Moto2: Mattia Pasini and JiR Racing Break Up

That Mattia Pasini was profoundly unhappy with his MotoBI/TSR chassis Moto2 bike and that he was on the outs with Gianluca Montiron of JiR (Japan Italy Racing) was a well known fact, but in the past few days the rumors that the Italian would be leaving were getting stronger and today JiR officially announced that the two will be going separate ways and Pasini will not be taking part in this weekend’s Catalunya GP.

Pasini will be temporarily replaced by 27 year old Yusuke Teshima, TSR’s test rider and last year’s ST600 champion in Japan, while Montiron will be looking for a more permanent replacement to finish the season alongside Simone Corsi.
Mattia Pasini ’s best result this year was a sixth place at Losail, Qatar, followed by four DNF’s and a 14th spot at Assen.
