MotoGP chiefs have confirmed the scheduled Kymiring test will go ahead in the middle of August.
Six riders will be on track representing the MotoGP manufacturers. 2010 Moto2 World Champion Stefan Bradl is on test duty for Honda, with ever-impressive wildcard performer Michele Pirro taking the reins at Ducati. Former WorldSBK Champion Sylvain Guintoli represents Suzuki, with premier class podium finisher and recent Moto2 runner Jonas Folger putting the laps in for Yamaha.
KTM, meanwhile, field local hero Mika Kallio as he gets a first taste of his new home track, with the high calibre line-up completed by Bradley Smith testing for Aprilia, fresh from making a little history as a podium in the opening race for the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup means he’s now taken rostrum finishes in every single class he’s raced in from the 125 World Championship through Moto2, MotoGP and now MotoE.
Track time will be from 10:00 to 17:00 local time, with a final slot from 17:00 to 18:00 when some local heroes will have the chance to do some laps too.
