Today’s one-day post-race test in Brno officially started at 10:00 a.m. and was soon interrupted for two hours by a red flag in order to clean up some oil (left by trucks working overnight to remove some advertising banners). Around 1:30 p.m. the riders sporadically began taking to the track.
Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa got into action around 2:40, when track conditions improved enough to lap at a good pace, and ended when the track closed at 6:30. They tested a number of settings and electronic solutions and a new swingarm. Marc also tried two new Michelin front tyres that the French manufacturer asked the riders to test for 2017.
Marc had the third-fastest time of the day at 1’56.148 on lap 39 of 46. Dani finished the day seventh with a time of 1’56.857 on lap 29 of 43.
