Dunlop Tire Test Wraps Up At Daytona

SUMMARY: ***image1:right*** DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., (Dec. 12, 2002) -- The annual Dunlop tire test in preparation for March's Daytona 200 Week wrapped up on Thursday as motorcycle teams got about 90 minutes of track time in the morning before rain once again moved over the 3.56-mile road course at Daytona International Speedway.

The Dunlop tire test was originally scheduled for three days, but the sessions on Monday and Tuesday were washed out. The teams were able to log some significant hours on Wednesday and the test was extended for a half a day on Thursday because of the rain.

Ben Bostrom will leave the Dunlop tire test as the fastest rider. He posted the fastest lap of the test on Thursday morning when he toured the "World Center of Racing" with a lap of 117.965 mph (1 minute, 48.651 seconds) aboard his Honda RC51.

Bostrom, 1998 AMA Chevy Trucks U.S. Superbike champion, is returning to the United States after competing for three seasons in World Superbike. He replaces 2002 Daytona 200 By Arai winner Nicky Hayden in the American Honda family of riders as Hayden has moved to Europe to compete in MotoGP.
