Race resume

The first day of free practices is coming to an end. There were two sessions of 1h50 each.

Corentin Perolari discovers the track, and maintains a very good pace. He is one second off the best lap of Randy Krummenacher. Corentin seems satisfied with his day, he was pleased on the track. He ends his day with the ninth time.
The contenders for the championship have been many to fall today. Unfortunately, Jules Cluzel did not derogate. Still, he finished the day with the third time, three tenth behind Randy Krummenacher.

GMT94 is delighted that its two bikes are at the top of the ranking.

Corentin Perolari: “It was a great day for me! I was happy to be on my bike, I had good feelings. Even though I did not know the track, I managed to adapt quickly. And I finish the day with a great time!

Jules Cluzel: “I spent all day with the team to find solutions to better feel my front train. That’s what will allow me to feel more confident about fast turns. We work a lot, and I’m glad I had a good time.

Christophe Guyot : “I am very happy today. Both bikes are in the top 10, it’s great! Corentin is impressive in his speed of adaptation, and he can be satisfied with his two sessions. Jules had an intense day. He is one of those who wants to achieve perfection at all levels, and that allows him to perform times like those of today.
