De Puniet confirms Suzuki test after home race disappointment
Sunday, 19 May 2013

Power Electronics Aspar’s Randy de Puniet will travel to Japan tomorrow to test Suzuki’s potential MotoGP™ entry for 2014 following the disappointment of a crash in his home race at Le Mans.

The Frenchman was pushing hard in wet conditions in front of his local crowd, only to suffer another crash in his 2013 campaign. Following the race he was visibly disappointed, but also confirmed that he looks to put the result firmly behind him as he travels to Japan tomorrow to test a Suzuki MotoGP™ machine, which had already been spied and talked about in numerous biking publications and media outlets.

He could not give specific details, but said he hoped this would see him arrive to the next race in Mugello in a fresh frame of mind to help him mount a serious challenge for top CRT spot on his ART machine.

He commented: “Yeah we leave tomorrow to Japan to test with Suzuki in Motegi, and it’s good for me because I will forget very quickly the race from today and I think it will be good for Mugello. I will be ready to be fast immediately. That is a good experience for me how to do a great job and I really hope to come back to Mugello for a good race.”
