Tech3 Racing Team rider Xavi Vierge delivered another highly impressive performance to clinch 5th in the mixed conditions at the Australian Grand Prix. The Spaniard leapt forward from 12th on the grid and quickly set into a formidable pace as he glided through the field. He maintained his consistency and diced in the fiercely competitive pack before powering across the finish line, as the rain increased, in 5th to continue his strong form.
Meanwhile, Remy Gardner sealed a point scoring finish on home turf after producing a relentless charge in the 25-lap sprint. The local hero began the race from the sixth row of the grid and quickly got up to speed. He plugged away before riding a ferocious last lap to then meet the chequered flag in 15th. The positive result leaves Gardner confident ahead of the final flyaway event in Malaysia next week.
