MotoGP™ action continues with three day Valencia test
There are 27 riders scheduled to take part, with the test to be run over three days, concluding on Wednesday. The likes of Repsol Honda’s Dani Pedrosa, along with Movistar Yamaha MotoGP pair Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo are scheduled to participate on all three days as they look to maintain their high levels of competitiveness.

World Champion Marc Marquez has been given Monday off by his team to celebrate winning the Valencia race and the title this year.

For Ducati Team’s Andrea Dovizioso and his new teammate in the official factory team of the Italian manufacturer, Andrea Iannone, they will test only on Monday as their new bike for 2015 is not expected to be ready until after the winter break when testing resumes at Sepang.

Test rider Michele Pirro is scheduled to ride until the end of Wednesday however, as are Pramac Racing’s Yonny Hernandez and new colleague Danilo Petrucci.

When pit lane opens on Monday at midday there will be much focus on Aleix Espargaro and rookie Maverick Viñales as they get their first contact with the Suzuki GSX-RR - as their new adventure with the returning Japanese factory commences.

Gresini’s Alvaro Bautista has to wait until Tuesday to try his new Aprilia. He will be joined on track by Marco Melandri in riding the machine, but first another former Grand Prix rider Alex Hofmann will undertake some laps for Aprilia on Monday.

For the new CWM LCR Honda team they will welcome new signings Cal Crutchlow and Jack Miller into their ranks. Crutchlow will be riding his new factory specification RC213V, whilst Miller is expected to use an RCV1000R as he gets his first feel for MotoGP.

Thus far there is still limited availability of the new Honda RC213V-RS machine which Miller will race with next year, though Karel Abraham (Cardion AB Motoracing) and Nicky Hayden (Drive M7 Aspar) are expected to use the bike this week.

Hayden, meanwhile, will welcome new teammate Eugene Laverty into the Aspar team as of Monday, with the Irishman arriving from WSBK. Scott Redding will move onto an RC213V machine with the Marc VDS Racing Team as they arrive in the premier class.

The NGM Forward Racing team will also have a new look as of Monday’s first day of testing as the experienced Stefan Bradl joins the team, with MotoGP newcomer Loris Baz also coming in from WSBK.

The test schedule is 12 midday-5pm on Monday and 10am-5pm on Tuesday and Wednesday, with Live Timing available throughout on ***********.

There will also be live video coverage of the test on *********** from 2pm-5pm on Monday and from 11am-1pm and 2pm-5pm on Tuesday. From Monday to Wednesday there will also be highlights videos at the end of each day, plus all the latest news and exclusive features.

Seeing his time above i knew it was a done deal :) i wish him well and welcome back!

Melandri to race with Aprilia in MotoGP™ in 2015
Melandri returns to Grand Prix fresh from the conclusion of the 2014 Superbike season, also with Aprilia Racing, where he took six wins and another five podiums which contributed significantly to the WSBK Manufacturer Title that the brand won.

As announced at the beginning of September, Aprilia Racing has signed an agreement with Gresini Racing, based on which Gresini will manage the Aprilia bikes on the track in the MotoGP class for four years - beginning with the 2015 season.

Romano Albesiano, Aprilia Racing Director, commented: "With Marco Melandri the last piece of the puzzle has been put into place for Aprilia's participation in next year's MotoGP season. These have been very intense and exciting days where in just a few hours we went from the last round of Superbike at Losail to this new adventure in MotoGP. We are very pleased to announce Marco's signing because this completes our team in the best way possible on the eve of a great challenge.”

Melandri added, "I was offered the chance to develop a completely new project and it is something that I have not yet done in my career since I have always had 'inherited' bikes. Precisely for this reason I am very intrigued by this challenge. I am working with a company and a racing department which sought me out and with which I want to continue to work in order to develop and grow a great project. Aprilia Racing has always demonstrated their ability to make great bikes and make them fast. I'll put in my efforts. Our goal is quite ambitious, to grow a bike and at the same time to develop a new prototype that will race in 2016. It will be a demanding season and a lot of work but we are ready to take on these challenges.”

