RAIN BRINGS EARLY END TO TEST FOR DUCATI MARLBORO TEAM AT BRNO

Bad weather at Brno afforded the MotoGP teams just half a day's testing in the second and final official one-day post-GP session scheduled for the 2010 season.

Casey Stoner and Nicky Hayden both gave positive feedback about a new front fork they tried for the first time today, Stoner clocking the second fastest time of the day and Hayden tenth fastest as he took care not to force his injured left wrist. The American is confident he can be back to full fitness in time for his home race at Indianapolis on the 29th August.

CASEY STONER (Ducati Marlboro Team)
"We tried a new fork today and as far as we could tell the feeling is positive. Unfortunately we were only able to get a couple of hours in this morning because immediately after lunch it started to rain and we couldn't complete the test. I hung about in the garage in case we got chance to go back out but the track stayed wet and there was no point. Our impressions of the fork are good but really the day was a bit of a waste."

NICKY HAYDEN -- (Ducati Marlboro Team)
"We got out there this morning and got a few hours of testing in because we really needed it. We had a few new settings we wanted to try as well as the new fork. The feedback was positive but at the moment but we need more tests. My hand was a little painful but honestly it wasn't a major drama and I hope that with a week's rest I can be fit for my home race."
