Casey Stoner happy with new Indianapolis track

Aug.25 - Repsol Honda rider Casey Stoner is pleased that Indianapolis has been given a new track ahead of this weekend’s MotoGP race at the Speedway. 2007 World Champion, heads reigning title holder Jorge Lorenzo by 32 points with seven races to go.

“In the past seasons the track at Indy has been extremely bumpy and also slightly dangerous, so I'm looking forward to going there and riding the new surface,” the Honda rider said on Tuesday. It will also be nice to ride the Honda there, as it took a lot of work to get the setup right on the Ducati at such a peculiar circuit.

“I've only ridden the circuit in 2008 and 2010 and we were pretty competitive there last year, but then I lost the front in the race, so it will be good to get there, test the new surface and get to work on the setup.”
