Pramac Racing Heads For German GP

Sachsenring Circuit

Capirex And De Puniet Ready For Sachsenring

After Loris Capirossi’s double absence at Assen and Mugello, the Pramac Racing Team is once again complete for the ninth round of the world championship, at the Sachsenring circuit. The Italian has undergone physical therapy in recent days to recover the strength necessary to take part in the German round. It will also be an interesting race for Randy De Puniet, who last year had a hard crash at the circuit, fracturing his tibia and fibula. The venue, which is located approximately 100 kilometers from Dresden, is the second-shortest track in the MotoGP series after Laguna Seca and, because of its many twisty corners and continuous changes of direction, is also among the slowest.

“Capirex’s return to the track is definitely the most important aspect of this grand prix. Obviously, Loris won’t be at 100%, but he has worked a lot these days in order to be able to ride the bike adequately. In the past he has competed even when in very bad physical condition, so I hope he can do so again. Randy seemed very focused during the Mugello test. He has had a very difficult start to the season, between crashes and other problems, so I hope that he can start fresh at the Sachsenring. The German track is very technical and difficult, with a pretty short straightaway, and I think that this could reward the characteristics of our Ducati in some ways.”

“I’m still not completely well, but I have a couple more days of physical therapy to recover a little more. Getting back on track will be positive, but my goal is to be back to 100% for Laguna Seca. Missing the race at Mugello was very difficult for me, and it affected me a lot. Now I want to turn the page and return to the track. Only I ride my Desmosedici.”

“I like the Sachsenring circuit, despite the fact that I still have a bad memory from last year, when I fractured my tibia and fibula. I think that the track’s characteristics might match well with those of our bike, so I’m confident that I can do well. We worked hard at last week’s test. I hope that the results will be positive.”
