In the opening session, American rider Gerloff enjoyed a decent run, firing in a 1’42.683, with his Japanese teammate recording a 1’43.473.
Later in the afternoon, both Gerloff and Nozane’s main focus was on long runs to extract maximum potential for the races, meaning they did not improve their times from this morning. The #31 was 13th fastest (1’42.904), despite being just 0.9s off the top, while the #3 was 18th (1’43.599), with a small crash at Turn 10 hampering his session.
Therefore, Gerloff ended the day 11th fastest on combined times, with Nozane 17th. The two GYTR GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team riders will be back tomorrow, firstly with FP3 at 09:00 local time (GMT+2), then with the Tissot Superpole at 11:10 and Race 1 at 14:00.
