Additionally, the inclusion of highly anticipated Texas race at the Circuit of the Americas means that the Repsol Honda Team has already scheduled a private test there in March, with the possibility still remaining of other teams joining.

With the first test in Valencia at the end of last year largely a washout, riders will be eager to get out on track and get their season underway.

2013 Pre-Season Tests

13-14 Nov (2012) - MotoGP: Valencia

03-04 Feb - MotoGP CRT: Sepang

05-07 Feb - MotoGP: Sepang

12-14 Feb - Moto2/Moto3: Valencia

19-21 Feb - Moto2/Moto3: Jerez

26-28 Feb - MotoGP: Sepang

12-14 Mar - MotoGP HRC: Austin

18-21 Mar - Moto2/Moto3: Jerez

23-25 Mar - MotoGP: Jerez
So it looks like RepsolHonda will be in Austin TX for 3 days in March. To test. Only MotoGP testing tho. Not Moto2 or 3. And so far, it looks like only RepsolHonda will be there.
Is this a Honda PR thing?

Ah, another motogp.com member.
I wish SBK had a site like that.

Yeah, but the clap is mostly curable.
The GP2013 on the other hand...

I guess we've all heard Duc is blaming the tires. The tire rules changed after they were locked into a frame design. I heard or read at motogp.com that Duc may engineer a whole new frame for next year?
Ducati couldn't have been Cals first choice. Could he not have stayed with Tech 3 for another year? Or did Tech three already sign on someone else for '14?
