VRD Igol Pierret Experiences had to tackle wintry weather in the private test on the Bugatti circuit, but nevertheless managed to adapt the 2020 version of their YZF-R1.
Although this week’s private test at Le Mans served primarily as a trial run for the wet tyres, VRD Igol Pierret Experiences wrapped up the two-day test on a high note. “We used the sessions to fine-tune the electronics of our 2020-version R1,” says Yannick Lucot, the team manager of the French Yamaha-supported team. “We have another three-day test scheduled in Barcelona from 23 to 25 March to confirm our setup in a range of track conditions. The goal is to get to the 24 Heures Motos pre-race test with a solid foundation so that we’ll be fully prepared in the week of the race.”
