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.
