Sepang II MotoGP test times - Wednesday 12pm
29 February 2012
Testing began at 10am and concludes at 6pm.
Heavy rain began falling shortly after 12pm, sending all riders back to the pits.
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) have not been on track. An official explanation is yet to be given.
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.CLICK HERE
