Remy moved up from fourth on the grid to second on the first corner. With his teammate escaping at the front, the Australian gave up a position and rode in third. However, with six laps remaining, he upped the pace and hunted down Fernandez. On the final lap, he made his move, taking the win.
Remy continues to lead the Moto2 World Championship standings with 114 points. The next event for Red Bull KTM Ajo will be the Catalan GP next weekend from June 4th-6th.
87 REMY GARDNER
“It’s a very sad day. We won the contest, but I can’t be happy, since today the result is almost unimportant. I just want to send all my support and love to Jason’s family, friends and team. As for the race, to start with I didn’t have as much pace as Raul [Fernandez]. I decided to conserve my energy for the end. On the final laps I pushed hard and managed to hunt down my teammate and overtake him. I came out of the last corner well and we got the victory.”
Aki Ajo – Team Manager
“Today the race positions do not matter. This Sunday all of our thoughts are with Jason Dupasquier’s family, his team and all those who love him.
In the Moto2 contest, our riders achieved a great result. Once again, I want to thank all of our team, our sponsors and especially our riders.”
