Second day of testing for the Ducati Team at Sepang

160203_08

Ideal weather conditions greeted the MotoGP riders for the second of three days of testing organized by IRTA at the Sepang International Circuit on the outskirts of the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur.

Both Ducati Team riders have one of the new 2016 Desmosedici GP bikes available together with one of last year’s models. Today they used exclusively the 2016 version and they were accompanied in this development phase by the two-time world champion, Australian Casey Stoner, who focused on vehicle and electronics set-up work on the Desmosedici GP15 of the Test Team.

The morning’s favourable weather conditions allowed almost all riders to set their reference time right away, but a spectacular crash on the main straight involving Frenchman Loris Baz on the Avintia Racing Ducati brought out the red flags and a delay of more than one hour in track activities.

All three Ducati Team riders returned to the track again at around 4 pm to complete the rest of their work load, which included testing Michelin front tyres and further refinements to the electronics set-up.

Tomorrow, the third and final day of testing will see testing activities again in the hands of Andrea Iannone, Andrea Dovizioso and Casey Stoner.
