Sepang: Stoner aims for three-in-a-row

The only rider to win in 125, 250 and MotoGP at Sepang aims to take victory again, as premier class racing heads to Malaysia

"ONE sunny day doesn't make summer" - the response of a Visordown reader to our thoughts that Casey Stoner might be on the way back to the blistering form he displayed in 2007, following his win at Aragon, Spain, just over a fortnight ago.

Having now taken back-to-back wins, following his emphatic victory at Motegi, the young Australian is now eyeing an impressive treble, as the MotoGP paddock heads to Sepang for Round 15 of the 2010 Championship.

The Malaysian track is one of Stoner's favourite venues; the 2007 MotoGP champion is the only rider in history to have won at the 5.5km circuit in 125, 250 and MotoGP classes.

Speaking ahead of the weekend's action, Stoner said:

“Motegi was our biggest question mark about set up and we had to really work hard to make the bike stable for the really heavy braking.  Sepang isn’t too much about that, so we can maybe raise the bike back up again and get our traction a little better and see what happens. But we can hopefully expect to have the bike working well there. We’ve all been giving 120% all season but it’s just these last two races we’re getting something back from it. It’s a huge, huge difference for us. Going into these next two races is a big clump in a small space for us, of course, but if things keep going like they are we definitely have a good chance of doing well again on Sunday.”

We agree, one sunny day doesn't make summer, but when the season's only 18 days long then three sunny days is pretty good going.
