Navarra - Spain


This Wednesday, Jules Cluzel and Federico Caricasulo discovered the Navarra track on their Yamaha R6 GMT94. After 4 hours of riding, the GMT94 riders established a first base of settings.

Jules was able to get back on track after five months without a bike. After a few laps, the French rider quickly found his pace. Federico worked on the bike’s settings (suspension, balance and engine braking) to suit it him perfectly.

Both GMT94 riders congratulated the team on the level of performance given to this test. Without looking for a qualification lap time, both riders made a best lap of 1’41.7.

Jules Cluzel : “This is the first time since my injury at Aragon 2020, that I feel at 100% on the bike. I’m delighted because I’ve enjoyed riding my bike. The Navarra track is really nice, I think it can be a nice track for the fans.

Federico Caricasulo : “This is the first time I have met the whole GMT94 team and the GMT94 Yamaha R6. We immediately found the right way to set up the bike. The Navarra track is complete with fast and slow corners. I enjoyed and I can’t wait to get back on track tomorrow morning.
