Solid seventh for Remy in Aragon Race 1
Remy Gardner enjoyed a consistent and determined ride in Race 1 at Motorland Aragon today to earn seventh place.
The day started with the Free Practice 3 session, and the Aussie rider was working to build pace over the race distance, showing solid progress to finish in a great third place (1’49.363).
Afterwards, Remy qualified ninth (1’49.031) in a hotly contested Tissot Superpole qualifier, just missing out on a second row start by less than two tenths of a second.
In Race 1, Remy dropped a couple of positions at the start, but he quickly picked his way through the field. Throughout the 18-lap contest, the #87 showed strong speed to gain more places, eventually crossing the line in a solid seventh.
“Honestly, we expected a little bit more in the Superpole following the strong Free Practice 3, but our grid position wasn’t too bad in the end. We faced a tricky start losing a couple of places, but we managed to fight back through the field and show consistent speed during the whole race. Now we’ve got more data to work on and we’ll try to improve further tomorrow, starting from the Tissot Superpole Race to achieve a better starting position for Race 2.”
