Gibernau returns to action in Mugello test

Former MotoGP World Championship runner-up Sete Gibernau completed 20 laps of Mugello on the first of three days of testing for Ducati. Sete Gibernau in the Ducati Marlboro team garage in 2006 After more than 18 months away from 800cc riding, and indeed any kind of MotoGP activity, Sete Gibernau was reunited with the world of two wheels on Tuesday in Mugello. Participating in a hastily-arranged test for Ducati alongside regular test rider Vittoriano Guareschi, Gibernau rode twenty laps of the Italian circuit with the Desmosedici GP9 prototype, and only stopped on account of some unwelcome rainfall. The former MotoGP World Championship runner-up recorded a fastest time of 1'53.7, but the experience itself was more the attraction of the day.
