Last time out in Magny-Cours, Garrett Gerloff enjoyed a strong weekend with a fine qualifying performance, going on to score fifth in both the Tissot Superpole qualifying and Race 1.
The American rider heads into the weekend with fond memories of the Barcelona circuit, having scored a maiden podium here in in his rookie WorldSBK season.
On the other side of the garage, Kohta Nozane improved his pace throughout the French round. The Japanese rider enjoyed one of the best performances of his rookie campaign at Montmeló last year, and as one of his favourite tracks, he’s aiming for a strong outing again this weekend.
After the Friday practice sessions and Superpole qualifier, Race 1 will get underway at 14:00 local time (CET) on Saturday, with Race 2 starting exactly 24 hours later on Sunday, following the SPRC at 11:00.
