Speedweek: De Puniet quick on first Suzuki test

Speedweek reports that Randy de Puniet had an impressive outing this week at Motegi as he completed his first outing with the new Suzuki 1000cc MotoGP™ prototype and was pitted against the Honda and Yamaha test teams represented respectively by Takumi Takahashi and Kousuke Akiyoshi on one side and Katsuyuki Nakasuga and Wataru Yoshikawa on the other.

De Puniet is reported to have lapped faster than the Japanese test riders over the test two-day test held on Thursday and Friday with a best lap clocked in 1'47.000. Suzuki testing schedule will continue in Europe when the Japanese factory joins the rest of the MotoGP™ field for the the Barcelona Post-GP Test in June.
