Remy Gardner first jumped on a motorcycle at just four years of age and quickly developed a strong passion for racing. He progressed in Dirt track, Supermotard and then Mini Bikes leagues in his homeland over several years, and then participated in the Mediterranean Moto3 series in 2011 which he completed as the runner-up and after relocating to Spain, he competed in the ultra tight Spanish FIM CEV league.
He constantly made headway and went on to join the Moto3 World Championship in 2015 and here the highlight was finishing in 10th at his home Grand Prix. Proceeding this, Remy outgrew the lightweight bikes and subsequently, moved to the CEV Moto2 series before being called up to replace Alessandro Tonnucci in the World Championship at the Catalan Grand Prix, mid-way through the 2016 season. Here, he showed his potential by seizing a point scoring finish on his debut.
The Australian produced some eye-catching performances in the remaining GP’s in the racing year and next the promising rider united with the French squad Tech3 for 2017 where he continued to showcase his talent by fighting for some strong finishes aboard the Mistral 610. Thereby, Remy snatched a first ever Moto2 top 10 result with a 9th at the Czech GP, finishing the year off with a total of 23 points. He remained with Tech3 for 2018 but Gardner's season was heavily hampered after a training accident left him with two broken legs, with a best finish of fifth coming in Valencia.
In 2020, the eldest son of former 500cc World Champion Wayne Gardner joined SAG Team. He reached the podium once and finished four times in the Top 6. The following season, Remy continued to make progress in the intermediate class with three podiums and his first win in the category finally came in the Portimao finale.
This victory caught the eye of the Red Bull KTM Ajo team who recruited the Australian rider for the 2021 season. And what a year it was going to be for Remy. Consistency became key for the rider, and his five wins, six P2s and one P3 allowed him to claim the 2021 Moto2 World Championship title ahead of rookie sensation teammate Raul Fernandez.
In 2022, Remy Gardner reunites with the French squad Tech3 KTM Factory Racing and will make his debut in the MotoGP class alongside Raul Fernandez, aiming for the rookie of the year title.
