Les tests

The testing of MotoGP™ machinery is an absolutely crucial part of the preparation process for the teams involved in all three MotoGP™ categories.

Les essais programmés sur différents circuits permettent aux teams de tester leurs nouvelles motos, de récolter d’importantes données concernant leurs performances, d’essayer de nouveaux pneus, de réaliser des simulations de course, de travailler sur les réglages et de résoudre d’éventuels problèmes.

Pour le pilote, les essais sont toujours l’occasion de se familiariser un peu plus avec la nouvelle moto, de gagner de l’expérience sur les circuits, de rester en forme et de passer du temps avec les membres de son team.

ESSAIS DE PRÉ-SAISON

In addition to test days after the Jerez, Catalunya, and the Czech Grand Prix, the off-season is an important testing period for the teams. There is an almost two month long ban on any on-track testing for December and January, but the months of November and February are vital development periods for MotoGP™.

Valencia (after the final race of the year), Sepang (Malaysia), Losail (Qatar) and Jerez in southern Spain are regular test venues, providing an array of challenges and demands for the riders.

The selection of testing venues by IRTA and Dorna is designed to give the teams and the tyre suppliers a good all-round variation in terms of track layouts and the locations are intended to provide clear, dry weather - as rain hindered practice runs are not generally as useful to teams as dry sessions.
