The day started with Warm-Up, where the GYTR GRT Yamaha duo kept working on race pace: the Swiss concluded the session in 14th (1’37.442), with his Aussie teammate 16th (1’37.498).
With more confidence, Aegerter and Gardner displayed good form in the Tissot Superpole Race. Indeed, the #77 managed to gain six places to finish sixth following a great last lap manoeuvre, while the #87 was fighting for a Top 9 spot but finished 11th at the chequered flag.
That meant the pair would start from sixth and 16th in the final feature race of the weekend. Aegerter had a decent getaway, managing to stay with the front group, but unfortunately his hopes only lasted three laps after he got hit by another rider and went down, causing a red flag stoppage. The Swiss rider was then taken to the medical centre for further checks, which prevented him from restarting. He received the ‘all clear’, although he will need to rest after the heavy hit. Meanwhile, Gardner enjoyed a good start before the stoppage, gaining places; he then restarted from 12th, and the Aussie showed consistent pace to stay inside the Top 10 - managing to fight back to eighth thanks to two great last lap moves.
