GMT94 YAMAHA, 2018 WORLD ENDURANCE RUNNER UP

GMT94 - gmt94 yamaha, 2018 world endurance runner up

By finishing in 6th position the 8 hours of Suzuka, David Checa, Niccolò Canepa and Mike Di Meglio finish the 2018 season as World Endurance runner up.

 

Christophe Guyot: “The start of the race was difficult. The wet and dry track conditions disrupted the good pace we had during the tests. It was not possible for us to find the performance we had also experienced on a wet track. After four hours of racing the FCC n°5 took lead of a lap and a half and the riders could not find the solution. None of them, however, gave up. They drew deep inside themselves to finally find the pace we expected. David Checa first bringing our Yamaha R1 close to 2'11.0, then Niccolò Canepa author of a 2'10.3. The performance was found. Mike Di Meglio confirmed this renewal of shape by achieving a very good wet track stint before concluding on a dry track by achieving lap times as the top machines. We came back within 40 seconds of the "5" having even managed to take the fifth position in favor of refuelling. The mechanics were also perfect. We are the team that spent the least time at the pit lane. Congratulations to them. Congratulations to the 21 Yamaha who won the race for the fourth time in a row. And see you for our next race in the World Supersport Championship in September 14/15/16 in Portimão, Portugal.”
