DE PUNIET BOOSTS HIS CONFIDENCE AHEAD CZECH REPUBLIC GP

French rider Randy De Puniet is eager to return to racing in the Czech Republic Grand Prix this weekend after a refreshing summer break. The 27-year-old will be back on his Honda RC212V nr.14 for the race at the 5.403 km Brno Circuit which hosts the twelfth round of the season.

Following a disappointing mid-season run of results the LCR Honda MotoGP racer has shown his true mettle in the last two races and aims to continue in the same vein at Brno, where he won the 250cc Grand Prix in 2003. Randy finished eighth in Germany before racing to his best result of the season at the US GP scored in extremely difficult circumstances, has reinforced his confidence for the second half of the season.

De Puniet: "Brno is one of my favourites and in 2003 I won the 250 race. After the race in Laguna I feel very confident for the rest of the season. I think we found the right set-up to develop the bike on each racetrack. The good place we gained in the US gave us more incentives to be more competitive. In the last weeks I enjoyed my vacation but I also trained a lot to be physically fit for the heat at Brno and at Misano. After the race we will also have two days of testing."
