The Honda riders continue to work in the afternoon, but much of the attention is turning to entertainment rather than racecraft. Only Blake Young has improved his times, while Marquez and Pedrosa are turning lots of laps for the benefit of innovative camera work. Without the Dorna establishment here to clamp down on media, HRC are pulling out all the stops to shoot 1,000 frame per second corners, eye cameras, and on-board footage. Look for the Austin track to feature prominently in HRC promotions through the early part of the season.
Another interesting media note. For fans of the Faster / Fastest series of films, you'll be happy to know that Mark Neale has been on site all week shooting footage for an as-yet unnamed project.
