Technical staff from Honda MotoGP teams have attended their annual training school, bringing them up to speed with assembly, maintenance and set-up of the new 1000cc RC213V to be raced in the 2012 world championship.
According to LCR Honda, this year's training course took place earlier this month and comprised of ten days at HRC's Research and Development centre, located in the Saitama Prefecture (around 30 minutes from Tokyo city centre).
As well as LCR, staff from the Repsol and Gresini teams took part in the meetings planned by HRC's project leaders, which included information on checking components, assembly schemes and maintenance procedures.
The four Honda RC213Vs will be put to the 'test' during the first track action of 2012, which starts at Sepang in Malaysia on January 31.
Ducati and Yamaha run similar training courses for their teams.
