STONER INSIDE BRNO LAP RECORD, CAPIROSSI SATISFIED WITH TESTS

On the final day of post-race testing at Brno, Ducati Marlboro Team Casey Stoner and Loris Capirossi worked on machine set-up and tested some new Bridgestone race tyres.

This morning the track was damp after yesterday's downpour but it improved during the day, allowing both riders to successfully complete the work planned for the tests.

Stoner lapped consistently at a very good pace, then bettered his own fastest race lap and broke the lap record which had been unbeaten on Sunday. Capirossi, among other things, tested two new Bridgestone 16-inch rears that he found promising but in need of further development.

Casey Stoner, 27 laps, fastest lap: 1m 57.924s (race tyres)

"I'm pretty happy. Today we made a further step forward on bike set-up, similar to what we did in the post-race tests at Catalunya. I'm also happy with the new fairing because conditions were a bit windy this afternoon but I could still lap fast at a very good rhythm. I think these two days have been really positive for us".

Loris Capirossi, 22 laps, fastest lap: 1m 59.616s (race tyres)

"Today we did a few laps, focusing on tyre tests and set-up tests. We also tried two Bridgestone 16 rears which aren't bad but need more work in order to be well balanced with the front, in order to be as competitive as the 16.5-inch rear. It has nevertheless been a positive day and now I look forward to racing at Misano next week".
