Author: HM Plant Honda Press Release
Posted on: Thursday, Apr 28 2005

Michael Rutter is facing the Cheshire circuit with renewed confidence following a double victory at his home track of Mallory Park for round three of the worlds leading domestic series. The 31-year-old HM Plant Honda Racing rider is keen to maintain and extend his lead at the top of the championship standings.

His Japanese team-mate Kiyonari unfortunately missed out on both legs of the championship at the Leicestershire circuit after an early highside in race one. However, the 21-year-old is planning to race at Oulton Park, despite some pain in his right ankle the result of a chipped bone sustained in last weekends accident.

Michael Rutter: Im really revved up for Oulton Park. The HM Plant Honda Racing team as a whole has had a fantastic season so far and were aiming to ensure that continues. Ive made no secret of my desire to secure the title this year and I know Im going to have to work really hard to cement my lead over the next ten rounds particularly with Kiyo as a team mate!

Ryuichi Kiyonari: Im feeling a little beaten up at the moment. My ankle is sore and my left ankle is also still hurting from [an accident at] Thruxton, but I hope that wont stop me from challenging for more race wins. I hurt my collarbone at Oulton Park last year, so Im hoping for a bit more luck there this season.
