Valencia MotoGP test times - Wednesday (Final)

Lap times as of 5pm, the end of the third and final day at the post-race Valencia MotoGP test.
Following Sunday's Valencia MotoGP season finale, an official test session was held at the circuit from Monday to Wednesday.

The test marked the first appearance for Cal Crutchlow at Ducati, Nicky Hayden at Aspar, Moto2 world champion Pol Espargaro at Tech 3 and former title rival Scott Redding at Gresini.

The new Open class machines from Honda and Yamaha also made their official debuts.

New world champion Marc Marquez, who like Repsol Honda team-mate Dani Pedrosa sat out day one, was fastest on days two and three. Honda and Yamaha both had prototype versions of next year's Factory machines at the test.

Wednesday's track action began at 10am, but some teams - including Yamaha - concluded testing on Tuesday.

This should silence a few of Brad's critics, probably not all of them, sadly. Ducati's updates didn't work. New bar grips, new clipboard and pen, Expresso machine and still no improvements, You can't accuse them of not trying.

@Realist Smith was riding Crutchlows bike with the updated tank. The factory bikes are also using this part. Smith's own words were: "this is everything I had been searching for". So...clearly we're not talking about factory parts that didn't work.
