Remy Gardner in the points on home soil
Tech3 Racing Team rider Remy Gardner sealed a point scoring finish on home turf after producing a relentless charge in the 25-lap sprint.
The local hero began the race from the sixth row of the grid and quickly got up to speed. He plugged away before riding a ferocious last lap to then meet the chequered flag in 15th. The positive result leaves Gardner confident ahead of the final flyaway event in Malaysia next week.
“It was tough but I am happy to have finished in the points at my home GP. I had a positive start yet, on the second lap, Pons ran into me which caused me to run wide, and I lost about five positions. It was hard to regain the ground and I was in a really good place before this happened, plus, I believe that I could have stayed with the group in front. However, I lost them and it was tricky to keep consistent but anyway, it’s a
shame that I couldn’t get a better result at my home race and we will work hard to come back stronger.”
