The Tech3 Racing Team pair rounded off the competitive three-day IRTA test in Andalucía with two solid displays having completed more vital preparation work for the 2017 campaign. Xavi Vierge dug deep as he made steps forward with this season’s Mistral 610 and the Spaniard concluded the shootout a second back from the leading time after running an impressive pace throughout the event. Whilst Remy Gardner pushed hard to continue to gel with his Moto2 bike before finishing seven-tenths back from his teammate, having cut 0.630 from his best lap on the first day. The positive work leaves both riders eager for the final pre-season test, which starts on the 17th of March at the Losail International Circuit in Qatar, with the season opener taking place one week afterwards.
