Positive test for Pedrosa

Positive test for Pedrosa

Despite a small fall in the morning at Brno the Repsol Honda rider left the official MotoGP test pleased with his efforts and the third fastest time.

Fresh from his second place finish in yesterday’s race, Dani Pedrosa spent time improving his race set-up before trying out his RC212V with a modified chassis, setting an encouraging lap time of 1’56.944.

Just before lunchtime he had a low-speed fall in turn seven, but he was able to return to the track to continue testing in the afternoon. The rain however prevented Pedrosa from trying the new Öhlins equipment.

Dani Pedrosa:

“This morning we started with our race set-up from yesterday and made some improvements to the rear grip which could help us in the upcoming races. I had a crash with the race bike late in the morning and took an impact on my chest which might be painful tomorrow, but luckily I was able to get back on the bike this afternoon without any problems. I tested an updated chassis and the initial results were positive, but I had only five laps on it before the rain ended the day for us. We weren’t able to test the new Öhlins suspension which is a pity because these were new parts for next year, but overall it was a worthwhile test.”
