Solid P9 for Remy in Misano Race 1
Remy Gardner finished 9th scoring good points in the first feature race in Misano today.
The GYTR GRT Yamaha pair kept working to build pace in the opening Free Practice 3, with the #87 placing in 4th (1’34.069) following a great session.
In the Tissot Superpole, Remy was confident to make a good qualifying session. With 1’45 to go, the Superpole was stopped, while the GYTR GRT Yamaha rookies where improving their lap times. The Australian had to start then from 9th (1’33.997) on the grid.
Afterwards, in Race 1, Remy enjoyed a decent getaway keeping his position. Over the course of the 21-lap dash, he produced a strong pace in the latter stages of the race, scoring good points to cross the line in 9th.
“The red flag in the Tissot Superpole qualifier was a shame, we could’ve gained a better position on the grid. In the race we had a decent getaway and then I tried to build my race pace. The speed in the latter stages was really good, and that’s promising for tomorrow. We’ll try to be more aggressive in the remaining two races and we’ll check the data to try and improve our performance tomorrow.”
