Florian Marino has left Splitlath Redmond

'We are sad to see Florian go, but we think that this is the best move for him at this time' - John Dimbylow
Young French rider Florian Marino has parted company from the Splitlath Redmond British Superbike team.

Marino, who joined the team this season after an impressive year in the World Supersport Championship, failed to score any points in BSB.

The 19-year-old from Cannes has secured a return to World Supersport and is due to compete in the next round of the series at Brno in the Czech Republic.

Splitlath Redmond team co-owner John Dimbylow said: “We are sad to see Florian go, but we think that this is the best move for him at this time.

“Florian is much liked by all of the team and we have parted on the best of terms.

“Personally I will miss the boy very much, he has a terrific personality and his humour entertains me all day long, he'd become like family to me,” he said.

“Florian will return to World Supersport and will be competing in Brno at the next round. He is an unbelievable young talent whom we hope to work again with at some stage in his career.”

Co-owner Derek Redmond added: “I'm very sorry to see Florian go. The guy is a huge talent and we've all enjoyed working with him but I think we all agree this is the best for him right now.

“We will all miss him and hope our paths cross again soon. We wish him the very best for the rest of the season.”

good thing for Florian, team is a joke. looks like he will be on a Kawasaki ZX6 for MSD R-N Racing Team India. such BS that he wasn't in WSS full-time this year, same with Riyo. So much for the Red Bull Rookies Cup doing a service to its former champions, the only former champion currently in the WC full-time is Jakub Kornfeil. Florian Marino, Jake Gagne and JD Beach go screwed over royally.

I have watch Marino throughout his career and there is no doubt that he is better than the results show.It is 100% the fault of the team why he is not getting results. You dont sit on the front row of a WSS grid and in seasons prior to WSS stand on rostrums with Gino Rea on Euro 600 stock bikes and then sit on the back of the BSB SBK grid without good reason. Good team,good riders,good bike 'my ****'as Jim Royle would say.A VERY WISE MOVE ON FLORIAN'S BEHALF
