Checa in for Suzuka 8 Hours

Whilst the majority of the MotoGP riders will have a short rest before heading to Sachsenring, Carlos Checa is filling his days with yet more on-track action, courtesy of testing for the Suzuka 8 Hours race.

The experienced Spaniard will be representing Honda at the prestigious endurance event, which he enters for the second time this year. The race takes place in the last week of July, just a week after the Red Bull US Grand Prix at Laguna Seca.

"The Japanese are very proud of this race, and I share their excitement in being able to take part here," says Checa. "It will be my second time riding at the Suzuka 8 Hours, and I am confident that I can do well there. I feel good on the bike that we will be using."

Other names in the hat for the race include British Superbike riders Jonathan Rea and Ryuichi Kiyonari.
