Tech3 Racing team rider Remy Gardner performed superbly in today’s Qualifying at the Silverstone circuit to secure the first ever front row start of his career in second. Thereby, the young Australian missed out on the pole position by just a whisker during the last seconds of the session, which took place in mixed conditions
Meanwhile, Bo Bendsneyder showed his talent as well. The Dutch intermediate class rookie improved during the weekend, although changing weather delivered some tricky track time. Bendsneyder eventually ended up in 18th position, which equals his best ever starting spot in the highly-competitive Moto2 category.
Position: 2nd- Time: 2’08.347 - Laps: 14
“It’s just incredible! I didn’t even know I was in the front row until half the lap was done, I looked at a screen and saw second. It’s a fantastic feeling, I definitely didn’t expect to be here some months ago with two broken legs. I made a great comeback and honestly, I’m pretty lost for words at the moment.”
Position: 18th- Time: 2’09.323 - Laps: 13
“It was a good Qualifying, different than normal because we needed to find out if it was dry or wet. Finally, it was not completely dry but dry enough to set a good lap time. Just on the last lap, I was behind a slower rider and I lost a little time. In the end, P18 for a not so easy weekend is a good result. We worked hard for this. The lap was good and also my fastest at this circuit with the Moto2 machine. Now we have to wait and see how the weather will be tomorrow, but for sure, we will push hard.”
