Remy progresses to P12 on day one at Aragon
Remy Gardner returned to action on 22nd September at Motorland Aragon, showing consistent speed to finish 12th on combined times.
The GYTR GRT Yamaha riders were looking to build confidence in the morning’s Free Practice 1, clocking laps for the first time on the Spanish circuit on their Yamaha R1 machines. It was a learning curve for both riders, and Remy crossed the line in 18th (1’52.605).
Later, in the afternoon Free Practice 2, Remy managed to go faster and improve his feelings. The #87 consistently made progress in the 45-minute session to cross the line in 12th (1’51.155), which meant being 1.450s faster compared to the morning.

“Not the easiest day, but we managed to make a good improvement from Free Practice 1 to Free Practice 2. I felt much better and we showed strong progress. Hopefully we can find one more step tomorrow, especially in stopping the bike a bit better and turning under acceleration, I’m confident I can build a solid Saturday.”
