Iker Lecuona looks set to replace Alex Rins for the British Grand Prix

Gold and Goose

Iker Lecuona is reportedly set for his third appearance in MotoGP this season as the young Spaniard seems set to ride for LCR Honda at the British Grand Prix.

Iker Lecuona will reportedly stand in for an injured Honda MotoGP for the third time this season. However, this time he will be in the LCR Honda Team and not with Repsol Honda.

So far this year Lecuona has ridden for Repsol Honda at the Spanish Grand Prix and the Dutch Grand Prix as he replaced Marc Marquez in Spain and Joan Mir at Assen. This time Lecuona will be replacing Alex Rins, who broke his leg back at the Italian Grand Prix.


With this call up to MotoGP Lecuona will have to miss the Suzuka 8 Hour which takes place on the same weekend as the British Grand Prix. However, Tetsuta Nagashima is reportedly fit enough to take part so will take his position back in the team.

There have been rumours that with these replacement rides Honda may be looking at Lecuona as an option for its MotoGP lineup in 2024. With Rins being heavily linked with a move to Yamaha a ride in the LCR Honda Team looks like it will be available for next year.

Lecuona is currently contracted with Honda in WorldSBK, but his contract runs out at the end of the year. However, a move back to MotoGP may tempt Lecuona to put pen to paper on a new deal with Honda for next season.
