Aussie teen Remy Gardner was back on World Championship duty with Tasca Scuderia Racing at the Dutch Moto2 GP where he raced hard to finish 20th after rain meant a red flag during the 24 lap race at Assen, the 'Cathedral of Speed'.
Gardner, who scored his first ever Moto2 World Championship point on his debut with the squad at the Catalan GP, was making progress with set-up during Free Practice before a qualifying crash saw him start from 26th on the grid.
With the threat of rain ahead of the race and despite a slight loss in confidence following his qualifying tumble Remy was focused on making a good start after a strong morning morning warm up saw him lapping within half a second of his personal best lap of the weekend.
Lap one saw the #87 rider up to 21st before a multi lap battle raged. Remy dropped to 24th before regrouping to finish 20th in a shortened race that was red flagged on safety grounds due to the weather.
