LCR Honda rider Carlos Checa took his first points of the season last time round at Jerez, and will be looking to build on his magnificent performance at the Spanish track when MotoGP returns to action next week in Turkey.

Apart from his result at the last race, Checa will also draw confidence from the fact that Casey Stoner- his predecessor in Lucio Cecchinello's team- took his first Grand Prix podium last year at Istanbul Park. The podium was comprised entirely of Honda riders, something that hasn't gone unnoticed by the Spaniard.

"Michelin did a good job last year and gathered a lot of useful information. Stoner also got a great result for the team," commented Checa to motogp.com. "I think that we have sufficient reason to aim high in Turkey.
