The Repsol Honda Team leave the Misano Circuit pleased with what they achieved and ready for the end of 2019 and beyond after diligent work in Italy.
MotoGP World Championship leader Marc Marquez did a total of 168 laps aboard his Repsol Honda Team RC213V across the two days of running at the Italian circuit. The test saw Marquez and his team of engineers working not just for the Misano race but also assessing and evaluate options for the future. Posting a 1’32.905, Marquez ended the test as the tenth fastest rider on the combined times.
Jorge Lorenzo’s test was cut short after experiencing some pain while on the bike during running on Thursday morning. Lorenzo and the team elected to limit his testing to give Lorenzo the maximum amount of time possible to recover physically ahead of the Misano race, September 15. Before ending his test, Lorenzo was able to complete 31 laps as he assessed the Honda RC213V around the 4.2km long Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli.
Action resumes at Misano on September 13 when the San Marino GP begins. Both Marc Marquez and Jorge Lorenzo are confident that their findings from the test will allow them to be competitive from FP1 on Friday morning.
