The GYTR GRT Yamaha pair returned to action this morning with Warm Up, building confidence over race distance. Gardner concluded the session in 8th (1’50.664), with his teammate Aegerter 17th, clocking a lap time of 1’51.728.
The duo started from ninth and 16th on the grid for the Tissot Superpole Race. Gardner enjoyed a decent getaway, but got pushed wide in the opening lap, being forced to recover from behind. The Australian rider showed strong pace, finishing 10th but narrowly missing out on ninth. Aegerter had consistent speed in the 10-lap contest managing to stay close to the front group to cross the line in 14th.
That meant the #87 and the #77 had to start from 11th and 16th on the grid for the final feature race of the weekend. The GYTR GRT Yamaha pair gave it all, with Gardner having good pace and gaining ninth and more points. Aegerter fought back to 12th at the end of the contest, adding more points to his tally too.
