After a wild-card ride for the Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 team at Le Mans, Danny Kent will return to Moto2 at Mugello.

The Englishman, who split from the Kiefer (Suter) squad in Austin, is to stand-in for the injured Iker Lecuona at the Garage Plus Interwetten (Kalex) team.

Lecuona required surgery after re-fracturing his right collarbone when he was caught up in Alex Marquez's practice highside in France.

Kent qualified and finished tenth on his return to the Moto3 class during the rain-interrupted Le Mans weekend.

The 2015 world champion crossed the finish line less than two-seconds from runner-up Araon Canet and was second quickest in the wet FP2 session.

However there were no fixed plans for Kent to remain on a third Ajo KTM beyond Le Mans, partially due to the limited number of wild-card places available at each race.
