marc_marquez-2016Night two of the pre-season test at Losail International Circuit saw Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez entering the track a few minutes after 6 p.m. local time, with his teammate Dani Pedrosa following immediately afterward.

On his first run, Marquez improved on yesterday’s time by nearly half a second before crashing without consequences at turn one. He was able to quickly re-join the action and tried various chassis settings with his RC213V. Pedrosa also tried a number of setup options, improving his pace as the evening progressed. With approximately one hour remaining, both riders tried a new aerodynamic solution, using a new fairing with winglets.

Marc rode 42 laps this evening, with his best time of 1’56.046 occurring on lap 4. Dani also completed a total of 42 laps, setting his quickest time of 1’55.857 on his final lap. Temperatures were similar to the first evening, with air and ground maximums of 23° C.

The test will conclude tomorrow.
