Is Rory Skinner the next big British MotoGP hope? 

Former MotoGP rider and current American Racing Moto2 Team Manager, John Hopkins, believes so!

"He’s a huge talent, an unbelievable talent," Hopkins told BT Sport. "He’s currently racing in British Superbike with FS-3 Kawasaki and although that’s his primary focus and winning that championship, we’re trying to make a deal to have him as a wildcard this season, possibly; we’ve been working to try and do it at the home round.

"His ultimate goal is to come to Grand Prix racing and we’re trying to facilitate that.

"I personally believe Rory Skinner will be Britain's next competitive MotoGP racer. I'm just trying to help him get there!"

Alex Rins is expected find out if he's been passed fit for the Dutch MotoGP today.

Here are his words before the weekend.

“It was difficult for me to watch Sachsenring from the sidelines, but I had to make a careful and considered decision and do what’s best in the long run. 

“Waiting an extra few days should have allowed my wrist to heal a bit more, and I’m hoping that this time the pain will be more bearable. 

“I’ll seek advice from the doctors and try to take the weekend session-by-session, but for sure I’m very keen to race here in Assen – it’s a truly amazing place!”
