Remy Gardner has re-signed with Yamaha to remain in the GRT team for the 2024 WorldSBK season.

Gardner joined the GRT Yamaha WorldSBK squad for 2023 after he was left without a seat in MotoGP at the end of 2022.

It has not been an entirely straightforward debut season for the 2021 Moto2 World Champion but, in the previous round in the Czech Republic, he was able to replicate his best result of the season with a sixth place in Race 2, matching the finish of Race 2 in Assen

Ahead of the upcoming ninth round of the 2023 WorldSBK season in Magny-Cours, Gardner has now announced his re-signing with Yamaha to remain in the GRT squad for 2024, confirming an unchanged rider line-up for GRT in 2024 after the previous re-signing of Dominique Aegerter. At the time, Aegerter's re-signing was confirmed to be only with Yamaha, but with the Gardner news comes also the confirmation that GRT will remain unchanged for next year, which was probably confirmed by the earlier signing by Yamaha of Jonathan Rea.

Remy Gardner said: "I am really thrilled to announce my renewal with Yamaha for the 2024 season and I believe we have a promising future together. Next year will be my second year with the R1, and I couldn't be happier with the GYTR GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team. With an additional year of experience under our belts, I have high hopes for our performance. I already feel right at home, so it's a great feeling to continue this journey, and I want to express my sincere gratitude to Yamaha for this fantastic opportunity."

Andrea Dosoli, Road Racing Manager at Yamaha Motor Europe, added: "We are happy to be able to announce the extension of our partnership with Remy, and to finalise an unchanged rider line up at the GYTR GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team for the 2024 season. We can see both the talent and the potential that Remy possesses and, although it’s been something of an inconsistent debut season for him in WorldSBK so far, we remain confident that we can achieve our goals together during the remainder of this season and the next.

“With Remy now onboard, we are looking forward to what promises to be an exciting 2024 season, which Yamaha will be contesting with an incredibly strong line up, with the four riders racing for the Pata Yamaha Prometeon WorldSBK and GYTR GRT Yamaha WorldSBK teams counting 11 World Championship titles between them. This exceptional rider line up comes with significant responsibility for Yamaha, but we are committed to providing a competitive package that matches the talent of our riders and we have secured the resources and support required.”

The 2023 WorldSBK season continues this weekend (8-10 September) with round nine in Magny-Cours, France.
