Valencia, 9 November: the Official MotoGP Test concluded its second andfinal day at the Spanish track under sunny skies with plenty of action. Dani Pedrosa and Casey Stoner led the way in terms of lap times both getting down into the 1’31” band.
LCR Honda gave Moto2 World Champion Stefan Bradl the opportunity to test the RC212V in both days of testing and the German responded by recording the tenth quickest time (1’34.142). Bradl only took a few laps to make himself comfortable aboard the Honda machinery and continued to improve on his lap-times as the days progressed completing 123 laps in total at the 4,005m Valencia circuit.
Stefan Bradl: “First of all I want to thank Honda and LCR Team for this great opportunity. I really enjoyed riding a MotoGP bike and I was impressed by Lucio’s team know-how and high level: we made a very good job together exploring the potential of this bike. I learnt a lot from this experience and I want to thank everybody for their support”.
Lucio Cecchinello: “We have concluded two positive days of testing with Stefan and I was impressed by his skills and the way he studies the bike: he gave us a very precise technical feedback if we consider it was his first run on a MotoGP bike. Now we will proceed our negotiations with our sponsors and Honda to fix our 2012 program in the next hours".
