Gerloff Second In Navarra WSBK Test

Garrett Gerloff ended two days of testing at Navarra in Spain with the second quickest time.

GRT Yamaha WorldSBK’s Garrett Gerloff came within .048 of a second of recording the fastest lap time on day two of the two-day World Superbike test at the Navarra circuit in Spain.

Gerloff, who led day one, finished just behind Pata Yamaha’s Toprak Razgatlioglu with the Turk lapping at a best of 1:36.877 to Gerloff’s 1:36.925. Razgatlioglu did 190 laps over the two-day test with Gerloff completing 140 laps.

The Navarra circuit will play host to the World Superbike Championship for the first time, August 20-22.

“It was a great two days here in Navarra,” Gerloff said in a team release. “The track was fun with a different layout from normal European circuits. There were a lot of first-gear corners and it’s really bumpy – reminded me of an American track. We learned a lot and we’re ready for Donington.”

World Champion Jonathan Rea ended the two days with the third fastest time with Pata Yamaha’s Andrea Locatelli ending up fourth.