Lorenzo fastest on Monday in Valencia test
Lorenzo’s fastest time of 1’30.975 was the best of the day as he and his teammate Valentino Rossi worked on various updates to their YZR-M1. Rossi was fourth fastest and 0.275s off Lorenzo’s time, the Italian behind Monster Yamaha Tech3 pair Pol Espargaro and Bradley Smith as Yamaha locked out the top four.

Alex Marquez got a nice present for winning the Moto3™ title on Sunday as his brother Marc Marquez rode a few laps with him on the elder brother’s Repsol Honda RC213V machines. Marquez’s Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa was sixth fastest overall, 0.627s down on Lorenzo.

Bridgestone brought the same tyre specifications as the race weekend to help the teams with cross-referencing their data, with only the harder rear tyre featuring a slightly different spec.

Andrea Dovizioso was seventh fastest and new factory Ducati Team colleague Andrea Iannone was fifth, as they worked with a similar package to that which they ended the 2014 season on. Their 2015 bike will only be available from Sepang testing after the winter break and they therefore ended their test on Monday.

Yonny Hernandez was 10th and his new Pramac Racing teammate Danilo Petrucci was 13th as they tested only the GP14, whilst Hernandez will switch to the GP14.2 from Tuesday.

The new look CWM LCR Honda team were hard at work with new recruits Cal Crutchlow and Jack Miller both on track. Crutchlow ended the day eighth on his new RC213V, with Miller further down the timesheet notching up 61 laps on a 2014 Open Honda as he adapted to MotoGP. Scott Redding (Marc VDS Racing Team) ended the day 15th, as he too tested the RC213V and lapped two seconds slower than Lorenzo.

Spanish pair Aleix Espargaro and Maverick Viñales started their Suzuki adventure with rookie Viñales in 17th - roughly a second behind his more experienced new teammate. Espargaro was 14th overall and 1.34s off P1 pace.

Evolving Aprilia machines were tested by Alex Hofmann, with Marco Melandri making an appearance late in the day for the new Factory Aprilia Gresini team. Alvaro Bautista also featured, with the Italian manufacturer experimenting with differing air intake options and a new pneumatic valve engine.

NGM Forward Racing welcomed Stefan Bradl and Loris Baz as the team focused their work on chassis and suspension, with the new riders adapting to the Forward-Yamaha package.

The test will continue on Tuesday and Wednesday (10am-5pm), with Live Timing available throughout on ***********.

There will also be live video coverage of the test on *********** from 11am-1pm and 2pm-5pm on Tuesday. There will also be highlights videos at the end of each day, plus all the latest news and exclusive features.

Its amazing how guys that ride a new bike for the first time can instantly run at a blazing pace.

Hopefully Suzuki can be competitive next year and keep their bikes running!

Champion Alex Marquez enjoys MotoGP™ test with brother Marc
The test ride was a gift from HRC and Shuhei Nakamoto to the younger Marquez sibling for clinching the lightweight class crown this season.

Alex got some advice from his older brother Marc before they headed out on track from the Repsol Honda pit box, the siblings riding the machinery which successfully brought Honda the triple crown of Rider, Team and Constructors World titles in 2014. On track they were even joined by Yamaha’s nine-time World Champion Valentino Rossi for a while as the Italian took a look at Alex’s riding style.

Alex will begin his new chapter in Moto2™ later this week with a test in Jerez. He commented, “I am very happy to have tried the MotoGP bike. Yesterday I fulfilled one dream and today another came true. It’s not every day you can try a bike like this. I want to thank Honda and especially Shuhei Nakamoto for this time they have given me on track. It is a great gift for being Moto3 World Champion.”

“What impressed me most was the power with the bike. The feeling you get when you're on the straight is amazing and braking also. The gap from corner to corner is greatly reduced. Physically I finished a little tired. At first I was a little stiff, but I think I held up well. I enjoyed it like a little kid.”

