Ballerini steps in for Sekiguchi

Andrea Ballerini has been handpicked to step in for the injured Taro Sekiguchi for this Saturday's Commercialbank Grand Prix of Qatar. The rider from Florence will take the vacant spot in Ticinohosting-Campetella Racing, after the Japanese rider suffered a fractured femur which will keep him sidelined for the first third of the season. The team have announced that Ballerini will stand in for this weekend's Grand Prix, with the possibility of a continued association for more races this season.

In 2005 Ballerini took part in seven Grands Prix in the 250cc class, as part of the Abruzzo Racing team. A tenth place in Donington Park was his best result.
