Canepa Fastest Again On Day Two Of Indy Tire Test

Bridgestone and Ducati test rider Niccolo Canepa was fastest once again on the 2nd and final day of the MotoGP tire test at Indianapolis. The Italian put in a fast lap towards the end of the session, after Ben Spies had been fastest for much of the day. Times were generally around a second quicker on Wednesday, despite top speeds being unchanged.

Suzuki's regular test rider Nobuatsu Aoki did not feature on the 2nd day of testing. The Japanese veteran ran 4 laps on Tuesday to help get the bike set up for Ben Spies, before letting Spies get on with the testing. Aoki spent the rest of the time in the pits, helping Spies communicate with Suzuki's Japanese engineers.

The next time the MotoGP bikes roll out on the track at Indy, it will be for keeps, at the Red Bull Indianapolis GP in September.

John Hopkins had a very nasty looking crash at the Ramshoek, the last left hander before the chicane. Word so far is he is conscious and has injured his ankle. The Ramshoek claims a victim every year, and while it was Toni Elias for the last two years, Elias avoided crashing, and may finally get to race at Assen.
