Remy all set to fight from 11th spot on Mugello grid
Remy Gardner produced a solid performance in the Italian GP qualifying shootout to seize a notable fourth row start for the 21-lap sprint.
The young Australian got on the pace immediately but an unfortunate crash late on in the session halted any further progress. Nevertheless, tomorrow he will seek to seize his first championship points of the year aboard the Mistral 610.
“I am happy with the overall result even though the qualifying ended in a disappointing way due to the crash. I feel like I have found myself on the bike this weekend and my ankle is healing up a lot better which is really positive. I fell at the end of the session because I was pushing too hard and I knew that I could achieve a better time so I was just trying. My bike may not be in such a great shape, but I’m ok which is good news for tomorrow. It’s a shame that I couldn’t improve because I really thought that I could crack the top ten, but anyway, the main event is to come and I’m sure that we can bring the Mistral home in a decent position.”
