There will be a different look to the team formerly known as Humangest Honda this weekend, as they make two changes ahead of the Gran Premi bwin.com de Espana.

In a permanent switch for the 2007 season, the team have severed ties with title sponsor Humangest, reverting to their previous moniker of Team Scot in both 125cc and 250cc. The quarter litre lineup of Andrea Dovizioso and Yuki Takahashi continue for the team, anxious for results at Jerez.

"Despite improvements with the Honda, I still suffered the power advantage of the Aprilia bikes," commented 2006 runner-up Dovizioso. "My team is working hard, and at Jerez I will be going all-out. I will not be satisfied with fifth position. At least I know from the test there that I can go fast," he concluded.

Meanwhile, Takahashi's road to recovery continues, with the Japanese rider making great strides to get back to 100% fitness. Finishing seventh in Qatar, Takahashi is optimistic ahead of this weekend's race.

"At the Official test I just tried to improve feeling on the bike, not looking for fast lap times. Now that I am in better shape, and looking back on my result at Losail, I think I can do well at Jerez," stated the 22 year old.

In 125cc, Team Scot bring in rider Dino Lombardi to compete as a wild card in the race, following on from his debut at Istanbul last season. He joins regular rider Mike Di Meglio at one of the latter's favourite tracks.
