The Repsol Honda Team greeted the start of an exciting new season; making their first appearance on stage together was the formidable 2011 Repsol Honda Team: Dani Pedrosa, Andrea Dovizioso and Casey Stoner unveiled the new RC212V.
As it was in 1995, when Mick Doohan, Alex Criville and Shinichi Ito first rode in Repsol Honda colors, HRC lines up a three-rider team again, for the first time in the MotoGP four stroke era.
Here’s a clip from the finish of testing at Sepang:
Repsol Honda riders led by Casey Stoner took the top four places in the second pre-season MotoGP Test at Malaysia's Sepang circuit on Thursday, the final day of the three-day test.
Hitting the top of the timesheet in 1 min 59.665 seconds, Stoner and his Honda counterpart Dani Pedrosa, who came in at 1:59.803, both broke the 2:00 mark and beat Valentino Rossi's 2009 circuit lap record.
Honda's Marco Simoncelli came third with a best time of 2:00.163 and Andrea Dovizioso was the final rider to get within a second of his team-mate Stoner, posting a fastest time of 2:00.541.
We’re excited for this season to get started and thankfully, it’s not too far away! Go Honda!
