I just have a very inquiring way with web sites that interest me :D

MotoGP also do live timing, a lot of motorsports are going that way, BSB are also introducing it this season. It's cool especially if you can't get coverage of practice & qualifying sessions on TV. With AMA we get the races at least a week after they were run, now I can monitor a race live.

First day best times for Kawasaki which I've taken from the final timings:

5th #22 Tommy Hayden ZX-10R 1:25.861 + 1.153
7th #95 Roger Hayden ZX-10R 1:26.118 + 1.41
19th #6 Damon Buckmaster ZX-6RR 1:27.685
22nd #12 Ben Attard ZX-10R 1:28.317

Damon's must be Supersport & Ben on a Superstock bike. The timings on AMA site don't tell you. Interesting to see the name Yanagawa pop up on the timings at one time that I checked them. I'm wondering if it's the same Yanagawa that raced Kawasaki ZX-7RR in World Superbikes a few years back.

For us Brits Neil Hodgson was 4th with 1:25.766
For reference Mladin was 1st with 1:24.708

Kawasaki still have a lot to do to get with the leader but it's only day one of testing.

2nd day best times for Kawasaki which I've taken from Wednesday's final timings:

5th #95 Roger Hayden ZX-10R 1:25.417 + 0.969
7th #22 Tommy Hayden ZX-10R 1:25.618 + 1.170
15th #6 Damon Buckmaster ZX-6RR 1:27.067
18th #12 Ben Attard ZX-10R 1:27.393

Improvements all round, especially Roger.

A. Yanagawa popped up on the timings again. Gotta be Akira Yanagawa, does anyone know if he is a test rider for Kawasaki to back up the works effort this year?

Neil Hodgson was 9th with 1:25.825
For reference Mladin was 1st with 1:24.448

Good to see Ben Bostrum up in 2nd place, just 0.535 behind Mladin, especially after the disappointing seasons he's had in World Superbikes.

They have posted up PDF's for Tuesdays timings on the AMA site:

Only comment I've seen has been from the World Superbike PSG-I team:

'In the first major test at Sepang, Chris Walker has commented that chassis response and set up is much improved on the previous bike, with all team members highly impressed with the new ZX-10R.

Not even found any timings for the PSG-1 test at Phillip Island, let alone any reports. I'm thinking Kawasaki are playing things close to their chest until they get to the first race. I'm hoping to see a good start to the season & pull off a suprise podium or two :grin
