Filip Salac will complete the remainder of this season with PrustelGP - the team he began his Moto3 career with after parting ways with Team Snipers. 

The move comes as a surprise following the Czech rider’s exploits in Germany just days ago, as he took a maiden pole position, while also claiming a career best of second during the recent Le Mans Grand Prix.  

Salac’ return to PrustelGP also means a return to KTM following the least two seasons which have been on Honda machinery. 

Salac will ride alongside Ryusei Yamanaka, as he replaces the late Jason Dupasquier.  

Salac said: "I want to thank Florian [PrustelGP] and the whole PrüstelGP for giving me this chance, after me and Snipers team decided to part ways. 

"I am very happy because the team has proved to be strong this year and I will be working with people I already know from 2019. 

"I am confident to have a fast adaptation with KTM and I can't wait to start this new adventure. I will do my best also for Jason [Dupasquier]."

Moving into the Snipers team will be VR46 academy rider Alberto Surra who made his debut earlier this season in Mugello. 

"I am very happy with this opportunity that Team Snipers gave me, I am very excited because I have never left the Italian territory except with the tests of the 600 with VR46," added Surra. 

"I hope to live this dream as best as possible. Thanks to all: Mirko, Snipers and the Academy for this possibility."
