DNF for Remy in Jerez Race 1
Remy Gardner missed out on points in Race 1 at Jerez after a remarkable Tissot Superpole where he qualified fifth on the grid.
After finding good feeling in the morning, the #87 rider approached the Tissot Superpole qualifier with great confidence. At the end of the 15-minute session, Remy put in strong flying laps to qualify in a very decent fifth (1’38.961).
Following on from this, the GYTR GRT Yamaha duo were eager for Race 1 as they felt confident of scoring good results. Both got off the line quite well, but unfortunately their hopes lasted just a few laps. Remy had a big crash while attempting to overtake another rider. The Aussie suffered a deep cut to his right elbow and a left wrist contusion.
Superpole: P5 / Race 1: DNF
“It’s unfortunate how Race 1 ended, I thought I could fight for the podium, and to finish on the ground and injured is not the best way to close the day. I’m very sorry to the team and Yamaha, I hope I’ll feel better tomorrow. We still take some positives with the Tissot Superpole; P5 on the grid was good even though I left some time on the table as I couldn’t perform a perfect lap.”
