MotorSport Magazine: On your marks, get set, test!

MotorSportMagazine.com has published a feature by Mat Oxley on how MotoGP testing has changed since Mick Doohan's day: Back in the day, riders and teams would disappear on hush-hush private tests – we’re off to the beach, honest – to grind out endless laps, hunting out those elusive few tenths. Alex Briggs, mechanic to Valentino Rossi and former spannerman to Mick Doohan, is one of many who misses those days. “We used to go solo testing with Mick,” recalls Briggs. “We’d get a new set of cylinders from HRC and off we’d go for a few days testing somewhere. We’d get everything spot on and we’d turn up at the next race and ambush our rivals – whammo! You don’t get to do that anymore.” Read the full article here.
