Gardner ends his time in MotoGP™ on a high at Valencia

Monday, 7 November 2022

The Aussie closed his KTM chapter in the points.

Remy Gardner has finished his 2022 MotoGP™ season on a high after managing a 13th-place finish at the Valencia GP.

After it was announced that Gardner will be moving to World Superbikes for 2023, the Aussie was determined to have a good race for his final dance with KTM.


Despite only qualifying in nineteenth place, he was already fifteenth after four laps and pushed all the way to a P13 finish by the end of the race.

The result marks his second-best finish overall in the premier class, only bettered by his ride to eleventh at Catalunya earlier in the season.

“It was a good race!” Remy said after the race.

“The start was not ideal because I went outside in turn 1 and was held up in turn 2, but after that, I felt like I was on a mission and made my way to the top 15.

“At lap 7, I was feeling pretty good and was trying to get back at Alex Marquez, but then he crashed just in front of me.”

“I went a bit wide and gave everything I had to pick the bike up because I almost crashed.

“The end was quite fun, Raul Fernandez and I had a few battles together.

“We finished in the points in the end which is quite good. On to the next chapter.”

Gardner will be joining GRT Yamaha for the 2023 WorldSBK season and will be hoping to return to fighting amongst the top positions.

Hopefully, we can see Remy return to the winner’s circle and a possible MotoGP™ comeback one day.
