Aoyama quickest at Valencia test

The factory 250cc Honda teams began putting the finishing touches to their preparations for the 2004 season with the first of two days of tests at Valencia today. Telefónica Movistar Honda pair Dani Pedrosa and Hiroshi Aoyama were joined at the Spanish track by Fortuna Honda team-mates Toni Elías and Roberto Rolfo, with sunshine and warm temperatures providing a stark contrast to the cold and wet of Catalunya one week ago. Japanese prospect Aoyama demonstrated that he is adapting well to life in Europe with the fastest time of the day, clocking 1'36.6 to top the time sheets by seven tenths from his team-mate Pedrosa. Elias and Honda ended the day on the exact same time, both setting 1'37.4.
