Sepang II MotoGP test times - Tuesday 2pm

28 February 2012

Testing began at 10am and concludes at 6pm. However storm clouds began gathering around midday, with heavy rain starting to fall at 2pm meaning the day could be effectively over.

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

Factory Ducati rider Nicky Hayden and Tech 3 Yamaha's Andrea Dovizioso will be hoping their healing injuries will allow for greater track time than at the first test.

However Karel Abraham (Cardion AB) is struggling with a back injury sustained at the recent private Jerez test and looks set to miss day one.

The second Sepang test finishes on Thursday evening, after which only one more official test (at Jerez) will remain before the start of the racing season.
