Aussie Remy Gardener says he's ready for this weekend’s ‘home’ WorldSBK round aboard his GYTR GRT Yamaha YZF-R1.

After a huge break since Round 3 at Assen in April, Aussie WorldSBK racer Remy Gardner says he’s ready for his GYTR GRT Yamaha WorldSBK team’s home round at the Misano World Circuit, Marco Simoncelli, Italy this weekend.

Remy Gardner and Dominique Aegerter are both eager to return to racing after the break, during which the team completed a productive test session at the Misano circuit at the end of May with both riders enjoying valuable track time and building a solid base ahead of the race weekend.

Gardner scored his first WorldSBK podium at the last round at Assen

“We’ll finally be back racing after over a month!” said Gardner. “I cannot wait to be in Misano, we had a productive test there and I feel we’re ready for the fourth round of the season.

“We have a good base, I’m looking forward to it. We had a really strong round in Assen, and we’d like to keep the same line of attack here in Italy as well. It’ll be awesome to have also a lot of supporters on our side considering this is the home round of the team, I cannot wait to meet you all at the race track!”

Last time out in Assen, Gardner clinched his maiden WorldSBK podium in Race 2 following a strong weekend overall in the Netherlands.

Teammate Dominique Aegerter is also keen to get back to racing after an extended break

Gardner’s teammate Aegerter is also keen to get back on the track. “Finally the break is over, I can’t wait to get back on track,” he said. “We had a useful test session here in Misano just two weeks ago and we have a good base setup for the race, so I’m looking forward to it. Last year in Italy we enjoyed some solid races battling for the top five, we’d like to do the same this season. It’s also amazing it’ll be team’s home round, so we’ll have a lot of supporters on our side and I cannot wait to see all the people in Misano.”

The GYTR GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team has three new partners for the upcoming round and remainder of the 2024 season – Wallife, The Lawford and D-Factory branding will feature prominently on Gardner and Aegerter’s R1 WorldSBK machines, as well as all other team assets.
