Valencia Post Race Test - Day 2 Times

Casey Stoner was fastest again during the final day of the first post/pre-season test at Valencia, ending the season almost as it started. Nicky Hayden put in yet another monster working day, running 92 laps, or 3 race distances, taking the 2nd fastest time, and showing that the 2008 RC212V already has plenty of potential. Perhaps the biggest surprise was Randy de Puniet setting the 3rd fastest time, settling in at his new team very quickly indeed.

Jorge Lorenzo was fastest of the new boys, by some margin, all of whom were way down the field, with Andrea Dovizioso and Alex de Angelis slower than Kawasaki regular Ant West.

Update - Spanish daily AS.com is reporting that both Dani Pedrosa and Jorge Lorenzo used qualifiers to set their times, while all of the Bridgestone runners used only race tires.
