BAD WEATHER STOPPED RIDERS QUALIFYING AT MOTEGI

Motegi, 25 April: torrential rain today at Motegi qualifying session with air temperature of 13o.C and asphalt temperature of 22o.C only. Initially the race direction according with the Riders Commission decided to postpone the session from 14:05 to 15:00 but the track surface was to dangerous and with several trickles in the corners so 3-class qualifying sessions have been cancelled.

Following the FIM rules yesterday's first free session will be used for tomorrow's grid but LCR Honda MotoGP racer Randy de Puniet is not happy about his position as he was expecting a better place even in the wet.

De Puniet -- 16th

De Puniet: "Off course I am not happy about this cancellation and these conditions. Like this I will start from the 16th place and won't be easy to catch the firsts. I was pretty fast in the wet this morning and fixed many adjustments with the Team to improve the setting for this afternoon's session. I could get a good place in the wet but I agree with the safety procedure".