Crutchlow undertakes first laps as CWM LCR Honda rider
Sunny skies and ideal temperatures gave rise to a positive first day for CWM LCR Honda and one of their two new riders for next season, Cal Crutchlow.

The Briton enters his fifth season in MotoGP in 2015, and quickly got to grips with his new Honda RC213V, the third different machine he has ridden in the premier class. The Coventry-born rider spent the day adjusting the bike to his personal preferences, making a series of short runs as he lapped for the first time on the Honda.

Crutchlow was the eighth fastest rider on the day, with a best lap of 1’31.847, and will continue his adaptation to his new CWM LCR Honda over the next two days of tests on Tuesday and Wednesday at Valencia.

Crutchlow commented, “It’s been a good first day with the CWM LCR Honda Team, and I’m pleased to say that we all worked well together. We made some small settings adjustments throughout the day that I thought were positive, but ultimately I’m learning to ride the Honda for the first time; it was a different experience, but enjoyable nonetheless. Today is just a familiarisation day and we made some shorter runs because I didn’t really understand some things in some corners, but we are quite pleased with the initial pace of me riding the Honda.”

Bradl and Baz make their debuts on board Forward Yamaha
For both it was the first time ever on board the Forward Yamaha. For incoming former Superbike rider Baz, it was his the debut on board a MotoGP™ machine.

Baz was the first to enter the track, followed immediately after by Bradl. The former Moto2™ World Champion completed 50 laps in total, setting a best lap time of 1’32.209, finishing in 12th position. Bradl’s first impression of the Forward Yamaha was very positive and tomorrow he will continue his work on the bike, especially on the electronics.

It was a good start also for Baz who completed 55 laps setting a quickest lap time of 1’33.834 and finishing in 20th position. The Frenchman focused on getting confidence with the new bike and the tyres.

Bradl commented, “It was a very productive day, I’m happy. The first impression is positive, I expected something like this, even if the bike is different compared to my previous machine. There is a lot of work to do on the electronics to adapt my style and improve the braking stability, but I’m satisfied. I like how the bike turns and I’m sure I can adapt my riding style to the new machine.”

Baz added, “My adventure in MotoGP has started. I’m very satisfied with the work done today although there are a lot of things to do. I need to know better how the Bridgestone tyres and the carbon brakes work. The first impression was positive. Arriving from the Superbike, I found the machine more rigid. Regarding the lap times, I’m happy because I was able to improve constantly and I’m not too far from the other riders. Tomorrow we will continue to work on the electronics to gain more confidence with the bike. I look forward to going back on track.”

First day with Suzuki for Espargaro and Viñales
Commencing a new chapter at the Valencia post-season test both Spanish riders know there is plenty of work ahead for them and the Japanese engineers working on Suzuki’s return to MotoGP in 2015, but they are motivated for the challenge in front of them.

Espargaro registered a solid best lap of 1’32.315 to end up 14th on the Monday test timesheet. Reflecting on the day’s work he said, “Really happy. I was a bit nervous at the beginning but I enjoyed riding. The bike was a bit better than what I expected, the frame is fantastic and the bike is turning really, really well. Also the electronics work better than the Open one. We know that we need a lot more power though, as the top speed is really low. But even like that we’re not too far from the top guys, 1.3 seconds is ok because we are 20km/h down in terms of speed. We have a lot of work in front of us, but we are ready.”

Espargaro’s new colleague Viñales was less than a second behind him and commented on his first contact with the Suzuki MotoGP bike, “I think the bike is really good, because you know it’s just the first day. I feel really good on the bike and I’m very happy. Tomorrow we can adjust the traction control up and make a good lap. The difference from Moto2 is in the acceleration, corner by corner it’s much faster, so I need to improve there.”

