Positive end to pre-season testing for Remy
After three days of intense work at the Losail International Circuit, the Red Bull KTM Ajo team concluded their preparations for the 2021 Moto2 World Championship season. Remy Gardner showed he is one of the most consistent and strong riders on the grid, setting the third best time both on Sunday and overall.
As happened on previous days, the Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 duo did not take to the track in the morning and saved themselves for the midday session. Remy was ninth in that run out with a time of 2:00.149 and put in 9 more laps of the Qatari track. The Australian completed a programme designed to find the best setup for his bike for the first race of the year.
In the afternoon, Remy set the third best time on Sunday, with a personal best for the test: a 1:58.703, just 48 thousandths off the fastest rider overall. The Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 talent dedicated his 19 laps to confirming the findings made in the morning and looking for new improvements.
Throughout these three days of work in Qatar, Remy and teammate Raul Fernandez rode a total of 108 and 105 laps, respectively. The Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 duo will be back in action at the same track next weekend, for the first race of 2021 – from March 26th to 28th.

“I am very satisfied with the work we did over these three days. Despite the conditions not being so good, in general, we set a strong pace. We are clear about things for next weekend, and that is the important thing. I want to thank the team for everything. I can’t wait for the first race of the year.”
