John Hopkins will rejoin the Suzuki team for next month's Malaysian Grand Prix at Sepang.
The Anglo-American rider has secured his second wild-card event of the season, despite having been unable to take part in the Czech Grand Prix after injuring his right hand in practice. Hopkins has raced in MotoGP this season, however, having replaced Spaniard Alvaro Bautista at the Spanish Grand Prix.
"I am really pumped to get this chance to ride in a MotoGP race with the Rizla Suzuki team," said Hopkins. "I thought after Brno that I wouldn't get the opportunity again and was really disappointed that I missed out there due to a silly mistake, so to be heading to Sepang is fantastic.
"It is one of my favorite tracks and I know it well because we used to test there a lot. My main focus is on the British championship at the moment, but as soon as that is over I will be in MotoGP mode and putting all my efforts into getting a good result at Sepang and showing that I can perform at the highest level. I really want to get back into MotoGP and this is a great chance to show what I can do.
"Again, I need to thank everyone at Rizla Suzuki for giving me this opportunity and my Samsung Crescent team – I hope that by the time I get back on the MotoGP bike we will have been celebrating something really big at Brands Hatch!"
Hopkins is currently leading the British Superbike championship onboard a Suzuki GSX-R1000.
