Misfortune for Remy on Saturday at Phillip Island

 In News

Remy Gardner’s hopes in Saturday’s Race 1 at Phillip Island only lasted two laps as he was involved in an incident with another rider, resulting in him crashing out.

He returned to action in the morning with the Free Practice 3, and enjoyed a good feeling with the R1 to finish inside the top five at the end of the session.

Then, the Australian rider enjoyed a decent Tissot Superpole qualifier, Remy enjoying a decent session too to place himself seventh on a 1’28.604, just few thousandths of a second from the top five.

As the race begun, Remy encountered a difficult getaway, dropping position at the start but started then to make his way through the field, but unfortunately was hit by another rider and crashed out after just two laps.

Remy Gardner – Superpole: P7 / Race 1: DNF

“Not the best day for sure, that wasn’t the ideal start of the year. The qualifying was decent, even though not great, but to start from seventh wasn’t too bad. In the start unfortunately I had to close the gas to avoid contact and dropped a couple of position. I felt I could have good speed and I was trying to put myself into a good position, but in turn 10 Bassani hit me and forced me to crash. Anyway, we have two more races to express our potential, let’s stay positive to enjoy a good Sunday.”
