MotoGP™ testing activity to conclude for 2014 with Sepang and Jerez dates

MotoGP™ testing activity to conclude for 2014 with Sepang and Jerez dates

CWM LCR Honda rookie Jack Miller is set to test in Sepang next week, whilst there will also be several teams testing at Jerez before the on-track 2014 activity for MotoGP™ draws to a close during the winter testing ban.

The ban comes into effect for December and January, after which the riders will reconvene for the now traditional preseason tests - also at Sepang.

Before then, however, Miller and his crew will be working hard from 26th-28th November as the young Australian gets to test the 2015 RC213V-RS Open machine which he is set to ride in his MotoGP™ debut season.

At the Valencia test following the season-concluding Grand Prix Miller had ridden a 2014 RCV1000R as he started his MotoGP adventure. He is to be joined on track in Malaysia by Honda test rider Hiroshi Aoyama as the Japanese manufacturer continue their development and planning for next year.

Also next week, in the south of Spain, at the Jerez circuit there will be plenty of activity as Alvaro Bautista and Marco Melandri will test for Factory Aprilia Gresini, Aleix Espargaro and Maverick Viñales will be on track again with Suzuki and Stefan Bradl and Loris Baz will continue to work with their new team NGM Forward Racing.

It will also be a busy week for Ducati before the winter break kicks in as Ducati Team pair Andrea Iannone and Andrea Dovizioso and the Avintia Racing team will also test at Jerez.

Iannone and Dovizioso will still be working with the GP14.2 and will ride the new GP15 for the first time early next year at Sepang on 4th February.
