Cape Town - Marc Marquez will swap two wheels for four when he takes
part in a Red Bull test in Austria next month.
The reigning MotoGP champion, who is leading this year's
battle for the title after winning at Le Mans on Sunday, will be joined by his
Honda team-mate Dani Pedrosa and nine-time motocross World Champion Tony
Cairoli for the test.
The two-day outing will take place on the June 5-6 at the
Red Bull Ring.
At present it is not known what car the trio will get to
drive but Autosport speculates that it is likely to be a "V8-powered"
car from 2013 or earlier.
This is not the first time that a MotoGP champ has tried
their hand at Formula 1.
Valentino Rossi tested with Ferrari back in 2006, however,
while he was considering making the switch to four wheels, Marquez is not
thought to be leaning that way.
