Kohta Nozane: P10 – 1’40.670 / 143 laps
GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Junior Team
To me, everything was new: the bike, the tyres, the circuit, it was my first time with all these things, and in the beginning, I was very anxious. But, during the two days, I could improve my pace little by little. That was very nice, and it was a really productive and useful test. At first, due to the coronavirus situation, I was unsure whether I could take part in the test or not, but in the end, luckily, I could participate and gain very important experience. The entire GRT Yamaha crew has welcomed me very warmly and the atmosphere in the garage is great. They are fully supporting me, so I really wanted to do my best to give them a nice result and show them my improvements. My teammate, Garrett, is very kind and we had some interesting conversations, which was another positive thing about these two days. For next season, I will focus on learning and improving as much as possible, and on trying to achieve our goals. I will try to do my best. Also, I will for sure practice my language skills to improve my English!
