Remy Gardner, the Australian rider from the Stop & Go team, earned a well-deserved victory in Portimao (Portugal) in the final race of the 2020 season with some brilliant riding. Remy, who started from pole position thanks to his results in Saturday’s qualifying session, rode a very intelligent race where he was always in top three and among the various riders fighting for the world championship. In the final lap, Gardner overtook Marini and set the fastest lap and a new track record, demonstrating his amazing riding skills and high standards. This is Remy Gardner’s first world championship victory in his career and means he ends the Moto2 season on a high.
In the end, Remy finished the season sixth in the overall Moto2 class with a total of 135 points, including one victory and three podium finishes.
There was a double-podium finish in the Moto3 category for GALFER riders, thanks to Dennis Foggia (Leopard Racing) who finished 2nd, and Jeremy Alcoba (Gresini Racing) who finished 3rd. Dennis Foggia was forced to do a double long-lap penalty, but despite this he managed to make up over 15 positions to finish second in the race in Portimao. In addition, Jeremy Alcoba claimed his first world championship podium finish with an excellent third place. And we should also mention the fourth place finish of Sergio García and the Monlau Competición team, who now bid farewell to the world of motorcycling after participating for nine consecutive years, always with the support of GALFER.
