Tuesday 2pm MotoGP test times - Sepang

Sepang MotoGP test times as of 2pm on Tuesday, during day one of the first test session of 2012.
A damp track caused by overnight rain meant that although the track opened at 10am, all bikes remained in the pits until 11:15am.

All twelve manufacturer riders are present for the three-day test, plus the Forward Racing and BQR 'Claiming Rule Team' teams.

The test marks the first time that the new version of the Ducati GP12 has been seen in public.

World champion Casey Stoner is not testing today after aggravating an old back injury whilst stretching this morning. The Australian is now resting and aims to return tomorrow.

The four laps credited for Stoner's bike were done by test rider Kousuke Akiyoshi.

@ Bradenws EAT WHAT?!?! He's 3sec off last years time, with 200cc more, and it's the first day. He's in 2nd, The Repsol guys have barely put any times in (and let's be honest, they are the team to watch at present) and he's not far ahead of Spies and Bautista, EVEN CAL who is looking interesting. If Rossi is still up there tomorrow afternoon I'll be impressed, god knows this sport needs some more competition for Casey to whip!
