Ducati Team Concludes IRTA Tests At Sepang


Today the two Ducati Team riders Andrea Iannone and Andrea Dovizioso, together with test-rider and two-time world champion Casey Stoner, had to wait until late morning to take to the track on the third and final day of IRTA tests at Sepang, because of the damp track conditions following overnight rain. Once the test was underway, the two Andreas continued development work and adapting the Michelin tyres to the new Desmosedici GP, while Stoner carried on with his scheduled test programme on the GP15.

The third and final day of testing with the Aprilia RS-GP machines at Sepang also had the Aprilia Racing Team Gresini riders only taking partial advantage of the eight hours available. This was due to the rain showers in the morning, not hard enough to justify using rain tyres but enough to force Alvaro Bautista and Stefan Bradl to come into the garage.

The third and final day of the Sepang test was marked by variable weather conditions. Following an overnight rain shower, the track surface was still damp when the lights went green at 10 a.m., prompting the teams to wait until noon before sending the bikes on the track. The Repsol Honda riders were granted a couple of hours of work before a light rainfall halted them again until 4:30. Following a pause, Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa resumed action, riding regularly until 6 p.m. Temperatures were much cooler than the previous days, with air and ground maximums of 32° C and 36°, respectively.

ASPAR Team - MotoGP Test Sepang - 03/02/16


The first three days of MotoGP preseason testing in 2016 concluded today, with the riders now not set to return to the Sepang International Circuit until the Grand Prix here in October. Unlike previous seasons when the Malaysian track has hosted two preseason sessions, the next appointment for the teams and riders is another three-day outing at Phillip Island, on the 17th, 18th and 19th of this month. Even though today was effectively cut short by a tropical downpour at around 3pm, the Sepang test has given the first indications of how the 2016 season might shape up. So far it looks like the factory Yamaha remains the package to beat, with Jorge Lorenzo demonstrating exactly why he is World Champion with a consistency and pace that has been unmatched. The Spaniard was almost a second clear of his closest rival today as the only rider to break the two-minute barrier, although his team-mate Valentino Rossi has also shown a consistently high level of performance in second place. Ducati demonstrated that they have nothing to fear this season, their hard work showing with strong representation in the top half of the timesheets, including star test rider Casey Stoner, who has proved that he remains one of the fastest men in the world on two wheels despite having retired from competitive action back in 2012.

2016 MotoGP: Lorenzo sets the pace as the #SepangTest comes to a close


Jorge Lorenzo backed up his 2015 MotoGP™ World Championship by dominating the first test of 2016.

A damp track early on Wednesday morning delayed track action for over two hours on the final day of the Sepang test. It was Yamaha test rider Katsuyki Nakasuga who was the first out on track, testing conditions for the rest of the field. Slowly more and more riders joined the action and with just over five hours of testing remaining the majority of the field were on track. Andrea Iannone was an early leader as the conditions continued to improve. The Italian suffered a small fall and was unhurt.

The first benchmark lap came from Jorge Lorenzo, the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP rider one of the last to join the action on track but setting a 2’00.882 on just his fourth lap. With five hours to go Lorenzo led from Casey Stoner, the Australian impressing many as he continued to test the GP15 for Ducati.

ASPAR Team - MotoGP test Sepang - 02/02/16


The MotoGP riders were back on track today for the second day of the first preseason test at Sepang. Once again the track was open from 10am to 6pm, with the main headline being the return of double World Champion Casey Stoner, riding alongside the main championship riders for the first time since his retirement in 2012 in his capacity of Ducati test rider. It was a good day all round for the Italian factory, with Danilo Petrucci setting the fastest lap of the test so far and the likes of Barberá, Redding, Iannone and Hernández all featuring at the top end of the time sheets. As usual at this circuit the majority of the faster laps were set in the early part of the day, although Lorenzo, Crutchlow and Rossi did manage to improve their pace in the latter stages. Petrucci’s best effort of 2.00.095 improved the benchmark by six tenths from yesterday as the 1’59 mark comes into sight, with one more day of the test to come tomorrow.
