On the eve of his home race
Looking ahead to his home race the LCR Honda MotoGP Team racer Randy de Puniet joined the pre event press conference this week in the company of promoter Claude Michy and the French Motorcycle Federation president, former GP rider Jacques Bolle.
After his excellent 4th place in Jerez last week end the 28-year-old hits Le Mans on the 15-16 and 17 of May in good form.
“Last week end was simply perfect for me and the squad but we keep our feet on the ground. The championship is still long and it won't be easy but it seems we are working in the right direction. Racing here in Le Mans is always something special and the fans are very warm with me. But I have to keep my focus and get as consistent as possible”, he said.
“I am very happy about Randy's result in Jerez”, commented Team Manager Lucio Cecchinello. “It was the real demonstration of Randy's potential and the team made a great work to set up the RC212V 2009 spec.
The rest of the season won't be easy as the factory bikes are very competitive but our target remains the top eight finish.
