Carlos Checa will miss the rest of the races this season.
After the Istambul incident in the free practice day, the doctors found the problem was more serious and the Spaniard has a hip fracture and because of this, the Ducati rider won't be able to ride this season anymore.
Nicolo Canepa was called to arm from the WSTK 1000 where he's currently fighting for the world crown of this category on with a Barni Racing Team Ducati Panigale.
The move seems logic and hopefully will work to get some good results, but this solution is only available for Laguna Seca where WSTK 1000 is not present.
It still remains a mistery who will ride the Alstare Ducati bike at Magny Cours and Jerez.
I'm very happy regarding this opportuniti, riding at Laguna Seca with the official Ducati Panigale is incredible. I'm very confident because that's a type of track that suits Panigale very well and besides that is one of my favourite tracks.
