Marlboro Ducati's Casey Stoner is looking forward to testing the Desmosedici GP9 at Valencia a whole lot more than he is to the last two MotoGP rounds of the season.

The Aussie goes into the penultimate round of the season at Sepang, Malaysia in second place and has won there in every class, but testing the new carbon-framed bike is nearer the front of his mind.

"We'll give our best to finish the season in a positive way, with some good results, although to be honest my mind is on the test at the end of the season at Valencia, when we can start to work on the new Desmosedici." said Stoner.


"Over the last few rounds we've managed to set a good pace in all of the dry practice sessions and struggled a little bit in the wet. We think we found a good wet setting in Australia so unless there's an unexpected problem that crops up we should be okay for any conditions at Sepang.

"I like the track and I've got good memories because I've won there in every category - 125cc, 250cc (2004 and 2005) and MotoGP. The track is a good mix, there are some fast corners with a lot of lean angle and some tight ones that aren't much fun."
