Stoner completes three day Honda test

Casey got his first taste of the Sportsland Sugo circuit this week.

Casey Stoner has completed a private three-day test with Honda at the Sportsland Sugo circuit in Japan.

The former two time MotoGP world champion was in action from Monday to Wednesday, and he tested both the 2013 and 2014 RC213V Honda prototype machines.

Stoner was happy that this test wasn’t effected by rain, he didn’t get a chance to further test the Honda Production Racer he tested back in Motegi, instead that responsibility fell to Takumi Takahashi.

“It’s been quite a good three days and we got a lot of track time, considering it gets dark and cold here quite quickly!” said Stoner.

“We had a busy test schedule based on the current 2013 bike and an updated version of the 2014 bike. Both have some very positive aspects and we’re just trying to get a better understanding of them.

“It was a little tricky to get a true feeling here at Sugo as we had no comparison – with it being the first time we’ve ridden here.

“All in all, it was a good test and the first time we’ve not been interrupted by rain!”

Honda didn’t release any lap times.
