Marchand to step in for injured Sekiguchi

The Campetella Racing team announced today that French rider Hugo Marchand will replace Taro Sekiguchi for the beginning of the 250cc World Championship. The Japanese rider will be out of action for the next six weeks after breaking his left leg during the last official test.

Originally contracted by the UGT Kurz - Yamaha team for this season, Marchand will be lined-up alongside Alex Baldolini on a kitted Aprilia, the same type of machinery he rode during the past three seasons (for the Freesoul Abruzzo team and the Equipe de France).
