Danny Kent replaces injured Schrötter at the Red Bull Ring

The Dynavolt Intact GP team went directly from Czech Republic to the Red Bull Ring in Austria, to continue their hunt for championship points in the second consecutive race. Unfortunately without Marcel Schrötter, who has to miss the eleventh race of the season due to his hand surgery only a few days ago. The British rider, Danny Kent, jumps in to replace Schrötter.

Only three days ago, on Monday, Marcel Schrötter underwent a surgery on the scaphoid of his left hand. After long consideration, the Dynavolt Intact GP team decided to give the 24-year old some more time to heal his injury and thus to miss the race in Spielberg. The risk of further complications is simply too high.

Though, the Suter of the Bavarian Racing Team will not be unused this weekend. Danny Kent, Moto3-World Champion of 2015, was engaged to be the replacement. The 23-year-old knows the Suter from the winter tests already and he even started up until the third race of the season for the Kiefer Racing Team.

Sandro Cortese, who was crowned Moto3-World Champion three yeas before Danny, managed to overcome the unfortunate race finish of Brno in a really short amount of time. An otherwise positive race weekend in Czech Republic gives the 27-year-old confidence for the Austrian Grand Prix.

Just like a post card scenery, the Red Bull Ring lies in between green mountains in the Austrian province of Styria. This track offers varied motorsport-action, thanks to its 65m-height difference and 4,3km-length with 7 right and 3 left turns.
