MotoGP Germany: Aoyama back in place of Abraham?

Honda test rider and former MotoGP racer Hiroshi Aoyama looks set to make his fourth appearance of the season at the forthcoming German round.

The 2009 250cc world champion is due to replace the injured Karel Abraham at the AB Motoracing team.

Abraham required surgery for a toe dislocation during practice in Catalunya with Michael van der Mark getting close to an agreement to ride Abraham's Open class Honda at the recent Dutch round.

Meanwhile Aoyama stood-in for Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa at three events earlier this season, claiming a best finish of eleventh.

The Japanese concluded his full time MotoGP career at the end of last season.

Tomco: Might as well just leave it parked up in the garage. More chance of it scoring points than giving it to Aoyama, with all due respect.
Aoyama scored points in every single race except one last season? He's also a 250cc World Champion who beat SuperSic fair and square in a straight fight. I know Japanese wildcards have, at times, been a bum on a seat and offered nothing to the racing, but Hiro Aoyama is a class act who is certainly not out of place on a MotoGP grid. Oli
