|The Repsol Honda Team leaves Laguna Seca very happy and ready for a well
deserved summer break. Casey Stoner took his fourth win of 2012 and Dani
Pedrosa, third, celebrating his ninth podium in ten races, a successful
combination that allows the Repsol Honda Team to celebrate the 300th podium in
the premier class.|
After a difficult weekend trying to make the hard tyre work on his RC213V, Casey took a risky tyre choice just before leaving for the grid, opting for the soft rear, while Dani and Lorenzo took the hard. It was a good move for Casey to increase his confidence at a circuit he likes a lot and where only he and Wayne Rainey have won three times in the top class. Dani was unable to keep up with the pace of Casey and Lorenzo, but still managed to record a new fastest race lap on lap 5 with 1'21.229.
With this victory, Casey celebrates his 37th premier class win equalling Mike Hailwood and is joint 4th in overall premier class victories behind Rossi (79), Agostini (68) and Doohan (54).
Dani remained loyal on his podium visits and with his third place finish at Laguna, equals his longest sequence of successive podiums (5) in the MotoGP class and equals Casey in fifth position in premier class podium finishes with 65.
The Repsol Honda Teams takes now a breath for the summer break with Dani second in the MotoGP World Championship, 23 points behind Lorenzo, and Casey in the third position, 9 points behind Dani.
Well I doubt I will ever be brave enough to buy a conversion like this but saw these and the think they look amazing. I find that a great deal of headlight conversion often look tacky and dread it when I hear of angel or demon eyes. These however seem tasteful and do seem to suit the lines of the bike.
