Rizla Suzuki MotoGP is on its way to the Far East for round four of the 2006 MotoGP World Championship, as the team hopes to build on the encouraging performance in Turkey.

Team manager Paul Denning explains that `we are all going to China in a positive frame of mind following the events of the last GP. Chris's performance in the wet was incredible, and then to see both him and John run at the front of the race was very encouraging indeed´.

`We still know that we have a long way to go to get the GSV-R to the highest level and that Shanghai will be a very difficult circuit for us, but we're all focussed on the job in hand and will be working hard as always to get the best results. John really enjoyed it there in 2005 and China is also where he led his first ever GP. Chris will be at the circuit for the first time, but I know he has a fairly laid back view regarding the challenges of learning new course layouts.

`Our riders are clearly capable of being competitive, and that's a big motivation for Suzuki in terms of getting the bike that final step closer to the podium pace´.
