Matador Checa in favourite Miller arena

The reigning World Superbike champion Carlos Checa will be returning to one of his favourite tracks on the Superbike calendar this weekend hoping that a similar performance to the ones he has produced since the track's inauguration in 2008 will bring the Spaniard back into the midst of a thrilling 2012 title battle.

After five rounds Carlos currently lies in fourth place in the championship behind Biaggi, Sykes and Rea, his championship aspirations suffering a momentary setback with two disappointing results at Donington. But Checa's past results at Miller Motorsports Park speak for themselves and the two double wins and a second place finish over the last four years will stand him in good stead for this Monday's race.

Checa said: "I have always enjoyed the atmosphere at Miller, the people, the mountains, the layout of the track itself. The track suits my riding style and I have many great memories thanks to the results I've obtained there these last years. At Donington we lost ground in the classification and so definitely need a strong weekend now."
