Ducati Press Release: Rossi Tests The Ducati At Mugello

As reported earlier this morning, Valentino Rossi spent the day at Mugello testing the 2012 Ducati Desmosedici GP12. The test had been laid on for Rossi to check the progress of next season's Ducati MotoGP machine, and test the updates made to the machine at the request of himself and teammate Nicky Hayden after the Jerez test back in April. Rossi also got to try out the new surface at Mugello, which he greatly approved of. Looking at the photos from the test (shown below), Mugello's brand new grandstand is also clearly visible, a marked improvement from the old grandstand at the circuit.


Rossi Tests At Silverstone During Official Opening - On A Road Bike

When Valentino Rossi broke his leg at Mugello last June, he was forced to miss the next three races, the first time he had done so since entering the World Championship back in 1996. The first of the races Rossi missed was the British Grand Prix at the newly restored venue of Silverstone, the track layout modified especially for the return of MotoGP. As a result of that accident, Rossi was the only rider left on the grid who had not ridden at the Silverstone circuit, and as the track counted as new on the calendar, the Italian was still entitled to test there to learn the layout.

Rossi's problem, of course, was that he could not simply turn up at a track day to learn the circuit, as Randy de Puniet did. While De Puniet is a big enough of a star to attract a far bit of attention at a track day, Valentino Rossi's celebrity means that he would never get a clear lap, or probably even a chance to go out and ride.
