Wednesday 6pm MotoGP test times - Sepang

Sepang MotoGP test times as of 6pm on Wednesday, at the end of day two of the first test session of 2012.
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 was forced to sit out day one due to a back strain.

The delay in releasing today's final times was caused by a false 1min 58sec end-of-day lap time listed for Ben Spies on the circuit timing screens.

Testing concludes on Thursday evening.

Did Rossi get a tow off Barbera to get so high up? After this season Stoner will prove who is the goat. The other riders should be grateful he was stuck on that Duke for so long

Used to enjoy MotoGP(copyright)(TM)(etc.) and have been looking forward to these tests for some time. All these children's comments have, however, totally phuqued me off. Another year - same idiots.
