In this very special 2020 year, the World Supersport Championship has stayed on the Aragon circuit for a second round in a row. This beginning of the week was the occasion for the GMT94 Yamaha team to analyse the data from the races of Jules and Corentin. After a notable improvement on the rear suspension last week, it is at the fork level that Christophe Guyot’s team found some interesting settings.
Tomorrow will be the occasion for the two GMT94 riders to try out these settings on the track during the two free practice sessions. A solution has also been found to offer Jules and Corentin better braking at the end of the race. In the last laps, when the bodies get tired, the braking power remains a weighty asset to overtake opponents.
Christophe Guyot: “Last weekend we took a new step on the bike settings. We are in a good dynamic, some very interesting ideas have been found by the technical team for this weekend. The goal is to finish on the podium again, but if it is also possible to get a little closer to the leader, we would be happy“.
See you tomorrow at 11.30 am and 04.00 pm (local time) for the two free practice sessions, with live timing on www.worldsbk.com.
