Before passing through the gates of the Chang International Circuit for the second winter tests, some of the MotoGP riders treated themselves to some sight-seeing in Bangkok. Iannone, Zarco, Miller, Nakagami and Rins visited the Wat Arun temple and took in some dance and marionette shows.

The visit to the capital was also a chance to meet the Thai Prime Minister, General Prayut Chan-o-cha, who did the honours of welcoming MotoGP to Thailand.

The riders then headed to Buriram, where they will be busy on the track from Friday through Sunday, beginning at 2:50 AM GMT. will naturally be on hand with our correspondents to provide updates and all the relevant details.
