DE PUNIET BACK IN SECOND ROW AT ARAGON GP QUALIFYING

Aragon, 18th September: the LCR Honda MotoGP Team rider Randy De Puniet rode his RC212V on the sixth spot for tomorrows 23-lap race at Aragon Motorland circuit which is a brand new event on the world championship calendar. After yesterdays cloudy and rainy 45-minutes free sessions, the premier class riders experienced another cold practice this morning but the weather turned into sunny for the qualifying session which saw Stoner on the top of the timesheet.

The Frenchman confirmed he is a fan of the Spanish track and found a good rhythm in the dry posting the 6th fastest time (1'49.952) in the afternoon session enjoying riding his machinery at the 5.078km race track which boasts elevation changes and some spectacular corners.

De Puniet -- 6th -- 1'49.952

Randy: "After yesterdays engine brake issues the guys worked in the right way to improve the bike and this second row makes me very confident for tomorrows race. We just lacked some rear grip in this morning session but we made another step forward in the afternoon. I finally enjoyed riding my bike after the bad injury I suffered in Germany. The last month has been very tough for me but now I feel in good shape again and more consistent on this track compared to Misano. Of course I am not at 100% yet and I know that this race will be close but I feel more comfortable now and it seems I do not need to push hard to be fast and this is very positive".
