Release
VALENCIA MotoGP Official Test Sepang - 29/02/2012

Date : 02/29/2012

Repsol Honda Team miss today's test but is ready for tomorrow

Due to an engine failure on Dani Pedrosa's RC213V machine yesterday, HRC sent the engine to Japan for analysis.

The feedback after the investigation was positive, however it arrived after lunch when the Sepang circuit was drenched by heavy rain, so unfortunately the Repsol Honda riders were unable to take to the track.

Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa will return back on track tomorrow and resume their testing programme.
