Gabor Talmacsi who dropped out of the motorcycle racing scene at the end of 2010 after refusing to pay to ride, and has kept busy up to now with rally races, will be debuting in this weekend’s World Supersport with Pro Race Honda.
The 31-year old Hungarian rider and former 125cc World Champion (in 2007) will be the fourth rider to race for the team after they initially started the 2012 season with Lukas Pesek at Phillip Island and Imola, then switched to Lorenzo Lanzi who took a shocking win at a damp Assen, and then gave the ride to reigning CIV Supersport champion Ilario Dionisi, who took over at Monza and Donington Park .
Pro Race Honda isn’t the only team playing muscial chairs; Bike Service Racing has divorced from WTR Ten 10 Racing (the usual budget problems and they showed up at Donington without their hospitality and the bikes were transported to England by another team) and which left Massimo Roccoli without a full time ride, but at least he’ll be replacing injured Vladimir Leonov in Yakhnich Motorsport for this Misano round. Heading from Lorini to replace Roccoli will be Andrea Antonelli, while Lorini has decide to keep on Raffaele de Rosa who wild carded for them at Monza and Donington Park.
