PIC: Nakasuga lights it up at Sepang MotoGP test

Yamaha test rider Katsuyuki Nakasuga gets sideways through Turn 3 at the Sepang MotoGP test.
Yamaha's Katsuyuki Nakasuga may not have been able to replicate the lap times of fellow development rider Casey Stoner (Ducati) at the Sepang MotoGP test, but he certainly put on a show.

This picture by Gold and Goose shows the former MotoGP podium finisher and reigning Suzuka 8 Hour winner burning rubber from the rear wheel of his M1 through the fearsome Turn 3.

Nakasuga, whose work may well have included dialling-in the traction control for the new unified ECU software, finished the test 20th out of the 23 riders.

It just goes to show what skill is required to ride these bikes. He can smoke the rear tire cornering at speed yet is 20th fastest. I remember a race school day at Cadwell park. I thought I was the bees knees until one of the instructors came past me to put me in my place.
