Casey Stoner Will Test the Ducati Again at the Barcelona Test

Casey Stoner will be present in the next tests to be held at the Circuit of Catalunya along with Jorge Lorenzo and Andrea Doviozoso after the French Grand Prix, specifically on Tuesday 24 and Wednesday 25 May after the Le Mans Grand Prix.

The Ducati rider will be back on the Desmosedici GP17 after making it for the last time in the preseason test of Sepang, when he signed the best time of the first day.

In this next test there will also be other MotoGP riders and teams, and it will be the first opportunity to test the new chicane of the Catalunya´s Circuit that was modified after the accident in which Luis Salom lost his life last year during the training on Friday of the Gran Prix of Catalunya. In addition to the chicane, the riders will also be able to get used to the change made in the La Caixa curve, which will now use the Formula 1 variant.

The house of Borgo Panigale will also organize another test day with Lorenzo, Dovizioso and Michele Pirro on May 15 in Mugello to prepare the Italian Grand Prix. This time Stoner will not participate in the tests and it will do Jorge Lorenzo´s track analyst, Michele Pirro.
