The Tech3 Racing Team riders eagerly look towards the approaching season after making some solid steps forward in the two-day test in Spain. Xavi Vierge sampled the 2017 specification Mistral 610, and he made constant progress with it as he also focused on the new KYB rear suspension. The Spaniard finished with a time that was impressively just 0.514 back from the leading rider and almost half a second quicker than his best from yesterday. Whilst Remy Gardner continued to gel with his bike as he worked relentlessly with the Tech3 crew, despite being limited by grip issues. Nevertheless, he remained resolute and completed 88 laps today, which was more than any other rider, and his fastest time from yesterday places him under a second back from his teammate. Both riders will return to the track on the 8th of March for the Official IRTA test at Jerez where they fully intend to carry on advancing.