Day 2 Testing completed:
Torrential rain affects second day of MotoGP™ Valencia test
Many of the championship’s biggest name riders decided not to take any risks in the rain with the likes of Repsol Honda’s Dani Pedrosa, Movistar Yamaha MotoGP’s Jorge Lorenzo and Monster Yamaha Tech 3 pair Pol Espargaro and Bradley Smith electing not to ride – having all featured towards the top of the timesheet on Monday.

Indeed Italian rider Petrucci (1’42.431) was over a second ahead of the next fastest participant as he spent his second day working with his new team Pramac Racing, adapting to their Ducati machine.

Having not ridden on Monday Drive M7 Aspar rider Nicky Hayden put in 24 laps and ended up second, with the new RC213V-RS Open machine now available to the American. Further down the timesheet Hayden’s new colleague Eugene Laverty was also on track, as he undertook his second day’s work with the Aspar team.

Movistar Yamaha MotoGP’s Valentino Rossi was fourth fastest, but only completed eight laps, with Repsol Honda’s World Champion Marc Marquez completing 16 laps and ending the day eighth.

Meanwhile, having noted that his new RC213V factory Honda specification bike is significantly different to ride than his 2014 Open machine, Team Estrella Galicia Marc VDS rider Scott Redding put in 42 laps on the wet track and ended up third (+1.382s).

Redding crashed towards the end of the day without consequences, whilst there were also crashes for Petrucci, Loris Baz (NGM Forward Racing) and Cal Crutchlow (CWM LCR Honda). Crutchlow crashed early in his only run, not marking a lap time and deciding not to go back out for a second outing.

Factory Aprilia Gresini pair Alvaro Bautista and Marco Melandri – the latter yesterday confirmed to ride for the team next year in MotoGP – both also featured with Bautista the busiest man of the day as he notched up 47 laps in fifth place on the timesheet.

The test will conclude on Wednesday with the riders and teams hoping for dry weather conditions at the Valencia track.

Grand Prix Commission announce updates to Sporting Regulations
Sporting Regulations – Effective 2015

Riders or other persons using scooters for track familiarisation must wear a crash helmet.

Use of motorcycles from other disciplines, (motocross, enduro, supermoto, etc.) may be used for track familiarisation away from events without restriction.

Teams in the Moto3 and Moto2 classes, testing on either of their designated circuits, may not use a contracted rider from another team in the same class.

In a situation where a rider anticipates the start with a slight movement but then stops, and is stationary when the red light goes out, Race Direction will be the sole judge of whether an advantage has been gained and if a penalty will be imposed.

When riders are adjudged to have exceeded the track limits during the race then Race Direction will decide what penalty is to be imposed. (Automatic drop of position is no longer the only possible penalty).

When a group of riders are being lapped and the blue flag is displayed then there can be no changes of position within the group of riders until the rider lapping them has passed.

Technical Regulations – Effective 2015

Moto3 and Moto2 Classes
Moto3 class engines are allocated randomly during the season in three separate batches. To ensure that engines in the different batches, from the same manufacturer, are of identical specification, an engine will be selected at random from each distribution and used as a reference to check randomly selected engines from subsequent distributions.

Permission has already been granted to Moto3 class teams to use their 2014 chassis in 2015 instead of buying new a chassis. However, to prevent any advantage by using higher specification components, not provided with the 2015 chassis packages, it was decided that any team taking this option may only use the standard front and rear suspension packages as supplied with the 2015 chassis.

The temperature of fuel used in Moto3 and Moto2 class machines may not be artificially reduced. Fuel must be at the ambient temperature as defined by the Technical Director.

Dell’Orto has been the exclusive supplier of ECU’s to the Moto3 class for the first three years of this class. Based on the good experience with the Dell’Orto hardware and knowledge gained by the Championship and teams on settings and data acquisition, it was decided to renew the contract with Dell’Orto for a further three years. This will also allow for continued use of existing product stock.

MotoGP Class
The details of the procedure for technical control of MotoGP class engines were confirmed. MotoGP class engines may be required to be dismantled for checking by the Technical Director. However, the team may then rebuild that engine, using new parts, and the engine may then be used for the balance of its normal life, determined as 3,600 km.

