Forward Racing set for Brno comeback

It looks like Forward Racing's absence from MotoGP will be very brief with Loris Baz revealing they will be back on the grid in the Czech Republic.

The Swiss-based squad confirmed at the end of July that they will miss the race at Indianapolis this weekend following the arrest of team boss Giovanni Cuzari on corruption and fraud charges.

The team then suffered another setback when Stefan Bradl terminated his contract and signed for the Gresini Aprilia outfit.

However, team manager Marco Curioni has always maintained that it was only a matter of time before they make a comeback and Baz has confirmed they plan to race at Brno on 16 August.

"Finally a good news!!! I will be back in Brno with my team!" he wrote on Twitter.

The team are yet to confirm who will partner Baz with Claudio Corti, who replaced Bradl at Sachsenring last time out after the German picked up a hand injury, favourite to keep the seat.
