Provisional test dates agreed for 2015 preseason

Provisional test dates agreed for 2015 preseason

The traditional post-Valencia GP test, the two visits to Sepang and a test in Qatar are on the provisional 2014-15 ‘winter’ test calendar, whilst test days for Michelin tyres have also been provisionally scheduled.

Following a meeting of the IRTA Committee held at Silverstone a provisional programme for the 2014-15 winter test dates has been circulated.

The provisional schedule is as follows:

MotoGP™:

10th-12th November 2014 – Valencia

4th-7th February 2015 – Sepang 1

23rd-26th February 2015 – Sepang 2

6th-9th OR 13th-16th March 2015 – Qatar

Moto2™ and Moto3™:

10th-12th February 2015 – Valencia

17th-19th February 2015 – Jerez

3rd-5th March 2015 – Jerez

The first Grand Prix of 2015 will be at Qatar, in mid to late March. Accordingly, two possible dates are shown for the final MotoGP class test at Qatar and the actual date will be confirmed once the final GP calendar is published.

At each 2015 MotoGP™ class four day test, one day will be reserved for Michelin testing, as the company prepare for their return to the World Championship as Official Tyre Supplier to MotoGP in 2016. At the two Sepang tests it will be the last day but at the Qatar test it will be the first day. The Michelin test at the first Sepang test and the Qatar test will be for factory test riders only. The Michelin test at the second Sepang test will be open to all contracted riders.
