Youthful talent winds up 19th in the standings following Valencia’s finale.
Australian Remy Gardner has completed his 2018 campaign in the Moto2 World Championship with a career-best result of fifth in the intermediate category at Valencia in Spain yesterday.
The Tech3 Racing rider charged through the rain-filled and challenging conditions, pushing on from P17 on the grid to ultimately wind up inside the top five.
It caps off a mixed season for the youthful talent, who endured two broken legs in a motocross accident, while also lodging the best performances of his career to end up 19th in the standings.
“I was a little disappointed to only qualify seventeenth, but knew if it continued to rain for the race we could get a good result,” Gardner explained. “It was a long race but I am super happy to finish fifth, by far my best race and my best race finish in Moto2. It was a fun race and good to end the year and my time with Tech3 this way.
“Big thanks to them, and big thanks to everyone who has been supporting me. Time to relax a little now and then come back even stronger next year where I will be with a new team.”
Gardner is set to transition SAG Racing Team next year, cementing his future in the Moto2 category for at least the 2019 and 2020 seasons.
