From Monday to Wednesday this week (March 3-5), the Factory MotoGP teams of Honda, Yamaha and Ducati will be on-track at Phillip Island as they and two Moto2 squads engage in a tire-focused test at the Australian circuit.

Following last year’s Australian Grand Prix – when the premier class race was divided into two halves by pit-stops and the Moto2 event was shortened, due to the abrasive new track surface leading to severe tire wear – it was decided to organize this test at the island track which will host the 16th round of the 2014 season.
