The Forward Racing team is set for a return to MotoGP action at next weekend’s Brno round, with Claudio Corti riding in place of the departed Stefan Bradl.
Following the arrest of team boss Giovanni Cuzari last month for fraud and corruption charges, Forward had no option to pull out of racing at Indy due to a lack of funds, casting doubt on the Swiss team's future.
Soon after the announcement, Bradl opted to terminate his Forward contract and take up the vacant seat at Gresini Aprilia instead.
But now, team manager Marco Curioni has been able to access the accounts that were frozen in the immediate aftermath of Cuzari’s arrest, enabling the team to compete at Brno on August 16.
The news was confirmed by Forward rider Loris Baz on social media:
Corti, who stepped in for the injured Bradl at the Sachsenring, will take the German’s place alongside Baz, while Simone Corsi and Lorenzo Baldassarri will reprise their Forward seats in Moto2.
