Sepang II MotoGP test times - Wednesday 11am

29 February 2012

Testing began at 10am and concludes at 6pm. The weather is slightly cooler than yesterday morning, with greater cloud cover. The risk of rain is ever present.

Repsol Honda riders Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa - first and second on day one - plus fellow RCV riders Alvaro Bautista (Gresini) and Stefan Bradl (LCR) are yet to appear on track.

Karel Abraham (Cardion AB Ducati) withdrew from the test on day one due to pain from shoulder and back injuries sustained at Jerez last week.

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.
