Struggling Triple M Honda WorldSBK rider PJ Jacobsen has been replaced with Florian Marino for the final two rounds of the season, starting this weekend in Argentina.

Despite having reportedly the same equipment as the works-backed Red Bull Honda team, Jacobsen hasn’t been able to get to grips with the Fireblade this year, so will now focus on a job for next season while Marino - who has finished his STK1000 duties - parachutes in.

“I’m looking forward to these two races and having the chance to test myself in the WorldSBK class, it’s a big challenge as I’ll have to learn a completely new motorcycle, but I’ll take things step by step,” said the Frenchman.
