Baz has confirmed the team will be back for Brno, no news on a Bradl replacement though.

MotoGP News - MotoGP Brno: Baz says Forward Racing will return in Brno

I've also heard that Leopard racing are chasing the Yamaha supply contract (presumably just for engines) with the intention of having a team for Danny Kent to step up to MotoGP at some point.

Confirmed, they will be back in Brno, with Corti replacing Bradl.

Forward Racing has officially confirmed that it will return to the MotoGP grid next weekend in Brno.

The team has been forced to miss this weekend's Indianapolis round due to financial reasons, following the arrest of team boss Giovanni Cuzari over tax related issues.

Stefan Bradl has left the team to join Aprilia and will be replaced by Claudio Corti, who stood in for the injured German at Sachsenring.

“We are pleased to announce that Forward Racing will get back on track from the Brno Grand Prix scheduled on August 16th on the Czech circuit,” said a team statement.

“Following the arrest and the charges against Giovanni Cuzari, director and owner of Forward Racing, we agreed with IRTA - International Racing Teams Association - not to deploy our riders at the start of the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix on August 9th, in order to gather all the resources and to better organize the upcoming trips. This painful decision was necessary in order to try to ensure our participation to the World Championship until the end of the season.

“Thanks to DORNA and IRTA and some partners and sponsors, who despite the objective concerns, they continued to support us – today we are proud to announce that we will get back on track, in both categories, from the bwin Grand Prix České republiky.

“In MotoGP Loris Baz will ride the Yamaha Forward alongside his new teammate Claudio Corti, who will replace Stefan Bradl. For the Italian rider this is a return in the premier class of motorcycle racing, after the Sachsenring race in July, where he replaced the injured Stefan Bradl. Corti has already been with Forward in 2010 in Moto2 riding a Suter bike and in 2013 in MotoGP with Colin Edwards riding a FTR-Kawasaki.

“In Moto2 we are proud to confirm the Italian duo composed by Simone Corsi and Lorenzo Baldassarri on Kalex.”
