Toomebridge's MotoGP star Michael Laverty feels some new parts for his PBM Aprilia at Silverstone in just over a week's time will help his climb up the CRT standings.

Speaking after the Indianapolis race on Sunday, Laverty said he had reasons to be cheerful.

He said: "I had good pace in the latter stages of Indy, but at that stage everyone had gone.

"I am currently struggling to get a good feeling from the front end in the early laps, but I'm hoping a revised front end set up will make a difference this weekend at Brno. We then have a few new parts arriving for Silverstone the week after, that hopefully will make a big difference."

In other news, if you'd like to re-live this year's Armoy Road Races or missed the event, you need not fret, as the Race of legends will be broadcast in two highlights programmes.

Produced by Isle of Man based company Greenlight Television, the two-part highlights shows will be show on Sky Sports weekly motorsport magazine 'Max Power'. Part 1 will be shown on August 24 on Sky Sports 4 at 7am and a repeat shown at 4am on August 29 on Sky Sports 3. Part 2 of the highlights will be shown on August 31 on Sky Sports 4 at 11am and then repeated on September 1 at 5am. If the highlights shows whet your appetite, Duke Video is currently producing a full DVD of all the action, which will be available to purchase very soon at
