From a press release:<BR><BR>FOGGY PETRONAS RACING: DEBUT ANNOUNCEMENT<BR><BR>Foggy PETRONAS Racing, the newly launched World Superbike Championship team funded by Malaysian petroleum giant PETRONAS, has reconsidered the timing of its competitive debut.<BR><BR>The initial target of the Laguna Seca round of the championship on July 14th has been sacrificed in favour of more testing time.<BR><BR>Team owner Carl Fogarty now aims to have his riders Troy Corser and James Haydon in action on the new Foggy FP1 race bike, launched last week in London, for the showcase races at Brands Hatch on July 28th.<BR> <BR>Carl said: "It was always our intention to start racing at the first opportunity. However, the very tight deadlines for everyone involved in this programme have meant that we have had to weigh up whether the time spent travelling to America would be put to better use on additional testing time nearer to home. I now hope that our debut can be at Brands Hatch where I always received such tremendous support during my career."<BR>
