Darryn sets to work and makes steps forward at Misano


Darryn Binder once again quickly started to learn the circuit on his Yamaha YZR-M1 as this weekend’s San Marino GP got underway. He ended up in 24th position in both sessions, but made some decent progress. The South African MotoGP rookie improved by impressive 1.228 seconds from the first to the second session and therewith significantly reduced his gap to the front.

Free Practice three, which starts on Saturday at 09.55 local time, will offer another very important opportunity for both WithU Yamaha RNF MotoGP Team riders to get closer to the top in order to be prepared for the all-important Qualifying, which starts just after FP4 at 14:10 local time.


“The first day here in Misano is done and dusted. It’s a really narrow track with quite tight corners. I found it a little bit difficult to learn today, but in FP2 I made a little step forward. I started to find a bit of a rhythm towards the end and slowly, but surely starting to understand how to get around this track. I’m looking to make some progress tomorrow and going to sleep on it tonight.”
