Team Tech 3 KTM Factory Racing – MotoGP

Riders

Remy Gardner
Born 24 February 1998 in Sydney, Australia.

Son of former 500 world champion Wayne Gardner, Remy switched to tarmac at the age of ten after having raced motocross and enduro in Australia. In his teenage years he left Sydney and moved to Spain where he joined the Mediterranean championship. In 2013 he raced in Moto3 CEV. Two years later he moved up to Grands Prix to race for Alain Bronec's CIP team, but struggled to adapt due to his size. He then switched to the Moto2 category. First in Spain, then very quickly in the World Championship, where he replaced Alessandro Tonucci at Tasca Racing. In 2017, Remy Gardner joined the Tech3 Racing team. His apprenticeship was complicated by a series of injuries that hampered his progress. Nevertheless, he finished his time with the French team with an encouraging fifth place. He then moved to SAG, where he scored a pole and a podium, but still lacked consistency. 2020 saw him more regularly at the front of the pack, taking his first victory in Portimao, to wrap up the season in sixth position. Recruited by the Red Bull KTM Ajo team, it all came good in 2021. With twelve podiums, including five wins, he clinched the Moto2 world title and paved his way to MotoGP with Tech 3.

COMPETITIVE RECORD

  • 115 Grand Prix starts

Raul Fernandez
Born 23 October 2000 in Madrid, Spain.

Raúl Fernández was just 14 years old when he made his debut in the Spanish Moto3 championship. The kid from Madrid was also selected for the Red Bull Rookies Cup, racing in the series for two years and taking a string of podiums. In 2016, he finished third and got on the final CEV podium. He also raced in his first Grand Prix as a replacement. He won the Spanish title in 2018 and went on to do a full season in Grand Prix the following year with the Nieto team. Six times Fernandez managed to break into the top ten. However, he made too many mistakes to finish his first world championship season back in 21st position. In 2020, the Spaniard joined the Ajo team. He took his first podium in Aragon and his first European Grand Prix win. Fourth at the end of the season, he then moved up to Moto2 and made an instant impression. Winning eight times, he lost out on the world championship to teammate Remy Gardner by just 4 points. They will be ‘reunited’ again this year in MotoGP with the Tech 3 KTM team.
