Xavi Vierge made a highly positive start to proceedings on day one of the Tech3 Racing Team’s home Grand Prix in Le Mans. The young Spaniard immediately got up to speed in the dry morning practice, which he concluded in 6th and just 0.192 back from 3rd. In the afternoon, the wet weather arrived but Vierge powered through and finished FP2 in 6th once again, which leaves him confident for any future rain-affected sessions. Meanwhile, Remy Gardner took some encouraging steps forward today in France as he bounces back from his ankle injury. The young Australian completed the afternoon practice in 26th after producing a confidence boosting performance in the wet and tomorrow he intends to make a further step up aboard the Mistral 610.


Xavi Vierge

Position: 6th - Time: 1'47.927 - Laps: 19


Vierge - 2017“Overall, I am happy with how the first day went in Le Mans. This morning, I felt good on the bike in the dry conditions and I finished in 6th position. We expect the weather to be clear when we next get back on the track and we have two or three things to try, so it was a good start today, but for sure tomorrow will be better. Then in the afternoon, I was 6th again in the wet and confident on the bike in the rain so, to be honest, my feeling was amazing. It was a bit of a shame that I ran into some traffic at the end, which prevented me from improving my time a bit more, yet, I am happy with how the first day went."


Remy Gardner

Position: 26th - Time: 1'50.346 - Laps: 19


Gardner - 2017“In general, I am feeling better on the bike and I am definitely making progress after my injury. FP2 was really wet, but it started to dry towards the end, yet I gained a lot of confidence back in terms of riding in the rain so I am happy about this. I think that I could have done a better job in that practice, but some other riders held me up on my final lap, which is a shame. However, the feeling is definitely coming back and I am more comfortable on my bike so we will see how it goes tomorrow."
