Remy Gardner says he enjoyed his first race Australian Grand Prix in the MotoGP™ class after claiming a points finish at the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit.

The local hero started his home race from the seventh row of the grid in 19th before climbing up to tenth by lap 10 on his Tech3 KTM machine. Gardner said he was pleased with the opening stages of his race before his tyres started falling away.


“I took a rather good start to the race and stayed close to the front group for 13-14 laps more or less as I felt strong on the bike,” the 24-year-old said after the race.

“At one point, we were in P10. Then the tyres started dropping and we lost a couple of positions but I had a lot of fun riding here today.”
