Remy makes the most of tricky #AragonGP and finishes 16th
Tech3 KTM Factory Racing raced for the final time in Europe today before heading to Asia for an exciting set of four races in Japan, Thailand, Australia and Malaysia. Remy Gardner and Raul Fernandez made the best of a tricky Aragon Grand Prix, toned by a crazy start.
Respectively starting from P21 and P22, Raul Fernandez and Remy Gardner were eager to race in Aragon MotorLand in front of a Spanish crowd for the third time this year. Two early incidents forced them to slow down in order to avoid the riders on track, meaning that they both eventually lost time. Australian Remy Gardner did a good race as he found himself in P15 before losing his battle to Pol Espargaro.
Remy Gardner finishes sixteenth and Raul Fernandez twentieth. It is now time for Tech3 KTM Factory Racing to pack quickly and head to Japan, for the sixteenth round of the season.
“I am pretty happy with my race to be honest. I was lucky enough to brake in time and avoid Takaaki Nagakami who crashed in the middle of the track just in front of me, so I am happy that no one was hurt. I kept losing time in the final sector on the last straight which is unfortunate because I was strong on the first three. Pol Espargaro eventually passed me within the final laps so I missed the points, which is a shame. Positive weekend anyway and I look forward to heading to Japan.”
