Sepang November 2007 Testing Times - Day 3

Testing finished on Saturday at Sepang in cooler, but still hot, tropical conditions, and thankfully without any of the rain which had plagued the two previous days.. At the end of the three-day test, it was Nicky Hayden who came out fastest, shaving one hundredth of a second off Valentino Rossi's pole record, set on the 990 cc Yamaha M1. Next fastest man was Colin Edwards on the Tech 3 Yamaha, down 1.2 seconds, but as the Texan's time was set on race rubber, still 0.2 seconds faster than Casey Stoner's lap record set during the race here in October.

Andrea Dovizioso was the fastest rookie, setting an impressive 4th fastest time, keeping the Suzuki veterans of Chris Vermeulen and Loris Capirossi behind him. Jorge Lorenzo significantly improved his time on Saturday, as did the other Yamaha rookie James Toseland, despite setting the slowest time of the day on his first outing on the Yamaha M1.

Testing continues in 10 days time at Jerez in Southern Spain, where Dani Pedrosa will once again join the fray, and Valentino Rossi will make his debut on Bridgestone tires. Rossi's return to testing will also give us our first glimpse of how the split Fiat Yamaha garage will work, with a wall being erected to separate Valentino Rossi's pit crew from Jorge Lorenzo's team.

Sepang November 2007 Testing Times - Day 2

Conditions started wet on the second day of testing at Sepang, much as they did yesterday. Times were a little improved from yesterday, with John Hopkins being fastest on Friday on the Kawasaki, ahead of his former team mate Chris Vermeulen on the Suzuki. The two Yamaha newcomers, Jorge Lorenzo and James Toseland, both improved their times from yesterday, Lorenzo by 0.4 of a second, and Toseland by 1.2 seconds. Meanwhile, Lorenzo's archrival in the 250 class, Andrea Dovizioso, is settling in extremely well at JiR Team Scot, and continues to set fast times.

Testing finishes tomorrow, in the hope that the weather will improve.

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.
