Test

On Wednesday July 8th and Thursday July 9th the GMT94 team was at the Barcelona circuit for testing ahead of the resumption of the World Supersport Championship in three weeks time.
Jules Cluzel and Corentin Perolari did many laps over the two days. The #16 Yamaha R6 rider finished the first day in 1’46.1, with consistent lap times in 46, having not ridden at this track for more than 10 years. Corentin Perolari, also broke the 47 mark, before riding regularly in 46 the next day. Jules approached the 44 mark on the morning of the second day, when the track conditions were cooler. While he was trying to get closer to 45.5, Corentin crashed without gravity, but causing damage to the bike which prevented him from starting again.
Next week the GMT94 team will head to Aragon circuit. Four races are scheduled on this track this year, making these tests very important.

Jules Cluzel: “I am really satisfied with these tests, I was able to quickly get fast following my test session on the Carole circuit. We found some important things before the race, like the gear ratio and suspension settings. We will be able to arrive confident on this track as from FP1 our bike will be ready to ride in good lap times. »
Corentin Perolari: “These two days have been a great help to me. I gained nearly a second between Wednesday and Thursday, which is very encouraging for the race. I appreciate the track, I feel good on the bike. Despite the crash I am getting back my confidence before going to Aragón for the test. »
