Jerez MotoGP test times - Saturday 5pm

24 March 2012

Testing began at 10am and concludes at 6pm, but wind and rain has severely reduced track activity. After better weather failed to materialise, riders began taking to the track with wet settings from around 2pm.

Ivan Silva and Franco Battaini recorded dry times this morning, before the rain arrived. By contrast, Dani Pedrosa set his best time during a long run in fully wet conditions. The Spaniard has now finished testing for the day.

The three-day test marks the first time that the full 21 rider grid, including the nine new CRT entries, have been on track at the same time.

Honda's reigning champion Casey Stoner was fastest at the two previous tests, held in Malaysia, and also on day one in Jerez.
