The day started with the Warm Up session, where the GYTR GRT Yamaha duo showed good pace to end the session in 7th and 9th, respectively, leaving them ready for the remaining two races.
Indeed, in the Tissot Superpole Race, Aegerter and Gardner enjoyed a good start, joining the battle for the podium. After producing the fastest lap of the race, the Swiss rider was in a solid fifth position, followed by local hero Gardner who was getting faster with each lap. Unfortunately, in an attempt to overtake, Gardner made contact with his teammate, and both crashed out of podium contention.
With one more race to go, both riders were eager for redemption. Starting from 10th and 11th on the grid, Aegerter and Gardner had a solid start and retained their positions but began to struggle in the heated mid-pack battle.
However, the GYTR GRT Yamaha pair fought hard with those around them right to the line. Aegerter came on strong in the latter stages of the race, showing blistering pace to cross the line in 7th after a stunning last-lap move on Jonathan Rea. At the same time, Gardner recovered to 10th despite a long lap penalty served at the beginning of the race due to the Superpole Race incident.
