Remy focuses on race pace on day one in Barcelona
Remy Gardner returned to action on May 5th at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, finishing 12th on combined times.
The GYTR GRT Yamaha riders enjoyed good weather conditions in the first Free Practice session. Remy primarily focused on long-distance runs using the same tyres for the whole session, showing speed throughout the 45-minute practice, placing 11th (1’42.649).
Later, in the hotter Free Practice 2, #87 kept trying to gain maximum potential for the race, practicing once again with used tyres, using one set for the session. Remy was 15th (1’43.202), not improving on his morning lap times.
“It wasn’t the easiest day to be honest; we had a small issue in the early stages of FP2, and then when I went out again it was tough to manage the tyres. Anyway, we just focused on race pace today, and we’ll keep working on analysing the data we have as we know consumption will play a key role here.”
