After finding good feelings in the morning, the #77 and the #87 were ready for a good Tissot Superpole Race. Both got off the line well, but a technical problem occurred for Aegerter which caused the race to stop after two laps. The Swiss rider was able to rejoin at the restart, managing to lead the race in the early stages. ‘Domi’ then dropped to second, managing to defend his place with stunning race pace to achieve his maiden WorldSBK podium. In the meantime, Gardner showed good speed as well, eventually crossing the line in sixth after the 10-lap contest.
Following on from this, the #77 and the #87 enjoyed a fantastic final race of the 2023 season. Aegerter was in victory contention, running just behind the likes of Bautista (Ducati) and Razgatlıoğlu (Pata Yamaha Prometeon WorldSBK). The Swiss rider showed great race pace again and was able to keep his third place after the 20-lap contest, just 0.3s off the winner. Meanwhile, Gardner settled himself into a solid fourth, managing to catch his teammate in the latter stages of the race despite not being in optimal physical shape following his Saturday crash. In the end, the Aussie rider kept his position until the chequered flag, matching his best WorldSBK result so far.
The GYTR GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team has been crowned Best Independent Team of the 2023 WorldSBK season; moreover, Dominique Aegerter and Remy Gardner’s result brought the team into fourth place in the team standings.
