Former Moto2 champion Toni Elias is set for a MotoGP comeback next weekend at Indianapolis replacing the injured Karel Abraham.

The Cardion AB Honda rider dislocated his toe during practice for June’s Barcelona round, and was forced to miss the subsequent races at Assen and the Sachsenring.

HRC tester Hiroshi Aoyama took Abraham’s place at the latter event, and now Elias is set for a one-off return at Indianapolis to fill in for the Czech according to a tweet from the official MotoGP account.

Elias, 32, last raced in the premier class in 2012, standing in for an injured Hector Barbera at Pramac Ducati, having previously competed full-time from 2005 to 2009 and again in 2011 after securing the inaugural Moto2 title in 2010.

The Spaniard was due to compete in World Superbikes this season for JR Racing after placing ninth in last year’s championship, before the collapse of the squad early in the year left him in the cold.