Other Matters

The Indianapolis Grand Prix was awarded the title of Best Grand Prix of 2014.

A regularly updated version of the FIM Grand Prix Regulations which contains the detailed text of the regulation changes may be viewed shortly on:

Marquez ends Valencia test ahead of MotoGP™ rivals
Marquez was 0.146s ahead of his teammate Dani Pedrosa, who was second quickest on Wednesday with a time of 1’31.119 and fourth best over the three days of the test. The Honda pair undertook back-to-back comparisons with their 2014 and 2015 RC213V machines, Marquez’s best time registered on a 2014 prototype.

Movistar Yamaha MotoGP rider Jorge Lorenzo was third on Wednesday and second overall this week, with a best time of 1’31.164 from day three compared to his timesheet topping Monday best lap of 1’30.975. Lorenzo and colleague Valentino Rossi worked on testing chassis and exhaust upgrades, with Rossi completing the test sixth overall.

Monster Yamaha Tech 3’s Pol Espargaro and Bradley Smith showed good pace over the three days with various 2014 factory parts filtering through from Yamaha for both riders. On the combined timesheets, Espargaro was third best and Smith fifth.

Pramac Racing pair Yonny Hernandez and Danilo Petrucci looked good inside the Wednesday top ten, with Hernandez enjoying his first dry session on the GP14.2. Ducati test rider Michele Pirro rode with a special mechanism to test swingarm torsion and ended Wednesday’s session in 12h place, 14th overall over the three days.

Cal Crutchlow’s first test with CWM LCR Honda on a factory spec RC213V concluded with him 0.8s off Marquez’s best time in 10th on Wednesday, with the Briton getting more laps under his belt on the final day.

Aleix Espargaro and Maverick Viñales continued their adaptation to the new Suzuki MotoGP GSX-RR bike, Espargaro working on getting ergonomics right as his foot was touching the exhaust on Monday.

Meanwhile rookies such as Jack Miller, Loris Baz, Eugene Laverty notched up further track time with their respective new rides. New team Factory Aprilia Gresini were working with new aluminium calipers with their two riders Alvaro Bautista and Marco Melandri gaining experience on the Italian manufacturer’s machinery.

Wednesday’s session wraps up the official MotoGP group tests for 2014, though further private tests at Jerez and Sepang are planned for some riders, before the winter test ban commences in December.

Repsol Honda pair satisfied with results from final 2014 test
It was Marquez’s first outing on the updated 2015 prototype (since summer Brno test) and it proved very valuable for the HRC engineers. Marquez reported positively on some areas, including the chassis front end, but admitted the engine braking, exit of corner and also rear of the chassis still needs work. His fastest time of 1’30.973 (just 0.130 off Rossi’s pole time on Saturday) on lap 58 of 68 (aboard the 2014 machine) placed him fastest on this final day.

Pedrosa, who spent a few laps on the new machine on Monday, continued his test programme and commented on the more powerful Honda engine. He also confessed the new 2015 RC213V needs some fine tuning before the lights go out in Qatar at the end of March. His time of 1’31.119 (lap 23/57) – on the 2015 prototype – put him in second place behind his teammate.

This is the final test for Repsol Honda before the Winter testing ban kicks in at the end of November. The next time Marquez and Pedrosa will be on track will be in Malaysia in February 2015.

Marquez reflected, “It went well because we were able to gather a lot of data. We tried out both bikes: this year's and the 2015 machine. The new prototype has more potential in some aspects but, as is normal, I felt better with the 2014 bike - with which I set my fastest time. It’s true that in one day we have not had too much time to work on setting up the new prototype, but I think that it has potential and that this test has been important for Honda because of the information obtained. The HRC engineers have also found out which way to go this Winter to try to improve for the test in Malaysia, which takes place in February. Thanks to all my team and to all the fans for an unforgettable 2014!”

