Remy battles to eighth place finish in Race 2 at Magny Cours
Remy Gardner gained eight places in Race 2 at Magny-Cours to finish 8th today, a strong end to a challenging round.
The day started with Warm-Up, where the GYTR GRT Yamaha duo kept working on race pace with Remy in 16th (1’37.498).
With more confidence, Remy displayed good form in the Tissot Superpole Race, fighting for a Top 9 spot but finishing 11th at the chequered flag.
In Race 2 Remy enjoyed a good start before the stoppage, gaining places; he then restarted from 12th, and the Aussie showed consistent pace to stay inside the Top 10 – managing to fight back to eighth thanks to two great last lap moves.
“It was a tough weekend, but we kept progressing and I can go home knowing I made a good comeback in the final feature race. Unfortunately, yesterday I made a mistake in the qualifying and I had to start from far back, but we managed to build pace and confidence from Saturday. I think we had the speed but starting from 16th didn’t help at all. Anyway, we scored valuable points and gained positions and experience for the future, that will be helpful for the remaining rounds. I’d like to thank the team for their work all weekend, and Yamaha for their support.”
