Nevertheless, the number 94 driver remained confident for Saturday. This was confirmed in the qualifying session with a good time that put him in 7th position. In the race, Valentin Debise made his best start of the season and was 2nd at the end of the first lap. Best Yamaha rider until halfway through the race, the GMT94 rider finished in 8th place but can hope for a podium finish tomorrow.

In Superbike the work continues for Lorenzo Baldassarri. The GMT94 rider was unfortunately cut off in his momentum following a red flag in qualifying.

Lorenzo was still able to finish the race and gain valuable information for tomorrow.
