Hofmann returns for home Grand Prix

Alex Hofmann will once again team up with Fuchs Kawasaki Team regulars Garry McCoy and Andrew Pitt as he makes his fourth wildcard appearance of the season at the Cinzano German Grand Prix this weekend. After taking a top ten finish in his most recent appearance at the rain-drenched Gauloises Dutch TT at Assen four weeks ago, the 23-year-old German will be looking for a repeat performance at Sachsenring, where he also finished tenth riding as a replacement for Loris Capirossi on the Honda NSR500 one year ago.

The ninth round of the MotoGP World Championship is also a home race for much of the factory Kawasaki squad, who are managed by former 250cc rider Harald Eckl and have their European technical base in Germany.
