Sepang MotoGP Testing Times

By Sean Alexander, Jan. 26, 2004
I've compiled a quick listing of the fastest MotoGP times, as reported from recent testing in Sepang Malaysia. I don't know how honest the claimed times are, but if they are close, it looks like Rossi might not have it as tough as many suspected. I was unable to get times for the Suzuki Team, other than Hopkins' claim "I was able to get into the 2:03s today" I wonder where Ducati would be on this list, had they participated in the Sepang tests..... -Sean
