Checa eager to reunite with Forcada

Lining up as part of a new team next season, Carlos Checa can still count on the presence of some familiar faces in the LCR Honda team. Chief Mechanic Ramon Forcada will be reunited with his fellow Spaniard in 2006, having been linked with a move to World Superbikes with Alex Barros before the Brazilian made his shock return to the MotoGP fold with Pramac d'Antin.

"I am very much looking forward to working with Ramon again," explained Checa on his personal website. "I want to adapt to the Honda RC212V and the Michelin tyres as soon as possible, working alongside my good friend who will be very important next season. Lucio Cecchinello is also someone I get on well with, and to be in his team strongly motivates me. With all this in mind, I think that there is a good foundation for a bright future, one which will start in a few days time at Sepang."
