Strong start to Assen weekend for Remy
Remy Gardner returned to action on April 21st at the iconic TT Circuit Assen, finishing 5th on combined times.
Despite low track temperatures and strong winds, the GYTR GRT Yamaha riders enjoyed dry runs throughout their Friday in the Netherlands. In the first Free Practice session, Remy and teammate Aegerter showed strong pace on their Yamaha R1 machines, placing themselves in 3rd (1’35.176) and 10th (1’35.558) respectively.
In the afternoon’s Free Practice 2, both riders were able to improve their performance. Although primarily focusing on long-distance runs, where both appeared to have solid race pace, both managed to put in quick laps and place their names inside the Top 5. The Swiss rider finished 4th with a solid 1’34.600, while the Australian was just behind with a 1’34.713.
“That was a good Friday, we managed to have pace with used tyres. We’re conscious that there are still some areas to work on, and we’ll analyse everything with our guys to be ready for the Superpole and the race. The tyre choice will be tough, but let’s see what tomorrow brings and what happens.”
