Back to school for GMT94 in Spain and Portugal

23 January 2024

Test

From 24 to 30 January, the GMT94 Yamaha team will head to Spain for private testing at the Jerez de la Frontera track (Spain) for seven days of training and set-up.
Lucas Mahias (Yamaha R6 number 94) and Philipp Öttl (Yamaha R1 number 5), the 2024 riders of the French structure who were able to train this winter on their practice bikes, are eager to get back to their team. 
After a promising first test at Aragon last November, Lucas Mahias will have three days (January 26, 27 and 28) to fine-tune his Yamaha R6 for the Val de Marnais team. 
Philipp Öttl, meanwhile, has completed a series of laps on a factory Yamaha R1. He will now get to know his Yamaha R1 for the World Superbike season and take his first laps in Jerez (24 and 25 January), then on the Portimao circuit (Portugal).
These test days will also be used to prepare the photos and videos that will serve as the basis for the posters, the press kit and some technical reports on the new 2024 models. 

Note that a live presentation with riders and Christophe Guyot will be broadcast live on Facebook and Youtube on January 26 at 7pm from the GMT94 Yamaha box in Jerez.
