The show is about to begin with the opening round of the 2011 MotoGP championship being held this Sunday at Qatar. Practice is already underway, and after three practice sessions earlier today, Casey Stoner dominated, along with his Repsol Honda teammates. Stoner had the quickest time in each practice session, and in the final practice session the three Repsol Honda riders, Stoner, Dani Pedrosa and Andrea Dovizioso, posted the three quickest times. The Yamaha factory riders followed close behind Dovizioso, but well off Stoner’s pace. Defending champ Jorge Lorenzo notched the fourth quickest time on his factory Yamaha, while teammate Ben Spies was fifth quickest. The Ducatis, meanwhile, are still well off the pace as we enter the opening round of the series.
