DE PUNIET CLAIMS BRAVE 13th AT CEZH REP. GP QUALIFYING

Brno, 15 August: Qualifying for the Czech Repulic Grand Prix was run in hot conditions today with ambience temperature of 27o.C and the LCR Honda MotoGP racer Randy De Puniet again dug deep into his reserves to overcome the pain he is suffering to record the 13th fastest time of the day (1'58.298). The second day of practices at the 5.403 Km race track was very tough for De Puniet who was not able to ride at 100 per cent pace as he is still recovering from the left ankle surgery. The 28-year-old received a pain-killing injection prior to this afternoon's session struggling to get the most out of his machine on qualifiers but remains determined to pursue the best possible result here in tomorrow's 22-lap race.

De Puniet -- 13th -- 1'58.298

De Puniet -- 13th: "Well.. it's extremely tough for me but I am satisfied about my performance. I am still walking on crutches but when I come out I absolutely want to do the best despite my conditions. The Team is doing an excellent job to adjust the bike as I can't give them any specific set-up information. My foot is getting better but it aches so much! We are really pleased about our pace and everyday is a step closer to making a full recover. It won't be easy to maintain the rhythm for 22 laps but we have the potential to score some points".
