Remy Gardner will race again in Moto2 next year but will change team. His transition to the Ajo team, a junior team of KTM in the intermediate class, is official. In fact, the Australian has also joined the KTM GP Academy, which in the future will allow him to go up to MotoGP, as has already happened with Binder and Oliveira.
“I am very happy to be signing this contract for the team of my dreams – said Remy - I am proud to be part of the Red Bull and KTM family, and of Aki's structure. I want to thank all of them for giving me this opportunity for 2021. I also thank all those who have helped me to get here. I can't wait to start working with them next year and I hope that together we can do some amazing things."
Team manager Aki Ajo added: "I'm very happy to have Remy Gardner in our project next year. He is a young talent, but at the same time he has extensive experience in the World Championship. This combination of abilities is perfect for out project of developing riders. We are looking forward to working together next season. I know that Remy has something special compared to the rest of the competitors: he has great talent, a good feel for the bike and is a born fighter. I hope that, as a team, we can give him a boost during the season for the style that comes naturally to him. I am personally very excited to have Remy with us, and about what 2021 has in store."
Pit Beirer (KTM Motorsports Director) also commented: “I’m really pleased that Remy Gardner is coming under our umbrella. We think he is a special rider and we have seen some strong and exciting skills in his race performances over the years. We think with Aki’s experience we can help him to make the next important step in his career.”
