Despite a wet morning Warm-Up, as soon as the riders headed to the grid for the Tissot Superpole Race the sun began to shine, offering a dry race for the WorldSBK field. The GYTR GRT Yamaha riders gave it their all, with Gardner managing to claim a strong sixth place by performing a great last lap move. Meanwhile, Aegerter couldn’t progress more than 11th after a good getaway, despite having decent speed.
The #87 and #77 had to start from 6th and 12th on the grid for the feature race and both got off the line well, gaining positions at the start. Gardner installed himself in a solid Top 5 place in the early stages, showing consistent race pace. The Aussie kept clocking fast laps in the 22-lap contest, eventually taking another sixth place, matching his best WorldSBK finish achieved in Assen in April. On the other side of the garage, Aegerter battled for more points, making progress in the latter stages to cross the line in 11th.
