Day two of the second 2016 MotoGP test took place at Phillip Island in Australia on Thursday.

After another damp start the track dried out and, barrier a brief shower at midday, riders were able to steadily improve their lap times culminating in a 1m 29.131s for young Suzuki star Maverick Vinales.

A fall for Dani Pedrosa briefly brought out the red flags at 5:15pm, with a further stoppage after a spill for Yonny Hernandez (also at Turn 4) in the closing minutes. Both reported to be OK.

Testing, which took place between 9:45am and 5:45pm, concludes on Friday evening...
