Team co-owner, Ben Henry: “Wakefield Park is short lap compared to some tracks we go to, but it’s a really challenging track all the same. We need to give Bryan a bike that will handle the bumps but also manage heavy braking and acceleration, especially out of the last corner to create a fast lap.”

“We’ve had one day at the circuit with Bryan on the Panigale V4 R in testing and we line up against riders like (Troy) Herfoss who have done an incredible amount of laps here, so it will be a challenge but we have a great team of people here in DesmoSport Ducati and I’m confident we can challenge for race wins. Although we did get that day of testing in, we’ll start Friday with the bike setup as it was from Queensland Raceway and take appropriate steps in Friday testing to finetune the Panigale V4 R.”

"I actually love coming to Goulburn. It's a great town and a really friendly community, especially towards motorcycle and bicycle riders." said Staring.

Bryan Staring: “I actually love coming to Goulburn. It’s a great town and a really friendly community, especially towards motorcycle and bicycle riders, so it’s great to get back there this weekend. It’s going to be challenging, but then every race weekend this year is challenging because of the competition and the limited time I’ve had on the Ducati at each track. I think it’s pretty obvious looking at my results and lap times this year that I feel really good on the Panigale V4 R and I’m happy in the environment Ben and Troy have built within the team. We just need to keep our heads down, make good decisions and I’m confident that I will be where I need to be come Sunday afternoon.”

Team co-owner, Troy Bayliss: “The team’s doing a great job to get Bryan up to speed on the bike and even though he’s showing good speed it takes time to learn just how far you can push the Panigale V4 R at each track. So, I think we’ll keep seeing progression in the way he rides and how Ben and Byron set up the bike to suit and Bryan will only get stronger as the season goes on. Talking to the guys, there’s definitely some quiet confidence and Oli and I will be watching in between sessions here in Assen this weekend.”
