LCR HONDA MOTOGP TEAM HIT MUGELLO FOR THE SIXTH ROUND

The LCR Honda MotoGP team hit Mugello this weekend for the Grand Prix of Italy, an event that produces a unique atmosphere on the MotoGP calendar. Sunday's 23-lap race at Mugello is round six of the MotoGP Championship, and is followed just one week later by the Catalunya GP in Barcelona. Mugello is the first of four races in June, the busiest month of the racing season.

Randy De Puniet is looking forward to racing at the Italian track which is one of his favourites. The Frenchman aboard the Michelin-shod Honda RC212V will enjoy the fast corners of the highly technical 5.245 km Mugello circuit trying to find the best set up of his machine in any track condition.

De Puniet: "Mugello is one of my favourite tracks. It's very fast and I enjoyed racing there in the past even though I was not able to achieve much success. After the Le Mans Grand Prix I feel we're going in the right direction to maintain our top ten position. The overall package makes me confident for the next races and I feel I can be consistent. Mugello is more suited to my riding style than Le Mans especially in the fast corners although I might suffer a lack of performance on the main straight. I'm not worried about the weather as we have to be at 100% in any track condition."
