Shane Byrne just took his first race win in the third British Superbike race at Oulton Park today and in two weeks time will find himself aboard an ART/CRT machine temporarily replacing James Ellison in the upcoming MotoGP race at Le Mans, according to several British websites.
Apparently team owner Paul Bird wants a second opinion on the severe chatter issues that Ellison has been struggling with.
The two-time British Superbike champion has already raced in MotoGP, but it was back in 2004 and 2005 with Aprilia (9 starts), Team Roberts on a KTM and then replaced Troy Bayliss for two races in Team Pons.
