Gardner Jnr to race in Spain

And promises to do his schoolwork every night!

FORMER 500cc World Champion Wayne Gardner's son looks set to contest in next year's Spanish CMV pre-GP Championships.

Thirteen-year-old Remy Gardner has said he wants to follow in his father's footsteps by making a name in motorcycle racing; it's something his Dad says he'll support, as long as Remy does his homework every night.

"He already loves road racing," said Gardner senior, "and is prepared to do all his schoolwork via the Internet while we're away. That part's crucial. He absolutely must continue his education when we're on the road."

Promising your parents you'll do all your schoolwork in return for a racing bike. Mmmm, now that sounds familiar...
