Alex Barros To Return To MotoGP?

More rumors of returnees, today, as "European sources" are being quoted as saying that Alex Barros could return to MotoGP. His name is being linked to a ride with Pramac d'Antin for 2007. D'Antin have been permanent backmarkers this season, running satellite Ducatis on Dunlop tires, but they could be a surprise package next year, running machinery which will be very close to the works Ducatis, and using the same competitive Bridgestone tires. Barros had a mixed season in World Superbikes this year on the Klaffi Honda, invariably getting off to a terrible start, but following it up with a very strong chase through the pack, finally getting a win at Imola. He has also been linked to several teams in World Superbikes, but the problem has always been finding sponsorship.

Soup has the scoop.
