Takumi Takahashi to replace Alex Rins at the Grand Prix of San Marino— LCR Team (@lcr_team) September 6, 2023
Suzuka 8 Hours winner and HRC rider Takumi Takahashi will participate this weekend at the Grand Prix of San Marino, replacing LCR Honda CASTROL rider Alex Rins, who is still recovering from his injury.
Iker Lecuona has been Rins’ replacement rider since the latter fractured his leg at the Italian GP in June, but Lecuona is on WorldSBK duties in Magny-Cours this weekend. Instead, Suzuka 8 Hours winner Takahashi will line up alongside compatriot Takaaki Nakagami (LCR Honda Idemitsu) in Misano.
