Having endured a difficult rookie season aboard the Tech3 Mistral in Moto2 Danny Kent the French team has today confirmed that the Englishman will leave the team at the end of the season.

Kent, winner of two Moto3 races at the end of last season, had been confirmed as a Tech3 rider as recently as the British Grand Prix last month but in the mean time he has reached an “amicable agreement” with the team to leave after the seaosn closing Valencia Grand Prix.

Marinelarena, who has occasionally raced for Avintia Blusens in Moto2 this year scored the first points of his career last weekend at Aragon.

Kent’s options for 2014 appear limited in Moto2 with the majority of the top rides already confirmed and with Ajo Motorsport having announced Jack Miller and Karel Hanika it is unlikely that a return to the squad would be possible for Kent.
