27 August 2012
Following Sunday's Czech Republic MotoGP, a post-race test session is being held at the Brno circuit on Monday.
The Factory Honda and Yamaha teams are both present, along with some satellite and CRT competitors, but the Factory Ducati team has chosen to test in private at Misano on Tuesday and Wednesday instead.
World Superbike star Jonathan Rea is testing for Repsol Honda with a view to replacing the injured Casey Stoner at Misano and Aragon, while Jorge Lorenzo will try an early version of the 2013 M1.
Colin Edwards is riding the Aprilia ART of Speed Master's Mattia Pasini, with Moto2 riders Mike di Meglio and Julian Simon getting an outing on the BQR of Ivan Silva. Former MotoGP rider Loris Capirossi is due to ride various machines.
However since timing transponders identify bikes, rather than riders, official timing may list the name of each machine's usual rider.
Testing began at 9am, with a lunch break from 1-2pm...
