De Puniet looking forward to Brno
13 August 2007 – Kawasaki rider Randy de Puniet is looking forward to the Czech Grand Prix. The Frenchman has good memories, having claimed no less than five top ten finishes there in his 250cc days, including a win in 2003 and a podium in 2004
Having left the paddock with a spring in his step after an excellent 6th place at Laguna Seca, the 26-year-old Frenchman aims to ride his Bridgestone-shod Ninja to an equal, if not better, position at Brno. Currently standing 13th in the championship, de Puniet hopes to add to his tally of 50 points, which has already placed him ahead of Toni Elias, Makoto Tamada and Carlos Checa.
Randy de Puniet said looking ahead of the Grand Prix weekend at Brno: "I like Brno. I won there in 2003, got a second in 2004 and had many top ten finishes there, when I was riding in the 250cc world championship. I think the Ninja ZX-RR is going to perform well there, too, with good power for the straights and plenty of acceleration. I'm looking forward to it."
