Remy Gardner Biography

Remy Gardner joined father Wayne as a grand prix world champion with a tense Moto2 title victory over team-mate Raul Fernandez in 2021, then stayed alongside Fernandez as they both moved to the MotoGP class with Tech3 KTM.

The RC16 soon proved a handful for both rookies but, with Fernandez eager to leave and Red Bull KTM's Miguel Oliveira turning down the Tech3 offer, Gardner looked set to remain for a second season.

But KTM management thought otherwise, informing a shocked Gardner at their home Austrian round that he would not be retained and lining up their next Moto2 champion, Augusto Fernandez, to take his place.

With no alternative MotoGP seats available, Gardner thus joined Darryn Binder and the retired Andrea Dovizioso in leaving the grid - which was reduced from 24 to 22 by the exit of Suzuki.

While Binder is heading for Moto2, Gardner - who scored 13 points in MotoGP, leaving him between Fernandez and binder in 23rd - will make a new start with GRT Yamaha in the WorldSBK championship.

Prior to 2022, Gardner raced for Tech3 in Moto2 during 2017 and 2018 when the French team was still campaigning its own chassis.

It proved a struggle with Gardner no higher than 19th in the world championship (not helped by injuries) and he switched to the class-leading Kalex frame, at the SAG team, for 2019.

Also revelling in the extra power from the new Triumph engines, Gardner took his first grand prix podium that season, followed by a long-awaited debut victory at the final round of 2020.

Joining the Red Bull Ajo team for 2021, Gardner's mix of speed and consistency - 12 podiums from 18 rounds, including 5 wins - proved enough to hold off the searing pace of rookie Fernandez.
