Following a season filled with injury, the 19 year old finished just six of the 12 races he entered this season and was unable to better a result of 19th position. Coming up from the European Junior Cup in 2013, Sebestyen entered the WSBK championship on an BMW EVO machine, and was hindered by injuries all year.
Replacing the injured Imre Toth Jr at Portimao and Laguna Seca, compatriot Rizmayer will now take the ride permanently for the second half of the season.
Gabor Rizmayer has scored points in one of the four races so far his season, and has competed in 11 GP races in his career has said: “I like to thank BMW Racing Team Toth for an other great opportunity to race on world championship level. After the successful American round, where I finished in the points for the team, I’m looking forward to fight for more similar, and better results at Jerez.”
Imre Toth Jr. returns from a bad shoulder and feet injury. The team is determined to carry on the high note after the good results at Sepang and Laguna Seca.
“After my crash at Misano I recovered from my injuries perfectly, without surgery or any other serious medical intervention. Jerez is a track I know very well from my previous MotoGP™ experience in the former 125 and 250cc categories and last year’s World Supersport round.”
The team would like to thank Peter Sebestyen’s hard work during this season, and wishing him the best to recover from his injuries the fullest, and fastest.
