 In News

Action got underway at the iconic Phillip Island circuit with the final pre-season test taking place ahead of the weekend’s opening round of the championship.

GYTR GRT Yamaha riders, Remy Gardner and Dominique Aegerter mainly focused on race distance throughout the eight hours of track activity, with the goal of getting the most out of their Yamaha R1 machines.

It was a busy day for Remy, who completed more laps than anyone else, 103 in total. The local hero tried to save the best for last after showing strong pace and despite not being able to maximize his strongest sectors, he ended the test ninth with a time of 1’29.399.

Remy will now enjoy two days off before diving into the season’s opening round between 23rd-25th February.

“It was a strange day, but in the end we managed to find our way so I’m happy overall. We worked really hard and even though we had a challenging start, we understood what we needed and we found a positive path to follow. There’s still something to work on, but I feel we are ready for the race weekend and I’m looking forward for the beginning of the season.”
