DE PUNIET FIFTH QUICKEST AT VALENCIA GP OPENING DAY

Valencia, 06 November: LCR Honda MotoGP Team racer Randy de Puniet began to set up his Honda machine with the fifth fastest time in today's free practice session at the Ricardo Tormo circuit which hosts the ultimate round of 2009 season this week end. Todays session was held in warm and windy conditions with air temperature reaching a comfortable 20 degrees and the fastest time of the day was set by Casey Stoner on Ducati (1'32.813).

The Frenchman aboard the Honda RC212V slid off in Malaysia and is determined to make amends for that mistake with a great end to the season at Valencia. Randy worked through his set-up options for Sunday's 30-lap race clocking his best lap time of 1'33.910 on last lap.

De Puniet -- 5th-- 1'33.910

De Puniet --5th: "It's been a good start here today. After the technical issues we faced in Sepang we came back to our base set up and it all seems to be working quite well! The bike is more stable in the concerns thus I can easily lap consistently fast. There are some small things to adjust in tomorrow's sessions but the overall package makes me quite confident for the race".
