Remy takes P10 in Misano Race 2 after DNF in Superpole Race
Remy Gardner finished 10th in the final feature race of the Misano weekend, after an unlucky Superpole Race which was dramatically disrupted after just two corners.
The day started with the Warm Up session, where the GYTR GRT Yamaha duo kept working on race pace and which the Aussie concluded in 14th place (1’34.590).
Unfortunately, the team’s Tissot Superpole Race hopes only lasted two corners. Aegerter got hit by another rider and went down, collecting Remy in a dramatic incident that neither Yamaha rider could avoid. Sadly Remy couldn’t get back on track and required a trip to the medical centre.
The pair started from 11th and 12th on the grid for Sunday’s feature race, and the GYTR GRT Yamaha riders tried their best to make their way through the field. It was a challenging one for Remy, who was cleared fit to race but had discomfort in his ankle and his back. Despite this, he battled through, recovering to a solid P10.
“What happened in the Tissot Superpole Race was a pity, we had a good start and I felt good with the SCQ tyre and reckoned we could have done a good race to gain a better position on the grid. Unfortunately, we didn’t get past turn two and personally I didn’t feel 100% physically after the crash. Anyway, we tried our best and we saved some points, let’s focus on Donington ahead.”
