Phillip Island MotoGP test times - Tuesday 1:30pm

Lap times as of 1:30pm - halfway through the second day of the final pre-season MotoGP test for the official Honda, Yamaha and Ducati teams.
The official Honda, Yamaha and Ducati MotoGP teams are holding their final pre-season test from Monday to Wednesday at Phillip Island.

The special test has been arranged to avoid a repeat of last October's Australian Grand Prix tyre problems for the MotoGP and Moto2 classes.

Caught out by the new high-grip asphalt, a compulsory mid-race bike swap was required for MotoGP (Bridgestone tyres), while the Moto2 race (Dunlop tyres) was significantly shortened.

Fresh from their announcement to run under Open class regulations for 2014, Ducati Team riders Andrea Dovizioso and Cal Crutchlow are present, alongside Yamaha Factory Racing's Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi, plus Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa.

Bridgestone has brought two 2013 specification rear tyres and six new experimental tyres with changes to construction, compound and shape. However not all riders are testing the same tyres on the same days.

Pedrosa's team-mate and reigning world champion Marc Marquez is missing a second test due to the broken leg suffered in a dirt track training accident. The Marc VDS and Mapfre Aspar teams are in attendance for Moto2.

Testing began at 9:30am and finishes at 5:30pm.

The MotoGP teams not testing in Australia will hold their final pre-season outing at Qatar from March 7-9. The final Moto2 test will be at Jerez from March 11-13.
