Remy qualifies fourteenth at the Sachsenring
Tech3 Moto2 rider Remy Gardner continued his positive streak at the Sachsenring today by qualifying 14th for the round 9 battle at the tight and twisting track.
The young Australian resolutely fought against the challenging track conditions and sped over the finish line on his last lap to finish under a second back from the second row.
Tomorrow he aims to muscle his way into a strong point scoring position in the highly competitive intermediate class sprint.
Position: 14th – Time: 1’33.724 – Laps: 21
“It was a strange day with regards to the weather but my qualifying result is decent so I think that we can be confident for the race tomorrow. At the beginning of the day, FP3 went well and I was quick in the dry, which was certainly positive. However, then qualifying started and the asphalt was drying, but it looked like a lot of rain was coming so everyone rushed out onto the track. Then the weather turned but in the end, every rider went faster even in the worse conditions, plus there was so much grip in the wet and it was unbelievable. I made it over the line with a second to spare, which was good because in the following lap I set my quickest time. Throughout the practice, I got more and more confident but I definitely think that I could have cut around half a second or more from my personal best. It’s not the greatest grid position but I am content and I think we can do a good job in the dry tomorrow so let’s see what happens. Also, I must say congratulations to Hector.”
