Tuesday 4pm MotoGP test times - Sepang II

MotoGP lap times as of 4pm on Tuesday, during the first day of the second official Sepang test.
Testing began at 10am and concludes at 6pm, but a heavy rain storm soaked the track between 2-3pm.

Only Valentino Rossi, test rider Franco Battaini (on Nicky Hayden's bike), Andrea Dovizioso, Dani Pedrosa and Stefan Bradl have been on track since, although conditions may improve enough for more slick laps late in the day.

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 will 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.

Utter disappointment from rossi & ducati.I was really looking forward to it.He has done most laps than anyone(25 by 1pm when track was dry) & put additional 10 laps(due to rain it may not count).Even if he is testing race pace & assuming (hopefully) this time(2m 3.245s) is his race pace,it is still way slower than stoner,lorenzo,dani,spies.His hopes of fighting for podium,challenging dani like he said at last test is not going to happen.Was he really serious when he said he has good feeling with the bike last time,or just trying to cheer his fans? Fantastic pace by ALVARO.