Pedrosa stated, “Wednesday testing was a lot more productive. The weather allowed us to set better times and we were able to put in a lot of laps to try out things with the new engine and new bike. Overall the test has been positive and the job of all our colleagues in HRC this Winter will be very important. The technicians here in Valencia have gathered a lot of data to take back to Japan and I’m sure we’ll see a big development when we’re back on track in Sepang next year.”

Last Valencia testing session wraps up 2014 for Yamaha
Similar to Tuesday, the seven hour long session started with a completely drenched track, forcing the team to wait for conditions to improve before heading out. With a little more than four hours remaining Lorenzo decided to join the action. He quickly picked up the pace and moved to the top of the standings after his 14th lap, clocking a 1’31.464.

Using this as a benchmark, Lorenzo spent the rest of the session preparing for next year’s season, as the pace noticeably quickened towards the end of the session. Though he was unable to beat his time from Monday, the Spaniard showed improvement in his times and signed the 2014 season off with a positive feeling. He completed 64 laps in total and his best efforts of a 1'31.164 put him in third place in Wednesday’s testing results, just 0.191s off the front.

Rossi started the session around the same time as his teammate and soon climbed up the order, rising to second place, just 0.012s behind him. The nine-times World Champion focused on testing new parts for the 2015 machine and went the extra mile to provide feedback. He completed 68 laps in total and wrapped up the third day of testing in fifth place, posting a best time of 1’31.301, just 0.328 off the front.

Lorenzo commented, “In general I’m quite satisfied, because we tried some things we couldn’t try yesterday and it was slightly better. The new parts are not a really big improvement but they’re a step forward, so I am happy about this test. It's been a long and tough season but it's not yet over for me: in few days I'll fly to Indonesia for some promotional activities and after that I will take the occasion to spend some days off in Bali with friends. In December I will participate in a car race and after that, finally, I will head to a sunny place for Christmas. In the meantime I will work hard to be back in 2015 stronger and ready for the new season.”

Rossi added, “We had some different stuff that we wanted to try, so we waited yesterday in the wet and worked a little bit on it today. Today was important, because it was the last day of testing before the winter and I feel good with the bike. We have some new things: a different swing arm and chassis. We also tried different parts to follow the new weight limit of the bike. I’m happy about the test. More or less everything about it was positive, so we did a good job today. From one side we need a bit of rest because it has been a long season, but on the other side I’m sure that in two or three weeks time we will miss the racing, but now it’s winter time so it’s time to relax.”

Cheers guys. A few more from Day 3
Espargaro and Smith on performance boosting test in Valencia
In Wednesday’s final day of testing the MotoGP™ riders began the action just after midday due to waiting for the track to dry from the previous day’s rain, then Espargaro completed 53 laps in total as he continued his test programme on the new specification Yamaha YZR-M1.

He focused specifically on electronics and front end settings with a definite improvement being achieved as he clocked a best lap of 1’31.288. This time was only 0.315s back from the leading bike, but his lap from Monday, which was nearly two tenths quicker than his Wednesday best, sees him seize third overall and his testing performance at Valencia leaves him positive ahead of the winter break.

Espargaro stated, “The test was a really productive one and I am very pleased with the end result. I was able to produce consistent and competitive lap times which leaves me in a positive fame of mind for the winter break. I decided not to ride on Tuesday as the injury to my foot is not completely healed yet and I opted to wait for better conditions in order to finish my testing schedule. I worked through different aspects, including both new parts as well as setup options.”

“There were not any major modifications, but certainly plenty of small factors which came together to make a difference. We focused on the electronics, the front end of the bike as well as confirming some of the adjustments that we tried on Monday. The thing I am most happy about is we found a strong setting with the electronics for when the tyre drops, which we have experienced difficulties with this season. Now I think we definitely deserve a rest which I am certainly looking forward as I want to spend some time with my family and friends, before getting ready for Sepang in February."

Meanwhile Bradley Smith finished the end of season test in formidable form to clinch fifth position in the combined standings after conducting an in depth and thorough testing programme.

