The Moriwaki Althea Honda Team is preparing for the Spanish round of the WorldSBK season, set to take place at the Jerez circuit this weekend. The squad will field former 250cc/Moto2 rider and current All Japan Road Race JSB1000 rider Yuki Takahashi alongside Ryuichi Kiyonari, since Leon Camier is still recovering from the injury to his left shoulder, sustained during the Imola Superpole session.
The Brit is keen to be back on his bike as soon as possible but his recovery, although going well and precisely as expected for ligament damage, still requires a little more time.
The Japanese duo have already taken part in a two-day testing session at Misano last week, and despite some bad weather drastically reducing the available dry track time, they were still able to work on the set-up of their CBR1000RR bikes and gain more valuable experience in the saddle.
As usual, the race weekend will get underway with the first free practice session on Friday morning at 10:30 local time (CET).
