Ducati Team conclude private test at Misano


The Ducati Team riders wrapped up their private one-day testing session at the Misano Adriatico circuit at 18.30 after a full day out on track for Jorge Lorenzo, Andrea Dovizioso and Michele Pirro.

The test revolved around preparations for the San Marino and Riviera di Rimini Grand Prix, which will be held at the Adriatic Riviera circuit from 7-9 September.

Perfect weather and track conditions allowed the two factory Ducati riders to carry out the testing programme they had scheduled with their respective engineers, and they both set some excellent lap times.

Jorge Lorenzo completed a total of 72 laps, setting his quickest time in 1’31.9 while his team-mate Andrea Dovizioso did 90 laps with a best time of 1’32.5.
