Karel Hanika will jump in at the #14 Omega Maco Racing team onboard a Yamaha R1, EWC-Mag.com has learned.
The former GP rider from Czech republic will replace Jimmy Maccio to partner in the team with Pawel Szkopek and Björn Estment.
“I didn’t have much time on the bike,” Hanika told EWC-Mag.com. He had travelled to the Paul Ricard Circuit as fourth rider for the team YART Yamaha.
“I only had the two Qualifying sessions on the bike and the first one was full wet. In the end I did a 1:55 which is pretty good considering the small amount of riding time that I had.”