"Wednesday was a busy day all in all, but I am pleased with what we achieved as we undertook a lot of work and tested many different aspects,” said Smith. We concentrated on experimenting with new parts and concepts which we received, rather than investing time in changing already proven settings. This included modifications to the new suspension as well as engine braking and traction control ideas, which gave us more general knowledge for the future and further ideas for our armoury. I am happy with how it went and we also found some intriguing data with the front forks. In addition, I sampled the new Brembo callipers which will be good for the future.”

Suzuki pleased with progress at Valencia test
The 25 year-old Spaniard, who finished seventh in the 2014 MotoGP™ Championship this year, put in a best lap of 1’31.973 on his 34th lap of a total of 41 laps on Wednesday, shaving off more than 0.3s from Monday’s ‘Day 1’ time in his first ride aboard the 2015 Suzuki GSX-RR.

That Wednesday lap left Espargaro and Suzuki exactly one second behind World Champion Marc Marquez who topped the test timesheet.

Espargaro’s new teammate Maverick Vinales also got to grips with the extra power of the GSX-RR, to finish in 18th position with a time of 1’33.216.

Espargaro explained, “I'm really happy with our first test. Unfortunately, due to the rain we missed the second day completely, but we learned a lot about the bike.”

“The first day was just for understanding the bike and finding the right position, but on Wednesday we could try to go to the limit of the bike, and I found that the frame is really good. It turns and handles really easily. We also made big steps with the electronics-side and we made good improvements on the traction control and engine braking. I'm quite optimistic with the package we have and it was good that I could make lap times that were not so far from the top guys. Now I'm really looking forward to the next test and further development.”

Viñales added, “I'm very happy overall with the test and quite satisfied that I could make plenty of laps as it was very important for me to learn the feel on the MotoGP bike. I found better grip on the bike with the hard tyre and could set the same lap times I made on the first day when I rode with a soft tyre. I have learned a lot about the bike and I had so much fun riding it! I look forward to the next test in Jerez, as we have lots more to try there.”

Team Manager Davide Brivio commented, “I'm pleased with this test, and now I'm really looking forward to working with our new riders next year. We received a lot of feedback and comments from both riders which were very interesting to hear, especially Aleix with his MotoGP experience, while Maverick, who was riding a MotoGP bike for the first time, had made a softer approach, trying to avoid any risks.”

“Of course, we still have some areas which have to be improved, such as the engine performance and the electronics, and we will test more in Jerez at the end of the month. Hopefully we will be able to conclude 2014 with another positive test and will be able to start 2015 with a fully sorted bike at the start of the season.”

Aprilia’s Albesiano: ‘We are satisfied with these first tests’
Aprilia arrived for testing on the Ricardo Tormo circuit, which represented a taste of the 2015 season with Gresini Racing who will be managing the Italian bikes in the MotoGP class.

Marco Melandri and Alvaro Bautista threw a leg over the Aprilia MotoGP bike for the first time, also having two of the brand new pneumatic valve distribution engines available.

A brand new engine that needs to be dialled in, especially in terms of electronic management, and a completely new bike for the two riders. After four years in the Superbike championship, Melandri had the additional issue of regaining familiarity with Bridgestone tyres and carbon brakes. So the goal for this first outing was to build experience, put in a lot of laps and collect as much data as possible. However, there was no lack of positive indications, especially in terms of potential – and therefore the possibility for development – of both the bike and the powerplant.

The work plan, which originally had only the test rider Alex Hofmann lapping on Monday, was changed due to adverse weather conditions. Both Melandri and Bautista took to the track straight away, even if for only a few laps, on Monday afternoon. It turned out to be a good decision since the second day was characterised by a constantly wet track due to persistent rain.

The situation on Wednesday was decidedly better. The riders went out on the track in the late morning and kept testing until 5pm. 68 laps for Bautista and 56 for Melandri are a testament to the amount of work done.

