Class is in session for the LCR Team

The technical crew that will follow Moto2 Champion Stefan Bradl into his MotoGP™ debut flew to Japan to learn from HRC engineers how to "tame" the new Honda RC213V.

Following standard protocol, HRC Management made a request that all Honda Teams attend a training course concerning the assembly, set-up and maintenance of the RCV bikes that will run in the MotoGP™ Championship.

During the winter break, Honda hosted a 10-day stay for the technical members of their "own" MotoGP Teams (Honda HRC, Honda Gresini, Honda LCR) at their Research and Development center located in the Saitama Prefecture (30 minutes from Tokyo city centre) to update the crew members on new technical features of the RCV bikes before hitting the track at the end of this month for the first winter test in Malaysia.

The LCR Team staff landed in Japan just a few days after the start of the new year to take part in several meetings to learn how to verify that every component works properly, study assembly blueprints and to learn maintenance procedures to fine tune the RC213V prototypes in preparation for Sepang.

All that is left is to wait until the first test session in Malaysia (January 31 through February 2) to see how Lucio Cecchinello’s Team and his new favourite reigning Moto2 World Champion do!
