Austin MotoGP, Texas - Free practice (4)

Free practice times (4) from the inaugural MotoGP of the Americas at Austin, Texas, round 2 of 18.
The new qualifying format will now begin, starting with Q1, where those outside of the top ten after third free practice will fight for the last two places in Q2.

Both qualifying sessions are just 15-minutes in length.

This weekend's event marks MotoGP's race debut at the Circuit of the Americas. The Repsol Honda, LCR Honda and Factory Yamaha Teams took part in a private test at the circuit in March, when rookie Marc Marquez led all three days.

Two American wild-cards are joining the grid this weekend: Blake Young with Attack Performance and Mike Barnes for GP Tech Suzuki.

@ Fraud 46 Awww yeah. Darn that slow Rossi. He's just tootin' around for sh-ts and giggles waving at fans when he should be racing. Shoot, it's FP4....that's right, FP4 and he's in 7th. He lost the race. Don't even bother watching tomorrow. (sarcasm)
