Poncharal optimistic after strong Tech3 showing

Hervé Poncharal has expressed his optimism for the 2006 season following a string of good results for his team, including those of Carlos Checa, one of the standout riders in the MotoGP Official Test.

"Since he has been with us, Carlos has earned great results" explained Poncharal. "He was already near the official Yamaha's during his first test in Qatar, and this week he is in tremendous form and we still can't believe it. We have now raised our goals, whilst at the same time keeping our feet on the ground. It's important to remember that we're still in preseason and the results are relative. However it looks like we have everything required for a great season" said the Tech3 Yamaha boss, who talked through the team's evolution throughout preseason and set out goals for 2006 in an interview with motogp.com in English.
