Remy takes top ten finishes in Aragon Superpole Race and Race 2
Remy Gardner and teammate Dominique Aegerter scored more points on Sunday in Aragon, finishing in ninth and 12th in the final feature race of the weekend.
The GYTR GRT Yamaha pair returned to action this morning with Warm Up, building confidence over race distance. Gardner concluded the session in 8th (1’50.664), with his teammate Aegerter 17th, clocking a lap time of 1’51.728.
The duo started from ninth and 16th on the grid for the Tissot Superpole Race. Remy enjoyed a decent getaway, but got pushed wide in the opening lap, being forced to recover from behind. The Australian rider showed strong pace, finishing 10th but narrowly missing out on ninth.
That meant the #87 had to start from 11th on the grid for the final feature race of the weekend. Remy gave it his all, having good pace and gaining ninth and more points.
Superpole Race: P10 / Race 2: P9
“It was a positive weekend, but also a bit frustrating. We felt we had the pace to fight for the Top 5 in the long race, but unfortunately our starting position didn’t help at all. In the Tissot Superpole Race I started very well, but then I got hit by another rider and I had to take the escape road. So, I had to fight back and I got close to the Top 9, just missing out on the last lap. In the final feature race it wasn’t easy to fight in the middle of the group, but I’m still taking away valuable data and points. We’re confident that we’ll be back quicker in just few days in Portimão and we’re aware we have to work on qualifying to build strong races.”
