Post Jerez Test Day 2 Times

Testing continued in much improved conditions today, the rain having disappeared, though the wind continued to cause a few problems. The field was rather depleted, with several teams and riders electing to skip the days testing, and head off home for a rest before the next race at Istanbul in 3 weeks time.

The Gresini Honda boys were fastest, both putting in fantastic times, ahead of Randy de Puniet, who found a problem to his rear traction problems, and Carlos Checa. Both Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden set much slower times, but spent the day focusing on finding a decent setup, rather than the pursuit of a single fast lap. What effect the tests will have will become apparent at the next round in Turkey.
