A two-day nightmare

A two-day nightmare

A two-day nightmare

Despite suffering from jet lag and 48 hours of flight delays, Casey Stoner, was in fast form at the Losail Circuit yesterday, taking the second fastest lap time after two first practice sessions in Qatar. Riding the LCR Honda RC211V, Stoner was one second under the lap record in a superb performance.

It was a great surprise, as Stoner stepped straight from aircraft to the circuit and setting the best times. Stoner was scheduled to arrive in Doha on Tuesday afternoon but eventually arrived at 08:00 on Thursday and was rushed to Losail by LCR Team manager Lucio Cecchinello. Technical problems delayed Stoner's flight and was forced to grab just two hour sleep at the airport overnight.
