Remy Gardner fought against the treacherous conditions to complete the eventful San Marino GP in 13th. When the shootout began, he bolted forward from the eighth row and by the mid point he was running in 8th. Gardner then fell on the 15th lap but he jumped back on his Mistral 610 and continued to push before falling again at turn 6 with three laps to go. Yet he remained resolute and finally completed the race in 13th.
Meanwhile, Xavi Vierge’s hopes of a top finish were dashed after he fell on the third lap, but he bravely remounted to complete the sprint in 15th. When the lights went out, Vierge bolted forward and moved up to 9th by the close of the first lap having started from 15th. However, the young Spaniard’s luck ran out as he crashed shortly after, but he re-joined the race and powered onwards before eventually finishing inside the points.
