainly about getting used to this version of the bike, it's not the one we will use next year, but it will help us to collect data that we will pass on to Honda before they build the 2006 machine."

Porto previously rode for Honda in 2003 in the very same team managed by Alberto Puig. After a disappointing stint with the Japanese manufacturer, he switched to Aprilia the following year and managed six victories over the past two seasons.
