Ahead of this afternoon's British GP at Silverstone it has been reveled that Remy will join Tech 3 next season where he will contest the 2017 Moto2 World Championship.
Remy will continue to race the remaining rounds of the 2016 season for the Tasca GP Scuderia squad and is committed to achieving the best results possible for the remainder of this year's campaign.
Extracts from the official notification issued by the Tech 3 Racing Moto 2 team can be seen below:
"The Tech3 Racing team is pleased to announce that the exciting young duo of Xavi Vierge and Remy Gardner will ride the Mistral 610 Moto2 bikes in the 2017 World Championship. Xavi Vierge will remain with the team for his second full time campaign as he looks to carry on his progression. Meanwhile, Remy Gardner will join forces with Vierge in the Tech3 Racing Team pit box where he will complete his first full season in the intermediate class."
‰ÛÏI am extremely pleased to announce the 2017 Tech3 Racing Team line up," owner HervÌ© Poncharal said.
"First of all, we are really proud to have retained Xavi Vierge for another year. Together, we finished second in the Spanish CEV championship in 2015, but furthermore, he has had a strong rookie campaign so far, and I believe the best is yet to come.
"In addition, we were very impressed by him when he set the fourth fastest lap time at the Czech Grand Prix, and furthermore, it was great news when he told us that he wanted to stay.
"I am also delighted about our second rider for 2017. Wayne Gardner and I have a long history together and we have been friends for many years, so it‰Ûªs an incredible pleasure to have his son, Remy join our project.
"I think he is one of the hottest young talents that is coming through the ranks and he has a bright future ahead of him. Hopefully, we can help him grow and I am sure we can achieve success together. I think we will have a very exciting partnership, with two young riders who are keen to race each other.
"I have to thank both of them for trusting us and hopefully we will see the first good result when we start testing after the season finale. Also, I want to say thanks to the whole Tech3 Moto2 team for their hard work, and say welcome to Remy, plus welcome back to Xavi for 2017 where for sure, we will have some great times together," Poncharal concluded.
