VIVA – The first day of the MotoGP pre-season test at Mandalika was hampered. The session was stopped due to a dirty circuit.
It took about an hour for the committee to clean up so that the green flag could be raised and the racers returned to the track. This also made the schedule slightly changed.
Previously, the session was held from 09.00 WITA to 17.00 WITA. But the committee gave an additional 45 minutes, so the test will end at 17.45 WITA.
During the break, the racers and teams also had time to show off their dirt at the Mandalika circuit. Among them is the Honda team.
They uploaded a video of the team cleaning Pol Espargaro’s waerpack which was covered in circuit dirt.
The same thing was done by the Tech3 team and Suzuki. They showed mud stuck to the racer’s clothes and motorbikes.
