The Tech3 Racing Team line up of Xavi Vierge and Remy Gardner leave the MotorLand Aragon circuit positively having made strides forward as preparation for the forthcoming season continues. 2016 Rookie of the year, Xavi Vierge strongly concluded the two-day test having undertaken crucial work with the Tech3 Racing Team where he sampled the updated frame and chassis for next year’s campaign. Whilst, new arrival Remy Gardner got to grips with the Mistral 610, and despite his track time being cut short on the second day due to a fall, the notable work that he completed on Wednesday sees him fully optimistic of improving further in the future. Both riders will return to the asphalt at Valencia on Monday where they will carry on their solid efforts in preparation for 2017.
“I am happy with what we achieved in Aragon and we are all pleased with the outcome. Today, I tested a lot of important factors, and now the Tech3 Racing Team know more or less which direction we need to keep heading towards next year, which was the goal of the outing. I rode a large number of laps and I managed to lower my best time, which I set in the Aragon GP, and that is very encouraging. Therefore, we can leave here feeling positive and we have two more days of testing in Valencia starting on Monday, where we will make the final checks on the different parts and settings so that we can go into the winter break having completed a good portion of the important preparation work for the 2017 season. Finally, I have to say thanks to the team for their efforts and I am excited for next week."
“Today didn’t quite go to plan but after the positive time that we had yesterday, I am looking forward to getting back on the Mistral 610 next week and continuing the progress with my new team. This morning we got off to a good start, but later, unfortunately, I had a crash and we couldn’t complete all of the repairs for the rest of the session. This was a shame because we lost valuable track time, however, my initial feeling is very good and the first day went better than expected. I don’t have long to wait until I get back on my Mistral 610 because we are testing at Valencia on Monday and I’m excited to see what we can accomplish there."
