Tuesday 5pm MotoGP test times - Sepang

Reigning double MotoGP champion Jorge Lorenzo splits Repsol Hondas at top of timesheets with one hour to go...
2013 MotoGP action officially got underway with the start of the first test, open to all teams and riders, at Sepang in Malaysia on Tuesday.

After a special two-day test exclusively for privateer 'CRT' entries using the standard ECU, which saw limited action due to bad weather and technical gremlins, the threat of rain meant riders wasted no time at the start of the main three-day test.

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

dude... everyone is almost 2 secs slower than 1.59... I dunno, but maybe because there's not enough rubber on track? Maybe because no one is interested in doing qualifying laps? Maybe because they're TESTING!???? FFS...

Forget Stoner, its OVER for him, HE IS not there! He WAS fast on a motogp bike, no doubt, but I for one am only interested in the riders that are in the series. This year is gonna be epic! Good luck to them all, Motogp is back :)
