Florian Marino will replace the injured Simone Corsi in next weekend's San Marino Moto2 round at Misano.

Corsi required surgery for a broken arm sustained at Silverstone, with his Forward-run Kalex now going to 21-year-old Frenchman Marino.

Marino is currently third in the World Supersport Championship riding for the Kawasaki Intermoto Ponyexpres team.

"First of all I want to wish to Simone a speedy recovery," said Marino. "It is a pity because this season he has been performing well. I have always been watching Moto2 since this Championship started wishing to race there one day.

"Finally that day has arrived and I am really excited to get the chance to ride in a Grand Prix in a team such as NGM Forward Racing. I am looking forward to start this new experience."
