Official: Remy Gardner leaves MotoGP and signs with GRT Yamaha

Remy Gardner’s MotoGP adventure ends after just one season: the Australian, in 2023, will move to Superbike where he will race for Team GRT Yamaha.


The World Superbike Network continues to enrich riders leaving the World Championships. The latest name to be added to the list of riders responsible for the move is Remy Gardner: The Australian will be racing the World Superbike 2023 with Team GRT Yamaha.

The 2021 Moto2 World Champion, after a difficult season in MotoGP in which he has so far collected only 9 points, has chosen Superbike to relaunch his career. In fact, Gardner was fired so hard by KTM who also criticized his professionalism and working methods.

The GRT Yamaha team is betting on the talent of the Australian. The team, which will part ways with Jarrett Gerloff, needs a driver to bring the team back to fight on the podium and for the title of Best Independent Team.

Gardner’s move to Superbike is reminiscent of the Iker Lecuona track: The young Spanish rider was actually brought down by Team Tech3 KTM before joining Honda’s official team in production derivatives.

“We are very happy to welcome Remy – Announces Filippo Conte, Team Principal, GRT Yamahain our team. He fits our growth program perfectly and we know he’s a top driver. He has already proven his skills by winning the world champion title. Remy’s signing will be an important factor for Yamaha and the GRT team.”

also Andrea Dusoli, Road Racing Director of Yamaha Motor Europe, He was eager to welcome Gardner: “Remy is a young and passionate talent who already boasts excellent palm trees at the World Championships. We are delighted to have a rider like him who knows what it means to race at the highest level of motorcycle racing in the world. He’s definitely the perfect choice for Yamaha’s WorldSBK program and we’re eager to see what he can do on the R1.”

Team GRT Yamaha must now announce the name of the rider who will join Gardner next season. After Gerloff’s salute, Kohta Nozane’s place in the team is also not secure. The Japanese have shown little progress since his debut season at WorldSBK and this raises doubts at the top of the team.
