Jorge Lorenzo sets the best time on the second day of private tests at Motorland

The second day of private tests in the circuit of Motorland Aragon has left Jorge Lorenzo at the top of the timesheets with a record of 1.48'244, a better time than the one achieved by the Spaniard the day before but that is still a bit far of the 1.47'983 that Dani Pedrosa did on Tuesday. Jorge Lorenzo continued to test the chassis with 2013 specifications, different from the one he tested on Monday in Brno as well as a new engine.

At the end of the day, the Yamaha decided to complete a race drill mounting the new experimental tire that Bridgestone had brought, although he was not happy with it because the bike suffered a lot of chattering and had bad sensations. Still they managed to be a second faster than last time.

Dani pedrosa with a 1.48'499 he signed the second best time working towards the remaining races and it is even deducted from his statements for next season. The Honda fitted a new rear shock absorber looking to get more grip and a different exhaust that improves power delivery. Although this escape was not perfect, if you have seen the possibilities that it has with some renovations later on.

Third has been Stefan bradl again on the factory motorcycle like that of the Repsol Honda team. The Japanese factory asked the German to get on it to help them find more grip on the rear wheel, and he hopes that this information will also help him improve his bike for the races he lacks.

Ben spies With a record of 1.48'946, he signed the fourth fastest time testing the bike for the full race distance and putting in advance work for when he comes to race here looking for the optimal settings for this track. Hasn't tried anything new (logically not continuing with Yamaha in 2013), but if small details such as new settings in the damping and electronics of the Yamaha.

Finally, Jonathan Rea that it already seems so will run in Misano and Aragon replacing the injured Casey Stoner, he continues his adaptation to the Honda RC213V and again improved his chrono, in this case in half a second until stopping it at 1.50'057, very close to that of Ben Spies and also achieved in the last lap of the race simulation that he did.
