More, from a press release issued by Gresini Racing:


Doni Tata Pradita made the most of the inclement weather at Jerez to complete a handful of laps and get some vital experience of riding his Suter Honda in the wet before the start of the new Moto2 season. The test, which was a virtual washout, also provided an ideal opportunity to try the new Starlane electronics. The Indonesian rider may not have done many laps today but it was important that he made some small steps to improve his feeling with the bike in wet conditions. The forecast is for better weather tomorrow.

More, from a press release issued by Gresini Racing:


As predicted by the local weather forecasts the rain moved in at Jerez today, hampering Team Honda Gresini Moto2's progress on the second day of the final test of preseason. Ratthapark Wilairot managed to complete 22 laps in order to gain confidence with his bike in wet conditions and was able to make a positive first evaluation of the new Starlane electronics. The team are now hoping for better conditions tomorrow so that they can complete their testing programme in the dry.
