Corsi returns to replace Odendaal at Misano

Italian will be back in action as he steps in at NTS RW Racing GP for the San Marino GP

After being replaced by compatriot Mattia Pasini at Tasca Racing Scuderia Moto2 for the remainder of the season, Simone Corsi will be back on the Moto2™ grid as the Italian replaces Steven Odendaal at NTS RW Racing GP for the Gran Premio Octo di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini.

Corsi, a 21-time Grand Prix podium finisher in the lightweight and intermediate classes, left Tasca Racing after the German GP having picked up 10 points in the opening half of the 2019 season. Meanwhile, Odendaal and NTS RW Racing GP recently announced that they had ended their contract by mutual consent, so the team have called on the experience of Corsi to jump on the bike for Round 13. Corsi has a Misano podium finish to his name which came in the form of a third place in the 125cc 2008 World Championship – his most prolific season to date.

The San Marino GP gets underway on 13th September, with the Moto2™ race beginning at 12:20 local time (GMT+2) on Sunday afternoon.
