Pramac Ducati has announced that multiple Moto2 race winner Andrea Iannone will join Sylvain Guintoli in testing for the team at Mugello on Monday.
Guintoli is set to replace the injured Loris Capirossi at the forthcoming Sachsenring and Laguna Seca rounds, while rising Italian star Iannone - who won three Moto2 races last year and one so far this year - will be getting his first taste of premier-class power.
"I'm sorry that Loris wasn't able to be with us this weekend at Mugello. Sylvain Guintoli, an old acquaintance of the Pramac Racing Team, will take his place tomorrow," confirmed Pramac team principal Paolo Campinoti.
"The test will help Sylvain in case Capirex isn't recovered in time to race at the Sachsenring or Laguna Seca, but we're hopeful that Loris will return soon.
"We're also pleased to welcome Andrea Iannone, who will test our bike in order to get used to the MotoGP class."
