At the end of the second IRTA preseason tests, the main character of the MotoGP class is again the Australian Repsol Honda rider.
Casey Stoner set the fastest lap of the three days of testing with a best time of 2’00.473.

Dani Pedrosa jumped into the second place in the last hour of testing and just 0.175 ahead his team mate.
Surprisingly Andrea Dovizioso finished the three days of testing with the third fastest time (+0.329) and with the honour to be the first Yamaha rider.
Jorge Lorenzo who had been the shadow of Stoner during the test, doesn’t went on track in the last hour of the test, so he couldn’t improve when lots of riders made their best.

Carl Cruchtlow was fifth just behind Lorenzo and putting his Monster Yamaha Tech3 in the third place of the Yamaha chart (faster than Spies).

Hector Barbera made a huge improvement finishing in the 6th position at the overall chart and at the front of the Ducati bikes. His result attracts attention if you see that Valentino Rossi, the second fastest Ducati Rider, is in the tenth position 0,3 seconds away from Pramac Ducati Rider.
