Strong Sunday for Remy in Barcelona

 In News

Remy Gardner enjoyed a strong run to finish seventh in the final feature race of the Barcelona weekend at the Circuit de Catalunya-Barcelona.

Despite a wet morning Warm-Up, as soon as the riders headed to the grid for the Tissot Superpole Race the sun began to shine, offering a dry race for the WorldSBK field. The GYTR GRT Yamaha riders gave it their all, with Remy managing to claim a ninth place just ahead of his teammate Aegerter, with both very close to the top in an ultra-competitive 10-lap contest,

Remy and Aegerter had to start from ninth and 11th on the grid for Race 2, with the Aussie gaining positions at the start, and he installed himself in a solid Top 5 place in the early stages, showing consistent race pace. He kept clocking fast laps, fighting for the top five until the very last lap crossing the line in sixth before being demoted to seventh due to exceeding track limits on the final lap.

Superpole Race: P9 / Race 2: P7

“The day was okay, I think we made the correct choices. The pace overall was good and in the sprint race everyone was close and I managed to finish ninth which allowed me to start again from the second row in Race 2. Then, I had a good getaway gaining places, ending up fighting for the top five; in the last lap I tried everything I could and crossed the line in 6th before being demoted to seventh due to track limits. I don’t think that’s right, even after checking, but it is what it is. We come back home scoring valuable points and being aware that we could enjoy a strong weekend in Assen. I’d like to thank the team for the great job done and the support, see you in Netherlands.”
