Darryn sets to work at the Circuit of The Americas
The fourth round of the 2022 MotoGP World Championship started in sunny, but windy and fresh conditions in the morning at the Circuit of the Americas in Texas. Thereby, the WithU Yamaha RNF MotoGP Team duo delivered some improvements from Free Practice one to Free Practice two at the famous and partly resurfaced American track.
It was a hard task for Darryn Binder, as the rookie tried the big machine for the first time in the morning. Yet, he managed to finish FP1 in 22nd position and lowered his lap time in Free Practice two by an impressive 1.519 seconds. On his way to an even faster lap time, he unfortunately went down towards the end of FP2, but is confident to step further ahead in the following days.
“It’s really nice to be back in America. The track has definitely improved from last year. It was very nice to get out on this circuit on a MotoGP bike, although it’s definitely a much more physical track to what we’ve been to so far. It’s different, there’s a lot more stop and go than the first three circuits on the calendar, so it’s a little change this weekend. So far, I definitely enjoy riding here and I’m feeling good apart from the small crash I had. Anyway, I’m ready to try again tomorrow.”
