STUNNING PODIUM FOR DE PUNIET AT DONINGTON

Donington, 26 July: the LCR Honda MotoGP rider Randy De Puniet got a storming 3rd place in today’s 30-lap British Grand Prix at Donington Park. The tenth round of the season started today at 15:30 local time and was held in damp conditions with cloudy skies and some poor rain in the last part of the race. De Puniet posted the tenth lap time in yesterday’s sunny qualifying session at the 4.023 Km British track but this morning warm up session was conducted in the wet with De Puniet clocking an impressive 5th lap time. Started from the fourth row he ended the first lap in eight place setting consistent lap times in the front. At 21 laps to go the Frenchman riding the Honda RC212V started a thrilling battle with Pedrosa for the third place (Elias, Lorenzo and Rossi crashed out) and a closest one with Ewdards for the second place until the last corner. Randy is now holding the 8th position in the championship with 74 points. The MotoGP circus will now have a break of two weeks before the next Czech Republic GP on the 16 of August. De Puniet – 3rd De Puniet: “It’s like a dream for me and the Team! It has been a very stressful race and I was very nervous on the grid as the conditions were pretty bad. I took a good start on slick tyres and was very aggressive in the first laps. I got the sixth place but the gap on the front riders was too wide and thought to keep my pace without taking any risk. Elias crashed in front of me and Pedrosa did not seem very confident on his machine. When he started to loose time I took my chance to pass him and we battled for several laps. I could overtake him as my machine was a bit faster and suddenly realized that I was holding the third position. After Rossi’s crash I took the second one remaining focused as the surface was very slippery. Then Edwards came up quickly giving me the chance to reduce the gap on Dovizioso but it was too late and too dangerous so I kept my position and we battled for the second place until the last corner. I am so happy for this result and want to thank everybody especially Lucio. We are sharing an amazing moment together!”

Claudio vola e..frena alla grande!


STRAORDINARIO PODIO DI CLAUDIO CORTI
Claudio Corti (team Alstare Suzuki Brux) ha infiammato il pubblico di Donington disputando una delle sue più belle gare in carriera, fatta di grandi sorpassi e intraversate da brividi. Il pilota comasco, partito dalla sesta fila dopo i problemi nelle prove, è stato autore di una rimonta prodigiosa che lo ha portato a concludere la gara addirittura al secondo posto. Scattato fortissimo, Claudio è transitato già nono al termine della prima tornata, quinto alla conclusione della seconda, recuperando fino al terzo posto nel sesto giro. A quel punto ha messo nel mirino Fores e lo ha saltato con facilità, accumulando un leggero margine che gli ha permesso di passare sotto la bandiera a scacchi senza problemi. Grazie a questo risultato, Corti continua ad occupare la seconda posizione nella classifica di campionato, a soli 11 punti dalla vetta, quando mancano ancora cinque gare al termine.CLAUDIO CORTI (team Alstare Suzuki Brux) “Bella gara, era un bel po’ che non facevo così tanti sorpassi. Già dal warm up di questa mattina, dove abbiamo davvero stravolto il set up, mi sono accorto di aver trovato un grande feeling con la moto e sono partito convinto di fare un grande risultato. La partenza è stata decisiva ma ho sempre corso senza farmi prendere dall’ansia di recuperare, attaccando quando c’erano le condizioni, senza rischi. Forse ho perso un po’ di tempo dietro a Fores, ma Simeon non sarebbe stato ugualmente raggiungibile. Ecco, l’unico rammarico è che se fossi partito più avanti in griglia, mi sarei giocato la vittoria fino alla fine. Voglio dedicare questo secondo posto a me stesso e alla squadra: ieri abbiamo fatto un po’ di confusione ma oggi ci siamo riscattati alla grande. Grazie a questo risultato siamo rimasti in piena corsa per il titolo e dalla prossima gara di Brno l’obiettivo sarà vincere per ridurre il distacco in classifica.“.GARA: 1. Simeon (Ducati) in 18’54”713 alla media di 153,161 km/h; 2. Claudio Corti (team Alstare Suzuki Brux) a 1”600; 3. Berger (Honda) a 2”110; 4. Fores (Kawasaki) a 2”522; 5. Barrier (Yamaha) a 3”433; 6.

The grid position did not help us and I took a bad start but after the first corner I overtook some riders and was up to ninth by the end of the first lap. After that I caught a group of riders faster than me with better engines and could not pass them.
Suddenly Toseland passed me after the back straight but he was on the limit and hit my machine. Once again I had to push to catch the group but then Elias came up and hit me on turn no. 3. However I stay focused and when Capirossi and Elias made a small mistake in the last corner I was ready to take the chance to pass them. After a difficult qualifying we deserve this 7th place. My squad made a very good job on the electronic system between the warm up and the race”.
