2 litre Touring Car Star is heading for a stewards' enquiry!
Cracking doco. It seemed comprehensive. My only question would be what is his relationship with his brothers, or did I misinterpret that he did?

He doesn't have the stats Doohan and Stoner have, but he was far more impactful in his rise.

Love it when an Aussie's win a world championship in motorsport!

Got to love him being part of the official bicentenary celebrations, riding onto the stage on his Rothmans bike!

I had a listen to Gardner talk about his time in the V8's on the V8 Sleuth pod cast. He has not changed a bit, he sure ain't humble.

Most bike racers aren't, Mick Doohan would be a good example. I had some conversations with some one who worked in HRC and he was not the flavour of the month with some people apparently.

If I could then give an exception to the rule, Mr Troy Bayliss, one of nature's gentlemen. Being interviewed after a MotoGP win and referring to Rossi as "the Master" some years later the Thursday before the Philip Island World Supers round at the Isle of Wright Hotel sitting at a table next to ours with his non racing friends from Taree and just talking and laughing like any other patron.

Gardner did it the hard way which explains his attitude, he came to the UK with naff all, much like Bayliss later and plenty of others.

He was tough nut, had a particular way of riding and did not suffer fools. He was also a bit of a moaner at times, and was very injury prone, but a tougher son of a gun you could not find.

Mick was totally different, they didn't get on, for obvious reasons as Mick was much quicker once things came his way, he was not a man keen to develop the bike though, if it worked, leave it, not the HRC way. And he absolutely HATED the fact that everyone could see his data, his setups etc, and to be honest I don't blame him. He did the work, and he took the mickey later by developing a different engine like the old pre big bang units, purely to mess with Okada's and Crivilles head as he knew they would not be able to ride it. And he was right.

That is some tough stuff.
