I thought the November test in Jerez was for the small classes as well? Didn't they have one more test before December in the last seasons?

...without qualifiers - in fact much more so than previous ones.

i have to say that no qualifier tires is the best thing (possibly only good thing) about the single tire rule.  qual tires never made sense to me since qualifying had nothing to do with race pace.

granted, there were some qual sessions this year that were much more interesting than the races themselves ;)

according to motogp.com Suzuki and Kawasaki will be testing in Phillip Island instead of Jerez
