DE PUNIET TO DEVELOP CORRECT PACKAGE AT DUTCH GP OPENING DAY

In a warm opening day of Dutch Grand Prix with ambience temperature of 27o.C, LCR Honda MotoGP racer Randy de Puniet set the 11th fastest time at the 4.555 km track which hosts the sixth round of the calendar. LCR Honda MotoGP Title Sponsor at the circuit known as "The Cathedral" is REVI'T which is leading company in the production of most innovative, functional and stylish motorcycle apparel and for this race Randy's bikes will be equipped with Super B batteries in order to guarantee the right energy in the electronic system for the entire week end!

Assen is the only track to have hosted a Grand Prix every year since the World Championship began in 1949 and MotoGP riders are big fans of the floating track including De Puniet who came in to chase the correct package ahead Saturday's 26-lap race. The Frenchman circulated the Dutch track 29 times posting his fastest time of 1'36.294.

De Puniet -- 11th -- 1'36.294

De Puniet: "Well... our position is not brilliant but I am not worried about that. We lapped on the same hard tyres for the whole session as we usually do chasing the correct race overall package. At the end I struggled with the rear grip on maximum angle as it dropped a lot and I could not go for a fastest lap time. We gathered some new good data to improve our bike tomorrow and I feel confident we can lap in the front again".
