While the full-time MotoGP race riders left for Le Mans on Wednesday evening, factory test riders (including Repsol Honda substitute Stefan Bradl) spent a second and final day on track at Portimao.

The action was again divided into two sessions, the first from 9:00-13:00, followed by a lunch break, then a second session from 14:00-17:00.

Ducati's Michele Pirro was fastest in both sessions, setting the best lap of the day in Session 1, when he was less than two tenths from Aleix Espargaro's Wednesday time on an RS-GP.

Honda's Stefan Bradl did not take part in Session 2 as he had to leave for this weekend's French MotoGP, while Suzuki's Sylvain Guintoli also missed the final afternoon.

Jorge Lorenzo was riding a 2019 Yamaha, all other test riders are thought to have been on 2020 bikes.

Portimao will host the new MotoGP season finale from November 20-22...
