Mediaset: De Puniet testing Aprilia CRT bike

Randy de Puniet was on track in Valencia aboard an Italian bike, but not a Ducati. The Frenchman was riding an Aprilia Superbike with Bridgestone tyres alongside official test rider Alex Hofmann, according to the Italian website, Sport Mediaset.

The test was conducted with a view to return to the manufacturer, albeit under the CRT formula in MotoGP, as De Puniet is still without a confirmed ride for 2012. The only other option available for the experienced racer seems to be a test and substitute rider for Ducati, but for the moment he is continuing with tests, in hopes that it opens some doors for 2012.
