Thursday 2pm MotoGP test times - Sepang II

MotoGP lap times as of 2pm on Thursday, during the third and final day of the second official Sepang test.
Testing began at 10am and concludes at 6pm.

The session was briefly red flagged to allow some work on the trackside electronics, while most riders are at lunch. Yamaha riders Ben Spies and Jorge Lorenzo have both fallen, but were unhurt.

Honda riders Casey Stoner, Dani Pedrosa, Alvaro Bautista and Stefan Bradl are returning to action after missing day two while HRC carried out engine checks following a problem on Pedrosa's bike.

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 first two days of testing were both interrupted by rain storms.

The third and final official pre-season test will be held at Jerez from March 23-25, when the full 21-rider grid - twelve manufacturer bikes plus nine CRTs - will be on track together for the first time.

Well done Casey and Honda. Both rider and manufacturer are at their best right now and its why i love watching moto gp. Im not here to watch amateurs or sub standard bike builders rolling around a track. I like Rossi but the only reason i dont want him to win is the fanboys out ther are such dix.. and totally blind and in denial for that matter
