First day of testing at Jerez

25 January 2023



A successful first day of testing for Lorenzo Baldassarri and the GMT94 Yamaha.

It is accompanied by the Andalusian sun that the new GMT94 recruit, Lorenzo Baldassarri, took his first steps with the Yamaha YZF-R1, marked with the number 34, on the Jerez de la Frontera track. A great first for the Italian rider but also for the Val de Marnaise team which makes this season the big jump in the Superbike category.

Heart and desire are the words that symbolise the first laps of the 2022 World Supersport Vice-Champion. The objective was to get his bearings without focusing on the lap time and to progress run after run while quickly getting used to riding on worn tyres. 

The five-time Moto2 winner has seduced over his team with his ambition on the track and his sympathy in the box.

Tomorrow will be another day of testing at Jerez in preparation for next week’s test at Portimao. Tests where we will find Lorenzo Baldassarri but also Valentin Debise, new GMT94 recruit in the Supersport category.

Less dominant than at Magny Cours, the French rider also had to contend with 950cc / 765cc and 800cc machines with faster acceleration and top speed on the very fast Aragon circuit. However, Ten Kate rider Stéfano Manzi showed that a 600cc Yamaha could take advantage of a very agile chassis […]
