Remy closes Czech weekend with superb sixth place finish
Remy Gardner put in two great performances on Sunday in Most, managing to finish 6th in both the Superpole Race and Race 2.
Despite a wet morning Warm-Up, as soon as the riders headed to the grid for the Tissot Superpole Race the sun began to shine, offering a dry race for the WorldSBK field. The GYTR GRT Yamaha riders gave it their all, with Remy managing to claim a strong sixth place by performing a great last lap move.
The #87 had to start from 6th on the grid for the feature race and both got off the line well. Remy installed himself in a solid Top 5 place in the early stages, showing consistent race pace. The Aussie kept clocking fast laps in the 22-lap contest, eventually taking another sixth place, matching his best WorldSBK finish achieved in Assen in April.
Superpole Race: P6 / Race 2: P6
“Overall it’s been a very positive weekend. Today I managed to stay up the front in the Superpole Race and have consistent speed, and then in Race 2 I could see the pack leaders and I felt good with a strong rhythm. In the last part of the race the tyres started to drop, and I felt I was on the limit, we used them up a bit too much and the other guys preserved theirs better. Anyway, this weekend is a confidence boost for us and hopefully we can be closer to the Top 5 in the next races.”
