Ahead of the 2019 summer break, Tasca Racing Scuderia Moto2 have announced that Mattia Pasini will replace Simone Corsi from the Czech GP onwards.
Pasini has competed in four races as a replacement rider this season already, three for Petronas Sprinta Racing in Austin, Le Mans and at Mugello, while at Jerez he replaced the injured Jake Dixon in the Sama Qatar Angel Nieto Team ranks. Now, the Italian will complete the rest of the 2019 campaign with Tasca Racing Scuderia Moto2 as they replace Corsi with the 12-time Grand Prix race winner.
