Two-time MotoGP World Champion Casey Stoner has commenced testing for the 2015 Suzuka 8 Hours in Japan, taking his first laps on the MuSASHi RT HARC-PRO Honda CBR1000RR that he will race on 26 July.

Stoner’s opening day of testing ahead of the iconic event was washed with rain, circulating alongside event teammates Michael van der Mark and Takumi Takahashi on the defending champion #634 entry.

While the weather restricted track time and details from the circuit are minimal at this point, the MuSASHi RT HARC-PRO Honda outfit was sixth fastest overall in the day led by the Kohara RT Honda squad.
