After a very good test at the Barcelona circuit, the GMT94 Yamaha team headed to the Aragon circuit on Sunday. Two days of testing awaited the GMT94 riders at the track that will host the first round of the World Supersport Championship.
The first day was cooler than the second, with a really cold wind. This did not prevent the riders from riding from the first day in the 2020 victory pace. A minor crash for each rider in Turn 2, which is known for its high number of front-end crashes, reduced the team’s track time.
The second day was ideal. Jules Cluzel finished the day in 1’53.6, and Federico in 1’53.7. The two riders set laps in 53 and 54. The race next May looks to be a good one.
Jules Cluzel: “The first day was not easy for me, we wanted to try an evolution of the ECU which I did not like. We lost some time, but that didn’t handicap us for the second day which went perfectly. We will arrive at the Aragon race with a bike that is ready. I’m really looking forward to it!”
Federico Caricasulo: “Despite my two crashes, I’m still satisfied with my two days because I didn’t lose confidence on the bike and I was able to get excellent 1’54 lap times. I think I can still gain a little bit on my first lap, but overall I am confident for the beginning of the season. I would like to thank the team who did an incredible job yesterday and today after my crashes. They fixed the bike perfectly and in record time!”
Christophe Guyot: “Once again we leave our test delighted. Our two riders were able to demonstrate their talent. Jules had a perfect second day, after his crash on Monday. Federico had two crashes and was able to keep his pace, which is incredible. We really have two great riders this season.”
