April 19, 2024Ray Milton

Alvaro Bautista showed his mastery with racing in the rain today at Assen as he set the fastest lap time in FP2. FP2 was a battle at the top between Toprak Razgatlioglu and Bautista. The pair were separated by 0.277s. Bautista said, “It was a very complicated day because of the weather conditions and the heavy rain limited the grip on the track. It was also not easy to ride with the strong wind. But in the end, we have to adapt because these are situations that all riders have to face. However, I am satisfied because, despite these difficulties, the feeling with the bike was good. Hopefully, the weather will be more consistent tomorrow.”

GYTR GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team rider Remy Gardner put his experience to the test and finished 3rd fastest in the session.
