MotoGP Australia: Moto2: Remy Gardner 'en-route to Phillip Island'

'In response to the stories circulating in the press and on social media, [Remy] has not been charged with any offence relating to a road rage incident that occurred in Japan' - statement.
Remy Gardner looks set to compete in this weekend's Moto2 race at Phillip Island in Australia despite speculation he could miss his home round of the championship.

Gardner's father, 500cc Grand Prix legend Wayne, was arrested in Japan last weekend, with reports claiming he was involved in a road rage incident as he and Remy entered the Motegi circuit on Sunday morning.

Gardner was said to have become embroiled in a scuffle with three men, allegedly grabbing them by the collar and pushing them around. Japanese newspapers also report that 18-year-old Remy had been behind the wheel before the incident and may not have had an international driving licence.

It was feared that Remy would miss this weekend's Australian race, but a statement issued on Wednesday said he is now on his way to Phillip Island and has not been charged with any offence.

“Despite recent media speculation and rumour, Remy Gardner is currently en-route to Phillip Island where his intention is to ride in the upcoming Moto2 race in front of his home fans.

“In response to the stories circulating in the press and on social media, he has not been charged with any offence relating to a road rage incident that occurred in Japan and looks forward to completing the season with Tasca Scuderia Racing. Remy has no comment in relation to the incident.”

The statement made no mention of Wayne, who is still thought to be detained in Japan.

Not surprised. Wayne Gardner was always a far better motorcycle racer than a man. If his big mouth has got him in trouble then I hope the Japanese authorities take the appropriate steps.
