Wednesday 1pm MotoGP test times - Valencia

Valencia MotoGP test times as of 1pm on Wednesday, the second and final day of testing.
Following Sunday's season-ending Valencia Grand Prix an official MotoGP test session is being held at the circuit on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The test is the first time that the new 1000cc bikes from Honda, Yamaha and Ducati have been on track at the same time. Bikes from the new 'Claiming Rule Team' (CRT) category are also present.

The test also marks the public debut of a twin-spar aluminium frame - as used by the Japanese manufacturers - on a Ducati MotoGP bike.

Yamaha's Jorge Lorenzo is absent due to his finger injury, while Nicky Hayden will also miss the test after being diagnosed with wrist fractures from Sunday's turn one pile-up.

d....there is a lot of difference being in the lead and first one to be hitting the wet lines , stoner slowed down using common sense , the yam has better grip in the wet....have to be a rossi fan to disagree.

Yes d you are right...1.5 sec is nothing for a good rider to catch up during a race. However 1.5sec/lap is a whole different story, you can put the genetically crossed lovechild of Rossi, Agostini, Doohan and the ghost rider himself on the bike and he still wont see after 10 laps which way the Hondas went. But nothing to worry about, still have 3-4 months to create the new inline4 Dumaha engine that will be mounted on the front fork so finally there will be enough weight on the front and they can save the weight of the chain from the back. :)) But joking aside, according to Barbera the new frame is a step forward again, wondering why Rossi is behind him...again.
