Noriyuki Haga has crashed his Xerox Ducati for the second time during testing at the Kyalami circuit this morning.

In his first crash the former Yamaha man collided with Briton Jonathan Rea in only his second lap of the day at 9.20am this morning. His second crash occurred just before lunch whilst lying tenth in the standings.

Haga was unclear exactly what caused the second crash, but the Japanese rider is thought to have lost the rear of the bike exiting a left hand corner causing him to high side.

Haga was unhurt in the crash and is expected to return to the track this afternoon after his mechanics have rebuilt his number one bike for the second time today.
