Brno receives test bike and new logo

Repsol Riders Casey and Dani tested the new RC213V at Brno ahead of 2012's new 1000cc rules. I noticed too that the front mudguard (fender) the current bike has gained the HRC sticker. Last year the front mudguard had REPSOL and prior to this race, it had nothing. Time to order a HRC sticker for mine I reckon!

Storage boxes

I am starting to have lots of additional titanium bolts for the bike. Whilst on my travels. I found these neat little boxes. These are 'cool orange' and stack perfectly. They are from the really useful box company

Pro-bolt Engine bolts arrived

I have just recieved  a set of race spec engine bolts from Pro-bolt. The initial set wasn't right so after neary two months and a little help from Ten Kate it appears that the set is now correct. It doesn't include sump bolts so does not have all the bolts for the engine. It should make a nice weight reduction for the bike.

Dani Pedrosa and Casey Stoner tests the new 1000cc RC213v

After celebrating the all-Honda podium yesterday at Brno, the Repsol Honda Team returned back on track this morning for a one day test dedicated to the development of the Honda prototype for the 2012 MotoGP Championship.
It was a positive day of testing with both riders giving valuable feedback, which will allow the HRC engineers to continue the development of the new machine. As scheduled, the test began at 09h00 under dry conditions and finished at 18h00 with one hour lunch break.
Fortunately, the rain that was expected did not arrive until the final 30 minutes of the day, when the Repsol Honda Team had already finished their programme.
