Brno MotoGP test times - Monday (Final)

27 August 2012

Following Sunday's Czech Republic MotoGP, a post-race test session was held at the Brno circuit on Monday.

The Factory Honda and Yamaha teams were 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 was making his debut for Repsol Honda with a view to replacing the injured Casey Stoner at Misano and Aragon, while Jorge Lorenzo spent some time evaluating an early version of the 2013 M1.

Colin Edwards rode 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 took to the track with various machines.

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.

Round 13 of the 2012 MotoGP World Championship takes place at Misano from September 14-16, before which Honda has confirmed it will test at Aragon on September 4-5.
