Positive day of work in mixed conditions at Phillip Island

160219_101

The second day of testing at Phillip Island again got off to a wet start, but although varied conditions affected the action until around lunchtime, the afternoon finally featured enough dry, sunny weather (with a maximum air temperature of 23° C and track temperature of 45° C) that the riders were able to carry out a decent amount of work.

Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa made the most of the time available, completing 79 and 55 laps, respectively, and both felt they made a positive step in the management of the new unified software compared with the Sepang test.

Marc took to the track on slick tyres at around 11 a.m. and immediately found a good pace while he and his technicians focused on the settings of his RC213V. He remained in the upper part of the timesheets throughout the day, steadily improving his rhythm and finishing a close second, with a best time of 1’29.292 that came on lap 78. Dani was one of ten riders who were able to break the 1’30 barrier today. He posted a 1’29.917 time on lap 38 and was pushing hard to further improve his pace when he crashed in turn 4 with no consequences. He re-joined the action approximately 40 minutes later.

Testing will end tomorrow.
