PENULTIMATE ROUND FOR LCR TEAM AT WINDY ESTORIL

Estoril, 28 October: Following its three-race tour in Asia and Australia, MotoGP returns to Europe for two season-ending events on the Iberian peninsula, this Sunday's Portuguese Grand Prix and the following Sunday's Valencia Grand Prix. The last two rounds of the season also see a return to the three-practice session format which was successfully trialled at Aragon, with the opening session in the MotoGP class at Estoril scheduled to get underway at 10:05am local time on Friday.

Randy de Puniet arrived at the Portuguese track with high motivation as he aims to move back into eight position and the 29-year-old can rely on good experience at Estoril where he has previously stood on the podium three times in the 250cc class and he is hoping for yet another positive performance aboard his machinery despite the changeable weather of the Atlantic coast.

De Puniet: "Estoril is a very interesting race track and I cannot wait to race there. I am bit worried about the weather which can be similar to Phillip Island, and the weather forecast is not very good at the moment. Anyway I think we can be fast there and we need to be fast to end the race in the top eight. I need to score important points for the championship as the season is coming to an end. Last race was not bad but I could finish in a better position. I must take the best from my machine in the final two rounds."
