Thursday 5pm MotoGP test times - Sepang

Sepang MotoGP test times as of 5pm on Thursday, during the third and final day at the first test session of 2012.
World champion Casey Stoner beat the best 800cc test time on only his second lap, during cooler conditions this morning.

The track opened at 10am and will close at 6pm - however a thunderstorm, which arrived shortly after 5pm, has effectively ended the test.

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

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

What a Super talented rider, he can go fast regardless of the bike... and I think he could even going somewhere in the middle of the pack if he is on a CRT machine... Remove Stoner and then it will be Jorge Lorenzo on a Yamaha leading the time sheet....
