As the other day we told you the scheduled Superbike preseason training schedule, all the dates of the tests of the MotoGP World Championship As well as the lower categories, they are defined so that the teams arrive as plugged as possible at the start of the World Cup on March 29 in Qatar.
For the MotoGP category there will be three days of training sessions distributed between Sepang and Qatar. They will start from February 4 to 7 and from February 23 to 26 in Malaysia and then be from March 14 to 17 in Losail a couple of weeks before the start of the season.
Likewise and as we also told you a few weeks ago, Michelin will be present in the preseason tests. In both Malaysia and Losail, the first three days will be on Bridgestone tires but the fourth and last, drivers will be able to use Michelin in order to adapt their motorcycles and offer feedback to the French manufacturers. We must remember that from 2016 they will return to 17 "wheels, with all the changes in the part of the cycle that this implies.
On the last day of practice of the first visit to Sepang, only the test pilots of the teams will have access to Michelin tires while at the end of February they will be able to use them on the entire grid.
In the small categories of Moto2 and Moto3, the first appointment will be from February 10 to 12 in Valencia, then traveling to Jerez from February 17 to 19 and also from March 17 to 19
