It was under a typically Catalan sun that the GMT94 Yamaha riders started their weekend on the Barcelona track.

In Supersport Valentin Debise started his Friday at the Spanish circuit with a very good rhythm in FP1. Unfortunately the French rider could not confirm his good form due to a technical problem in FP2. Valentin Debise and the team remain confident for tomorrow’s qualifying and race.

Lorenzo Baldassarri’s side continues to follow the roadmap, working and progressing on the Yamaha R1. Emilio Alzamora, the manager of the 2022 World Supersport Vice Champion, confirms that the team and the rider are heading in the right direction.

However, Ten Kate rider Stéfano Manzi showed that a 600cc Yamaha could take advantage of a very agile chassis […]
