Okay, so still not my take on the Rossi news, but it’s nice to talk about other things too!
Although rumoured for some time it has just been officially announced by the Ambrogio Next Racing team that Alex Marquez, younger brother of Moto2 championship leader Marc, will be replacing ousted Simone Grotzkyj for the rest of the season.
Marquez currently races in the Spanish CEV Buckler championship, it has not yet been revealed if he will continue to contest the championship he currently leads but it is possible as there is no conflict between the remaining fixtures and his new Moto3 duties.
The young Catalan rider had already impressed with his point scoring wildcard performances this year, with a best finish of sixth at his home Catalunya grand prix, for the Estrella Galicia 0,0 Repsol sponsored Honda team, the same sponsors he has in the Spanish championship with Monlau Competicion.
