Strong finish to Remy’s Misano weekend with eighth place finish in Race 2

 In News

Remy Gardner rounded off a challenging Sunday with an eighth-place finish in the final feature race of the Misano World Circuit, Marco Simoncelli, Italy.

Following a strong warm-up, with Remy fifth and team-mate Dominique Aegerter eighth, the GYTR GRT Yamaha pair were feeling confident ahead of the Superpole Race. Unfortunately, Remy encountered an eventful start, losing positions from his front row start. Looking to fight back through, he was unluckily involved in a racing accident with another rider, which saw him crash. While he was able to re-mount, he retired three laps later.

Remy had to start from 10th on the grid for Race 2, and had another difficult start. The Aussie showed consistent race speed to join the fight for a top five place; the #87 rider kept clocking fast laps to cross the line in eighth to score good points.

“Not the Sunday we were looking for after a strong weekend. Unfortunately in the sprint race I had to go wide at the start and I lost some positions. I felt then we could have a good race anyway, but I got involved in an incident and that was the end of our race. That finale compromised Race 2 as well as it’s tough to have a good run starting from behind, but I still managed to score some points. I’d like to thank Yamaha for the support, the team for the hard work and all the people who came here to support us!”