Melandri said, “We took a completely new bike out on its maiden run - what a great experience! For me I had to get used to some very different tyres than the ones from my Superbike seasons. That's why it was important to take a lot of laps and accumulate data and a feeling with the bike. From that point of view I am satisfied because I'm starting to figure out where to make changes and how. The bike is different than the Aprilia ridden in SBK but it was "born well" and responds well to changes. There is a lot of work to do and the next tests at Jerez will be important.”

Bautista added, “The results are positive although we obviously are aware that there is still a lot of work to do. The engine needs to be improved, but already at the end of the month we'll test the new pneumatic valve unit at Jerez. As for the chassis, we didn't make any changes to the suspension setup and geometries during these tests. We'll begin doing that at Jerez in the next testing session.”

Romano Albesiano, Aprilia Racing Manager, has positive feelings about the first outing, saying “We are satisfied with these first tests. For us this was a true début with all the unknown factors one might expect, but at the end of these three days we can look toward the future development steps with confidence. The new bike proved to be very well balanced straight away and the pneumatic valve engine that we tested on Friday impressed Hofmann with its top shelf performance and rideability.”

“Now all that's left is to get back to work at Noale with the data collected to prepare the developments we'll be taking to the next tests at Jerez.”


Crutchlow and Miller content with first CWM LCR Honda workouts
Heavy rain on Tuesday had interrupted Crutchlow’s work with his new Honda RC213V, but in the third and final day of the test on Wednesday the British rider put in a solid stint of 53 laps.

Making a series of short runs throughout the day, Crutchlow was finally able to improve on his best lap time of the test so far, setting a 1’31.774 late in the day on a used set of tyres. The day wasn’t without incident as the 29 year-old experienced a strange crash when he highsided at turn one after water got onto his rear tyre, however despite some damage to his knees and his hands, he was able to return to the track and set his best times.

Crutchlow will now return to his Isle of Man home before beginning his pre-season training programme in California ahead of his next test session with the CWM LCR Honda Team at the start of February in Malaysia.

He reflected, “Overall I think we can be quite pleased with the performance during these test sessions. We didn’t really focus on the lap time that much, but more on improving my understanding of the bike and how to ride it. We made a few changes to the chassis set-up and the electronics package, but it is still quite difficult for me to understand at the moment. That’s why I’m happy that we were able to set our fastest lap time with the old tyre.”

“Unfortunately I had a fairly heavy crash when going through turn one. I dragged my knee through some standing water on the inside of the corner and it splashed water out onto my back tyre, so I highsided when I got on the throttle. There’s a bit of pain in my knees and my hands, particularly my thumb, but I was able to go back out on track. Finally, I’m glad we’ve gathered a lot of data that both the CWM LCR Honda Team and HRC can analyse over the winter, so now it is time to have a good rest and then prepare for testing again at Sepang in February 2015.“

Meanwhile Miller put in 61 laps on an Open Honda on Wednesday with a best time of 1’33.746. Having moved from a bike with less than a quarter of the power of his new MotoGP machine, this test was always about the Australian familiarising himself with the package he will race in 2015. Both he and the CWM LCR Honda Team were extremely happy with his quick adaptation and they will get another chance to improve that rapport when he joins other MotoGP rookies for an extra test in Malaysia at the end of this month.

“It’s been an impressive three-day test, and it’s a shame we only got to ride two due to the weather,” acknowledged MIller. “Nonetheless I’m really happy with the progress we’ve made with the bike over these days, everything has been new like the weight and the power, but it’s been a great experience.”

“I’ve improved every single time I’ve exited the pits, and I can’t wait to get more bike time in Malaysia at the end of the month. As we get more experience we will be able to work a lot more on improving the electronics and the set-up to get a better feeling with the bike.”

It's nice to see Suzuki and Aprilia are happy thus far, next testing isn't till February 2015 Wednesday’s session wraps up the official MotoGP group tests for 2014, though further private tests at Jerez and Sepang are planned for some riders, before the winter test ban commences in December.
