Day 2 of the Sepang Shakedown saw Stefan Bradl and Honda join the fray, as well as Maverick Viñales for Aprilia Racing. The Noale factory’s concessions allow their race riders, Viñales and teammate Aleix Espargaro, to take part in the Shakedown. Fabio Di Giannantonio (Gresini Racing MotoGP™) was sidelined with illness on Tuesday.



The third and final day of the Sepang Shakedown saw Aleix Espargaro join Aprilia Racing teammate Maverick Viñales on track as the Noale factory continue to benefit from concessions, allowing their race riders to take part.

Another headline saw Cal Crutchlow join the Yamaha contingent following the recent announcement that the Brit would be continuing as Monster Energy Yamaha test rider for another two years.



The number 35’s running was limited on Day 3, however. Fabio Di Giannantonio (Gresini Racing MotoGP™), meanwhile, remained sidelined with illness on Wednesday. The rookie is now looking to return to the track on Saturday as the two-day official Sepang Test begins.
