Reflecting on a glorious campaign Del Torchio commented: 2007 has been a fantastic year. We won the MotoGP title track with Casey Stoner and were the best team and we won the Superstock world title with Niccolo Canepa with a virtually standard model bike.

We couldnt have hoped to do better and yet 2007 will be remembered as turning point as we look towards 2008 with optimism.
