A lot over nothing - both days were rained off for Casey Stoner.

Casey Stoner’s second test has been rained off without a lap being done by the double world champion.

Much like last month, rain has played havoc again with Casey Stoner’s MotoGP reutrn (if you want to call it that). Stoner was at Motegi for two days last week, but unfortunately the gods don’t seem to want him back on a RC213V.

Stoner had been expected to do further testing on the 2014 RC213V that was tested last time by Stoner, and there was also plans for the Aussie to test the new production racer that Scott Redding and Karel Abraham will be on next season.  

In his last test, that was also hindered by rain on the first day, the Australian tested RC213V that Dani Pedrosa and Marc Marquez currently ride.

The test team will stay at Motegi with All Japan Superbike leader Takumi Takahashi testing in the wet conditions, and hoping for an improvement in the weather to test the production bike more. 

Stoner isn’t expected back in Japan until 2nd October when he will have his third two-day test, just three weeks before the MotoGP race – even though he won’t be racing don’t expect rumours to stop.
