Repsol Honda Team conclude a productive test at Phillip Island

160222_103

MotoGP’s three-day Australian pre-season test ended today at Phillip Island, with Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa in first and seventh places, respectively. It was a very productive test for the Repsol Honda Team, which made further progress on the new unified software and collected much valuable information on tyres and bike settings. This data will be valuable as the HRC engineers return to Japan and continue their work.

With the day opening under a heavy sky that threatened rain, Marc immediately began to lap strongly, setting very consistent lap times that put him second quickest. Unfortunately, rain started to fall around noon, resulting in a long wait in the garage until a little after 3 p.m. When action resumed, Dani also set several fast laps in the 1’29 range before finishing his day with an hour to go in the session, while Marc took over at the top of the timesheets with a 1’29.158 lap that remained the fastest time of the day. In his last exit, Marc crashed in turn 9, with no consequences.

Marquez today completed a total of 64 laps, with his best time occurring on lap 48. Pedrosa set his quickest time of 1’29.606 on lap 37 of 42. It was another brisk day, with maximum air and track temperatures of 20 and 28° C, respectively.

The final three-day pre-season test will take place in Qatar 2-4 March.
