MotoGP Valencia: Parkes lands MotoGP return with Ioda

Broc Parkes will return to MotoGP racing in the final round of the 2015 season as the latest substitute for Alex de Angelis at IodaRacing.
Broc Parkes will make a return to the MotoGP World Championship for the 2015 finale in Valencia as the latest replacement for the injured Alex de Angelis at IodaRacing.

The experienced Australian competed in his first season of MotoGP racing last year with the Paul Bird Motorsport team before a move to British Superbikes in 2015 was curtailed after a run of disappointing results.

Having focused on endurance competition for the second-half of the 2015 season, Parkes will get back to frontline international competition with a ride on the ART-prepared by IodaRacing in Spain.

He will be the second rider to stand in for de Angelis, who suffered a series of injuries in a crash during the Japanese Grand Prix weekend, after Parkes' countryman Damian Cudlin rode the bike in Australia and Malaysia.

Meanwhile, Ioda has confirmed de Angelis will make an appearance in Valencia, his first public appearance since the Motegi accident, which left him in hospital for 19 days.

Insidejob: Good news. He is a fine rider who has had a lot of injuries pushing beyond the limits on inferior machinery. I'm sure he'll have fun trying not to finish last, on possibly the worst bike on the grid. Also he'll get the chance to eat a proper paella washed down with a liter or two of Sangria.
Yeah its the inferior machinery. That R1 in BSB was a dog wasnt it? Amazed Josh Brooks managed to win the championship on it and absolutely dominate the last half of the season. Just luck i guess.

Let's not forget ioda probably will want to give investors, sponsors etc a return by having the bike out there at the end of the season. Its a business too you know, and you would hope that with experience of a similar bike, tyres and circuit, that he will run round and keep the sponsors happy. Some people on here don't get it at all.
