Sissis replaced by Migno at Mahindra Racing

Sissis replaced by Migno at Mahindra Racing

Mahindra Racing has announced that it has contracted Andrea Migno for the rest of the 2014 Moto3™ season. The Italian will take the place of Australian Arthur Sissis.

Following Sunday’s Czech Grand Prix at Brno, Mahindra communicated Sissis’ departure from the Indian outfit within its post-race press release.

‘Mahindra Racing today announced that rising Italian star Andrea Migno will replace Sissis until the end of the season,’ the paragraph begins. ‘Migno (18), a graduate of the VR46 Riders’ Academy, has earned his chance with strong performances in the FIM CEV Repsol championship.’

“I take the opportunity to say goodbye to Arthur, to thank him for his contribution, and to welcome Andrea Migno for Silverstone,” states Mahindra Racing CEO Mufaddal Choonia. “I am looking forward to more exciting racing.”

“It wasn’t a good race and not how I wanted to say goodbye to Mahindra,” commented Sissis, who ended the Brno race in 26th place. “Once again I was in among the slower riders, and it was impossible to get away.”

Sissis has been part of the World Championship full-time since 2012, having made his debut with a one-off appearance at the 2011 Malaysian Grand Prix.

Migno will make only his third Grand Prix appearance at Silverstone next weekend, having previously raced in the Catalan and Czech Grands Prix of 2013.
