FB Corse announce new signing for next year's premier class motorcycle series

JOHN HOPKINS is back in MotoGP for 2010 riding for the newly-formed Italian FB Corse team, the squad has announced.

Details are scant right now, but Hopper will be riding a machine cobbled together using parts (most notably a triple cylinder engine) from the now defunct BMW MotoGP effort. Hopkins will  be in Milan on January 21st for the team’s official presentation of their 2010 squad.

Hopkins endured an injury-plagued 2009 season, while riding in World Superbikes for the now defunct Stiggy Honda squad.

FB Corse has also secured Simone Gorztkyj to ride the team’s Moto2 bike. It's reported the team will run both MotoGP and Moto2 machines during European shakedown tests in January.
