Sepang test ends with Aoyama fastest.

2010 MotoGP riders Hiroshi Aoyama and Marco Simoncelli both put in longs runs during a rain-free, if scorching hot, final day of testing at Sepang in Malaysia.

Riding for the newly formed Interwetten team, Aoyama completed a clean sweep of the three-day test - at which only the new RCV riders and Honda test team were present - by lowering his best lap time by almost one second to a 2min 2.3sec.

San Carlo Honda Gresini rider Simoncelli improved by half a second with a best lap time of 2min 3.2sec.

The fastest dry free practice time during the 2009 Malaysian Grand Prix was a 2min 1.427sec (the race was wet), while the official race lap record stands at 2min 2.180sec from 2007.

Both Aoyama and Simoncelli completed a longer run of around 15 consecutive laps during the final day, to get a feeling for their new RCVs in race trim.
