IMPRESSIVE END TO FIRST TEST FOR CRUTCHLOW AND LCR HONDA

IMPRESSIVE END TO FIRST TEST FOR CRUTCHLOW AND LCR HONDA

The first official tests for the 2016 MotoGP season came to a close on Wednesday, after three days of intense work for Cal Crutchlow and the LCR Honda Team at Sepang in Malaysia. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t completely on-side for the LCR squad and the rest of the field, with a damp track in the morning preventing any action early on, whilst an afternoon rain shower limited late track-time.

The track did dry up sufficiently for Crutchlow to set his fastest time of the day, however, with an impressive 2’00.992 making him the fourth fastest rider on the timesheets. Due to track conditions, this was slightly down on the Briton’s benchmark from Tuesday, however that 2’00.899 was also set on the race-spec tyres, unlike some of the lap-times from his rivals. With sixth overall in the combined standings, and one of the quickest on hard rubber, the 30 year-old can be happy with his and the team’s efforts.

The LCR Honda Team were given an extra boost during the final day, when HRC allowed Crutchlow a chance to give his feedback on a 2016 version of their RC213V engine. With his input, development on that and the rest of the factory package will continue at the next official testing session at Phillip Island in Australia between February 17th and 19th.

CRUTCHLOW UPS THE PACE IN FIRST MOTOGP TEST

LCR Honda’s British rider, Cal Crutchlow, continued to increase his pace ahead of the 2016 MotoGP World Championship as he and the team took part in the second of three days testing at the Sepang circuit in Malaysia.

With the withdrawal of the soft rear tyre due to safety concerns, Crutchlow worked tirelessly with the harder option in the draining heat and humidity, eventually picking up his pace to improve on his Monday benchmark by well over a second and a half. He clocked a blistering 2’00.899 in the final moments of the day to place him fifth overall on the timesheets.

The test in Malaysia comes to a close on Wednesday, with more vital data still to be gathered before the teams pack up and head to Australia for the second of their three pre-season outings.

The MotoGP World Championship proper begins under floodlights in Qatar on March 20th.

LCR HONDA AND CRUTCHLOW BEGIN TESTING IN MALAYSIA

The 2016 MotoGP World Championship set its first wheels in motion today, as pre-season testing got began at the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia. For LCR Honda and their British star Cal Crutchlow it was a first chance to work on their Honda RC213V since tests at Valencia in Spain in mid-November.

With multiple regulation changes coming into force this season, these tests are crucial for the teams, particularly regarding data-gathering alongside new tyre suppliers Michelin as well as understanding what is now a common electronics package. During winter testing the LCR Honda Team are running a HRC Factory spec chassis fitted with an evolution of the 2015 engine, however by the first Round in Qatar, all Hondas will run the same engine spec.


The intense heat and humidity of Sepang make it perfect for testing the bike in extreme conditions, and despite temperatures soaring into the mid-30°C mark, Crutchlow put in a solid 42 laps before rain brought an early end to the day. The Brit’s best time came on his 36th lap of the track, with a 2’02.586 putting him tenth fastest overall, with another two days of work still to go.
