Lorenzo top of the timesheets in the #CzechTest


Reigning world champion straight back on top after difficult GP Movistar Yamaha MotoGP rider Jorge Lorenzo topped the timings in the one day official post-race test at the Automotodrom Brno with a 1:55.394, as the reigning champion proved the fastest man on track ahead of teammate Valentino Rossi (+0.371) and Repsol Honda Team rider Marc Marquez (+0.754).

Those present at the test were Movistar Yamaha MotoGP, Repsol Honda Team, Team Suzuki Ecstar, LCR Honda, Monster Yamaha Tech 3, Octo Pramac Yakhnich and Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS. Action got underway later than expected after a Red Flag due to track conditions at Turn 11, with the majority of the grid then heading out in the early afternoon to begin work in earnest and the end of the session extended by half an hour to compensate.

Magneti Marelli supplied some software updates to all teams, and Movistar Yamaha MotoGP were one of those trying the new software in Brno. Yamaha also focused on evaluating a new chassis and swingarm, as well as the electronic updates and evaluating some different front tyre options that are currently in the development stage for 2017. Reigning champion Lorenzo completed 43 laps, with teammate Rossi putting in 60.

Tech3 Pair Leave The Czech Republic Confident After Positive Brno Test


Monster Yamaha Tech3 Team rider Bradley Smith undertook a confidence boosting test at the Masaryk circuit today as he closed the session in 6th. The 25-year-old sampled new electronics, examined suspension options and also reconfirmed the setup configurations that he used at last week’s Czech Grand Prix. With no action for any MotoGP riders occurring in the morning due to a dirty track surface, the British rider got straight to work after midday and immediately began his efforts. Smith posted his personal best time in the final hour of the day and on his penultimate lap, which resulted in him finishing under half a second adrift from third. He now confidently looks on to his home Grand Prix at Silverstone where he intends to clinch the leading satellite position in front of his fans.

2016 Czech Republic GP: MotoGP Race Results - Crutchlow charges through to make history


After a torrential Moto2™ race at the Automotodrom Brno, it was the turn of the MotoGP™ machines to head out as the rain was just starting to stop - leaving the prospect of a flag-to-flag hanging over the race. In the end it wasn’t to be, and it was Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda) who sliced through the field in one of the most spectacular victories in recent years, taking the flag to become the first British winner for 35 years. He also follows Jack Miller (Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS) into the history books as a winner with an independent team in 2016, with wet weather opening the door for many on the grid.

Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) and Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) completed the podium in a chaotic race, with the 9-time champion making a small gain on title rival Marquez as the two crossed the line in P2 and P3 respectively.

Polesitter Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) had the worst start off the front row as Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) and Andrea Iannone (Ducati Team) swept past the championship leader, before both Movistar Yamaha riders Lorenzo and teammate Valentino Rossi began to drop through the field on the harder option rear tyre. Marquez played it safe to slot into the middle of the top ten as his title challengers suffered, as Iannone, teammate Dovizioso and Scott Redding (Octo Pramac Yakhnich) escaped at the front.

Espargaro Clinches Valuable Points In Tough Czech Grand Prix


Monster Yamaha Tech3 Team rider Pol Espargaro persevered against the challenging conditions at the Czech Grand Prix to finish in 13th after what was a tricky race for the 25-year-old. The Spaniard kicked off his round 11 campaign from 12th on the grid and immediately ran with the factory MotoGP bikes at the front of the field. He slipped to 8th on the third lap but pushed onwards as he aimed to stay with the leading group. As the track began to dry Espargaro was shuffled back, despite his best efforts, and by lap fifteen he was running in 13th. Eventually, he met the chequered flag in this position to close what was a tough weekend. Today’s result sees the 2013 Moto2 title winner move up to 7th and as the top independent rider in the 2016 World Championship standings and he now intends to produce a strong result at the next round after tomorrow’s test in Brno.

2016 Czech Republic (Brno): MotoGP Qualifying Results - Stunning Marquez races to record Brno pole


Championship leader overtakes Rossi in the final corner to take a record lap of the Cezch circuit

Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) has taken pole position in Brno, as the points leader in the title fight left it late to overcome an ominous-looking Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) in the final minutes of Q2. Marquez, who topped Friday but had since been overshadowed by compatriot Lorenzo in FP3 and FP4, pulled out an incredible laptime in the session - including overtaking the provisional polesitter’s Yamaha teammate Valentino Rossi into the final corner in a spectacular move up the inside. Poleman and winner last time out Andrea Iannone (Ducati Team) completes the front row in P3.

Marquez had an orange first sector after Lorenzo’s second attempt saw him move further clear at the top, before the timing screens went red in sector 2 and 3 - with the final part of the track the decider. With two tenths to play with, Marquez came up behind the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 of Pol Espargaro and Movistar Yamaha of Valentino Rossi at the final corner - and slotted between the two through the final apex to take a stylishly record-breaking P1.

Jorge Lorenzo has shown sublime form all Saturday in Brno, including proving the first man to break the lap record in FP3, and also topped FP4 before just losing the pole position to compatriot and championship rival Marc Marquez. Lorenzo’s race pace looks ominous however, with memories of his domination in Brno in 2015 also sure to be high in rivals’ minds.
