Remy will race an ex Thomas Luthi Kalex machine with the Sebastien Gimbert run outfit which was started to provide the best all round stepping stone to the World Championship for young, upcoming riders. Results depending, the deal will see also Remy participate as a wildcard in the Moto2 World Championship during the season.

An official team announcement including the identities of Remy’s team mates will be made shortly.

Aussie teenager Gardner is no stranger to the Spanish CEV series having raced competitively in Moto3 two seasons ago before his full time debut in the Moto3 World Championship last year during which he scored a career best finish of 10th in Phillip Island.

Testing will begin in March.

“After the last few weeks I really didn’t expect to land something so good, especially with the new season only a few weeks away. I think in some ways it’s a blessing in disguise and there is nothing wrong with taking a sideways step to go two steps forward which is what I think can happen in this scenario. I am really happy, Race Experience have a lot to offer and I can’t wait to start testing.”
