MotoGP™ riders to remain at Brno for post-Grand Prix test

MotoGP™ riders to remain at Brno for post-Grand Prix test

Much of the premier class grid will stay on at Brno on Monday for an important day of testing following the bwin Grand Prix České republiky.

Although the Repsol Honda team tested at Brno in mid-July at the beginning of the summer break, both Marc Marquez and Sunday’s race winner Dani Pedrosa will again be present on Monday as they work on the evolution of their Honda RC213V prototype.

Their rivals from the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP team Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo will also be present as they try to bridge the performance gap to HRC, with their evolving YZR-M1 package, having both finished on the podium in the Czech Republic.

Ducati will be represented by Yonny Hernandez of the Energy T.I. Pramac Racing

team and test rider Michele Pirro, who is riding as a wild card on the official Ducati Team Desmosedici GP14 at Brno this weekend. Under Luigi Dall'Igna

(Ducati Corse General Manager) the Italian factory will have a new bike for 2015 but the machine is not scheduled to be debuted publically until next February’s Sepang tests.

Andrea Dovizioso, Cal Crutchlow and Andrea Iannone will not take part in the workout as they have a private Ducati test at Misano in just over a week’s time.

The likes of Monster Yamaha Tech 3’s Pol Espargaro and Bradley Smith, Team GO&FUN Honda Gresini’s Alvaro Bautista and Scott Redding, LCR Honda MotoGP's Stefan Bradl and NGM Forward Racing’s Aleix Espargaro are all scheduled to participate in the test, working on getting the maximum from their respective satellite and Open packages.

Leon Camier (Drive M7 Aspar) and Alex de Angelis (NGM Forward Racing) will both also be present, giving them each a chance to gain further experience on MotoGP™ Open machinery. Monday will also see former Grand Prix rider Kenny Noyes return to the MotoGP™ scene as he tests for Avintia Racing.
