GYTR GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team Head to Argentina for First Overseas Leg of 2022

Following a promising Portoguese round, the GYTR GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team is eager to return to action for the tenth round of the 2022 FIM Superbike World Championship at Circuit San Juan Villicum, Argentina.

Last time out in Portimao, Garrett Gerloff showed good speed and race craft, and although the results didn’t tell the full story, the American’s ride from 17th to ninth in Sunday’s feature-length contest showed he was more than capable of fighting further up the field.

On the other side of the box, Kohta Nozane is looking to bounce back from a difficult outing in the Algarve at one of his favourite circuits, having enjoyed a solid round in his rookie campaign at San Juan last year.

Race 1 will get underway at 15:00 local time on Saturday (GMT -3) after the Friday practice sessions and Superpole qualifier, with Race 2 starting exactly 24 hours later on Sunday, following the SPRC at 12:00.

Garrett Gerloff
“In Portimao, we enjoyed a decent weekend overall, but our potential was higher in my opinion. The pace was good, but unfortunately we couldn’t get the results I believe we deserved. That’s why I’m even more eager to convert our pace into a strong finish; we know we’re capable of a good weekend here in Argentina.”

Kohta Nozane
“I cannot wait to be in Argentina. We made progress in the last rounds but unfortunately they didn’t translate into good results. We have potential and I want a strong weekend for myself and the team. Villicum is one of the tracks I enjoy the most and we’ll go full throttle from the very first session.”
