Remy Gardner initiated the 2018 season with a great race after producing a mature ride to 12that the Losail International Circuit today. The talented Australian launched forward from the fourth row on the grid and made up three places by the end of the first lap. Following a late brake on lap two he fell back, but was biting hard inside a very competitive group to eventually finish the 20 lap sprint well inside the points scoring ranges.

Tech3 Racing team rider Remy Gardner displayed a strong performance on the second day of action in Qatar and will kick off the first competition of the year from the fourth row of the Moto2 grid. Meanwhile, Bo Bendsneyder kept improving his rhythm aboard the Mistral 610 during FP3 around midday and secured 20th position during the qualifying this afternoon. The intermediate class rookie concluded the all-important session just 0.310 seconds behind his team mate.

The Moto2 class will be back on track tomorrow at 14:10 local time for the warm up session, before they inaugurate the 2018 season with the first of 19 races at 17:20.

“That was a pretty decent start to the year. To be honest, I would have liked to get a bit more, but it was a solid qualifying. On my fast lap, I made a mistake in turn six, I probably lost a tenth or a tenth of a half. I was pushing and in the end, I can’t complain. We’ve done one of our best timed sessions in the dry yet. I think we’re in a pretty confident spot for tomorrow and don’t have to catch up a lot to be close to the top.”


Bo Bendsneyder

Position: 20th - Time: 2’01.562 - Laps: 18


Bo Bendsneyder“Overall, today was quite good, we did some steps forward. In qualifying we were really close to the top 10, although I was struggling a bit and made some mistakes, therefore I wasn’t able to put the perfect lap together. For tomorrow, I’m really excited as it will be my first race in Moto2. I’m looking forward to it!”

Remy Gardner “It went quite positive here today, I feel good with the bike and I’m happy to be back to racing, finally. It’s our second year here, so we all have a bit more experience. It looks like we are off to a good start, so I hopefully we can keep up the great work and with it, keep the ball rolling.”

Bo Bendsneyder“Overall, it was a quite good first day for me on this track with the Moto2 machine. We still need to find something extra in order to have more grip and a more stable bike, but I think my fantastic crew will figure it, which will be good for tomorrow. So, let’s try it on Saturday and hopefully we can improve the lap time a little bit.”
