A week on from the stunning performance that saw Remy Gardner race to a maiden World Championship point in Moto2 and the talented Aussie was making headlines at the Catalunya circuit again, but this time as a Moto2 winner.
The latest round of the FIM CEV Repsol European championship took place on the same circuit as last week's Catalan GP with Gardner keen to continue his run of form. Returning to race with the Race Experience team had it not been for a technical problem in the opening encounter Gardner could have been celebrating the double!
A couple of small front end crashes during practice didn't hinder #87. Gardner secured a front row start (2nd) after he was one of only a couple of riders to improve during the warmer second qualifying session on Saturday thanks to some set-up changes between sessions.
Never out of the top three all weekend Remy made an incredible start when the lights went out to start race one, creating a gap of more than 3 seconds in the opening 3 laps of the 17 lap race as he ran comfortably at the front. Continuing to stretch his advantage Gardner's chance of a maiden win were over before half distance as his Race Experience machine started to smoke before failing, taking what was odds on to be his first ever Moto2 podium with it.
