Resolute Gardner completes German GP in the points – Strong debut ends in an unfortunate way for Garzo

Written by

Remy Gardner closed the first half of his rookie Moto2 season with a point scoring finish today at the challenging Sachsenring track where he forcefully powered to 12th. The young Australian leapt forward from the fifth row of the grid and he maintained his consistency throughout the 29 sprint as he pursued a strong result. Gardner set his fastest time of the race on the penultimate lap and he battled in a fierce fight with Syahrin which went right down to the chequered flag before he closed the weekend positively and in 12th.

Meanwhile, Hector Garzo’s debut ended in an unfortunate way after he fell at the 12th turn on the third lap. Garzo, who is standing in for the injured Xavi Vierge, began from 5th on the grid and quickly set off at speed. However, the impressive young Spaniard’s luck turned shortly after the start of the race, but the Tech3 Racing Team would like to thank him for his strong efforts during the German Grand Prix.
