Remy Gardner has continued his brilliant performances this season with a third-consecutive win in the Moto2™ class.
The Red Bull KTM Ajo became the first Australian in history to achieve such a feat at the German GP.
It was a race of two in the early stages of the race, with Gardner and teammate Raul Fernandez leading into the first corner.
The pair continued to lead the way, increasing their lead by over a second. With 24 laps to go, Fernandez went off, all but guaranteeing Gardner’s victory.
Gardner crossed the line over six seconds ahead of Aron Canet extending his lead in the standings. He is now 36 points ahead of teammate Fernandez, with 164 points.
Gardner reflected: “Before the race, my brother sent me a message telling me to become the first Australian to win three consecutive races. It was a great contest.”
“Honestly, I was prepared for a battle, as Raul [Fernandez] had been very strong the entire weekend. Especially in the warm-up, he had a better pace than me.”
“However, on the first three laps, I saw that I was quicker, and I calmly began to push. I needed to keep focused, and it was a very long round.”
“I’m happy with the 25 points. It was an important day for us. Now we have to remain calm and keep going.”
Round 9 of the Moto2™ World Championship moves to the Netherlands for the Dutch Grand Prix next weekend.
