LAW TO REPLACE INJURED KARRO
Jamie Law steps up to the plate as replacement for injured Matiss Karro in Qatar
Qatar, 28 February 2013
With the unlucky STR KTM rider Matiss Karro sidelined following an injury sustained whilst training at Lommel on Wednesday and with the bikes already on their way to Qatar the team turned to Cumbrian, Jamie Law is to replace injured MX1 rider Karro for the first two GP's in Qatar and Thailand.
Jamie has been showing some impressive early-season form and never one to shirk a challenge, he jumped at the chance to join the team again, as he had done last season in similar circumstances.
Team owner, Steve Turner said: "I'm more than happy to have Jamie back in the team. We needed someone to jump in at very short notice and with Jamie having done the same last season he was the obvious choice.
“It's a massive blow to lose Matiss before we've even started the season but hopefully it won't be too long before he's back. We're looking forward to seeing Jamie and his teammate, Jonathan Barragan opening their campaigns this weekend in Qatar.”
