5 February 2013

UPDATE: Valentino Rossi went top with a lap of 2m 1.584s at 12:10pm, with team-mate Jorge Lorenzo moving into second place shortly after...

The 2013 MotoGP line-up took to the track for the first time at Sepang in Malaysia on Tuesday morning.

After a special two-day test for the CRT entries running the standard ECU, which saw limited track action due to bad weather and technical gremlins, the continued threat of rain meant that riders wasted no time in getting out on track for the start of the main three-day test.

Testing began at 10am, concludes at 6pm then continues on Wednesday and Thursday.
