The team made the most out of the situation anyway, with much of their running completed during the first afternoon, when the track was mostly dry, focusing on improving race set-up, while they also returned to the circuit for some wet tyre running on the second morning.
Garrett Gerloff went on track only on the first day, and chose to work with the harder tyre compound in order to try to further improve his race pace. Despite being unable to test all the adjustments that were initially scheduled, the American and his crew still managed to make progress with the set-up of his Yamaha R1. Given the mixed conditions, the 25-year-old did not run any laps during the second day.
Kohta Nozane, instead, focused on getting reacquainted with the Spanish circuit, after a crash on the last day of the first test had taken much of his confidence away. On day two, the rain also gave him the chance to tick another box off his to-do list; his morning stint on the Pirelli wet tyres was his first with the Yamaha R1 WorldSBK in these conditions.
This weather-stricken test was GRT Yamaha’s last scheduled before the beginning of the 2021 WorldSBK season. The next time Gerloff and Nozane will exit the pits will be on Friday 21 May, for the first free practice at Aragón.
