Casey happy with positive Ducati testing as he finishes work at Sepang
Three days of official MotoGP testing came to an end this afternoon at the Sepang circuit. All the riders were able to lap on a dry track until around 3 pm, when the showers that fell on some parts of the Malaysian circuit hampered track activity. The session got going again one hour later and continued until 6 pm, when the final session of these first 2017 winter tests came to a close.
The final day at Sepang saw more activity for Casey Stoner, who had already taken part in the first day of testing on January 30th. Casey continued with development work on the 2017 Desmosedici GP together with Ducati Test Team technicians and he finished the day in seventh place, with a time of 1Ã¢â‚¬â„¢59.639 (eighth in the combined standings).
Casey Stoner (Ducati Test Team #27) Ã¢â‚¬â€œ today 46 laps Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 1Ã¢â‚¬â„¢59.639 (8th)
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Today was another fairly positive day, we got quite a few things tested before a little bit of rain disrupted us but we still got some good track time towards the end of the day as well. We got to do a lot of configurations between chassis, swing-arms, engine mappings and different things like this, so all in all it was quite positive and hopefully we got some good things to take away from this test.Ã¢â‚¬Â
