Bridgestone Tyre Test Commences In Phillip Island


Repsol Honda’s Dani Pedrosa has finished the first day of the three-day tyre test in Australia, completing 88 laps (more than any other MotoGP rider) with a best lap of 1'29.961 on lap 43 placing him 4th.

Bridgestone brought eight rear slick tyres per rider to this test –two 2013 specification tyres and six new experimental tyres with changes to construction, compound and shape. Today, Dani’s programme was to start on the 2013 tyres –for comparison purposes– and then perform short runs (of at least 6 laps) on the experimental tyres to collect initial data.

Tomorrow and Wednesday longer runs of 15 laps or more will be requested, depending on weather, to gather sufficient information to take back to Bridgestone in Japan. If possible, they would like each rider to complete a full race simulation on the final day.

1:29.961, 88 laps, 394 km.
"Today we only tested a little with the first batch of tyres –in particular the rear slick that we had available. To start with I just rode for myself, in order to regain my feel for this track, and then after lunch I began the testing workload with the new compounds. We've been evaluating the different tyres that have been brought here, and tomorrow we will continue our testing with another compound. Obviously I can't give any information about how I felt with the various tyres, as at the moment that is all confidential."
