Remy sets to work at the Australian GP

 In News

Local star Remy Gardner and teammate Raul Fernandez experienced for the first time of their young careers the iconic Phillip Island track on a MotoGP bike today as the action of the Animoca Brands Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix kicked off with the first two free practices sessions.

After two very demanding media days ahead of his home Grand Prix, Australian Remy fulfilled his childhood dream of riding a MotoGP bike in Phillip Island, one experience he seemed to have enjoyed. Windy conditions in the morning were a challenge, but he managed to adapt pretty well to them. In the afternoon, he rode faster (-1.267 secs) as his fastest lap in 1’30.940 placed him twenty-second at the end of the first day. He will look to continue his progress tomorrow when the action resumes, at 9:55 local time (GMT+11).

Remy Gardner

“The Phillip Island circuit is a fun track to ride and I enjoyed it a lot today. FP1 was quite good considering the track conditions, so I was confident for the afternoon session. However, FP2 was windy and I struggled putting a fast lap together, even with the soft tyre. We are not in an ideal position, but there are a few changes we can work on tonight to be able to make a step tomorrow.”
