“We achieved all of our objectives for this test and acquired a lot of data and rider feedback on the performance of the 2014 Factory and Open class machines on our new range of tires. It was particularly important to assess tire behavour on the new Open class machines. Lap times at this time of year are usually quicker than what we see for the race weekend later in the year, and riders commented that the track condition was quite good compared to last October. This meant lap times were quite quick during the test, with four riders lapping in the 1'59 bracket. This shows that once again, the combination of new machinery and new tires has pushed the performance level of MotoGP even higher.
