Jerez Test Friday Times: Pirro Fastest On Day Lost To Rain

The final day of testing at Jerez saw little testing happening, with most of the teams having packed up and headed home. The weather had given them little reason to stay: it was a rain-soaked day, with the weather getting worse in the afternoon. Only the factory Ducati World Superbike team, Ducati MotoGP test rider Michele Pirro, Suzuki test rider Takuya Tsuda, Yamaha World Superbike rider Michael van der Mark, KTM test rider Mika Kallio and Honda test rider Hiroshi Aoyama set a time, with Tsuda and Ducati's Chaz Davies putting in the most laps.

Testing is now over for the year. The teams and factories head back home to work on the data they have collected, ready for the resumption of hostilities in the new year. The World Superbike field will be the first to return to the track in mid-January, while MotoGP follows a couple of weeks later in Sepang.
