As we told you earlier this week, Wayne Gardner was detained by Japanese police after an alleged road rage incident at Motegi just before last weekend’s Moto2 race. Now we have a few more details on that story.
Reports say Gardner’s son Remy (pictured) also supposedly had trouble with the police; Japanese journalists say Remy was allegedly driving the car before Wayne was involved in the scuffle. After the race, Remy is thought to have been detained by police for driving without a license, but since Japanese police would not confirm, due to his age, we don’t know for sure. What we do know is, he’s on his way to race in Australia this weekend, despite reports he could miss this weekend’s race. However, his father’s whereabouts are uncertain.
A statement on his website says Remy had nothing to do with the alleged road rage incident.
Wayne Gardner was the winner of the 1987 MotoGP 500 cc title, and his 18-year-old son Remy currently races in Moto2.
