Remy to start from second row in Qatar GP
Remy Gardner will start from fifth position on the Moto2 grid at the opening round of the World Championship at the Losail Circuit in Qatar.
Both riders of the ONEXOX TKKR SAG TEAM worked their way through the new Moto2 qualifying procedure today. The track conditions were very different from the previous sessions due to the wind. After completing great free practices, Remy gained a position in the Q2 while teammate Nagashima had to go through the Q1.
Remy, who has been showing his strong rhythm all weekend, has set his best lap at 1:58.819, riding on his own. The Australian will start from the fifth position of the Moto2 grid and he will try to fight for the first positions of the race.
#87 Remy Gardner | P5 | 1:58.819 | +0.234
“It was a good day, I wanted more but we have to be happy with P5. Our rhythm is good so I am very excited for tomorrow. Just missed out on the front row but I am still quite happy. I am going to get a good sleep tonight… I am already looking forward to tomorrow!”
