The LCR Honda MotoGP Team rider Randy De Puniet got the 8th position in today's preseason official MotoGP practice session at Jerez de la Frontera. Wet track and heavy rain welcomed the premier class riders for the second day of testing at the Spanisgh track with Stoner on the top of the timesheets. The Australian won the BMW car with a 1'49.623 lap time whilst Randy De Puniet focused his work mainly on wet set-up aboard his Michelin-shod Honda RC212V.

The Frenchman completed 15 laps in the wet this morning and 11 laps in 40-minute session with a 1'51.979 best lap time. LCR Honda MotoGP team has one more full-day of testing tomorrow before it moves on to Losail circuit in Qatar for the next Official test.

De Puniet: "I usually have a good pace in the wet but today's 40-minute session was strange. When I went out with a rain used tyre the feeling was pretty good. Then, after some laps I used a new one but the surface started to dry up and grip was not enough. I made some laps on qualifiers but in those conditions it was impossible to catch Stoner. This morning we fixed the bike in the wet and it was interesting for me. After the official session we had to stop our job because the wind was to strong".
