Florian Marino has parted company with the Splitlath Aprilia British Superbike squad and will return to the World Supersport series from whence he came in a team with Dan Linfoot.
The French teenager has had a rough time of it in the domestic series and hasn't been able to get to grips with the RSV4 Superbike or British tracks.
“We are sad to see Florian go, but we think that this is the best move for him at this time. Florian is much liked by all of the team and we have parted on the best of terms.Personally I will miss the boy very much, he has a terrific personality and his humour entertains me all day long, he’d become like family to me," said team boss John Dimbylow.
“Florian will return to World Supersport and will be competing in Brno at the next round. He is an unbelievable young talent whom we hope to work again with at some stage in his career.”
