Barcelona - Spain

Race resume

After having made a great comeback in Race 1, Jules Cluzel was keen to do well in this second race. After a good start, Jules climbed back up to the top 5 group halfway through the race, before experiencing an huge drop in rear grip. Sliding terribly in every long corner, Jules quickly lost more than two seconds per lap. He finished 15th, when the top 5 was well within reach, and the podium group would have been visible from a better position on the starting grid. A frustrating race, but rich in lessons learned. The drop in grip was sudden, unexpected and unprecedented, so the GMT94 Yamaha team is working with Pirelli to better understand the reasons of the problem. The team would like to congratulate Jules for his great race and his excellent pace, which shows his speed on the GMT94 Yamaha R6. The machine gave his rider a very good feeling with his front tyre, and also got the best top speed in Race 1.

Andy Verdoia finished Race 2 just outside the points, crossing the finish line in 16th place.

We’ll see you in two weeks at Portimao (Portugal). A circuit that has often smiled on GMT94 and Jules Cluzel, as they won the race together last season.
