After a dry half-day of testing on Monday, Tuesday was wet throughout, with only ten riders setting a lap time.

Of those, new Pramac Ducati rider Danilo Petrucci led the way, despite a fall when the rain intensified. New LCR Honda rider Cal Crutchlow fell on his out lap, with Loris Baz (twice) and then Scott Redding also sliding off without harm late in the day.

Aspar's Nicky Hayden tried the 2015 spec RC213V-RS for the first time.

Day one pace setter Jorge Lorenzo and Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa were among those not to lap in the wet, preferring to wait for what are forecast to be better conditions on Wednesday.
