Troy Bayliss: ‘I have no intention of returning to racing!’


Testing, yes. Racing, no. Stoner and Hayden can breathe easy, Bayliss isn't coming back


Troy Bayliss, who completed a three-day test session on the Ducati Desmosedici GP9 at Mugello today, registered a best time of 1m51.2s. This was slightly better than the 1m51.4s logged by regular Ducati test rider Vittoriano Guareschi, who was also testing alongside Bayliss.

‘It didn't take long to get back into it but before anyone gets any ideas, I will also say that I'm happy to be heading back to the airport and towards Australia and home this evening. I have no intention of returning to racing,’ said Bayliss. ‘I will probably test the bike again [during June or July] and I am very happy to play a part in this project,’ he added.

‘Working with Troy has been useful because he has a very different riding style to Vittoriano. It's been interesting and beneficial to hear his impressions of the GP9. We worked on chassis set-ups that are pretty different from those which we usually use and the results were promising although we need to look at this further. We can count on Troy's great experience to continue to improve our bike,’ said Filippo Preziosi.
