Good for Yonny he truly deserves this ride, having shown flashes of potential and spectacular riding on his freshman season, he can now look forward to ride an even more stable bike he can build up on. Hopefully he stays healthy and the bike allows him to fight for Top CRT honours. I still have to admit that I was totally hoping that Ellison kept his ride and that him and Hernandez could make a team more like the one of RDP and PS, Good luck to Ellison and Laverty.

No doubt when M Lav is struggling at the rear of the field, Paul Bird will be shouting his mouth off asking why he isn't beating Espargaro and DePuniet.
Ellison is better off away from that fool.

That means bsb factory hondas will have a vacant seat.
Bridewell or lowes anyone? Both would do better than m laverty or the likeable kirkham.

I would have retained Ellison or Vermulen, Maxim Berger someone like that. I have nothing against him but he is hardly a consistent top performer in BSB

i really think m Lav is being underestimated by a few here.he has had bad luck and machine problems this year,that prevented him showing his true potential.i think hes naturally and smooth,which might suit the moto gp tracks a lot better.

Yonny Hernandez and Michael Laverty on dueling, but differing, Aprilia-powered bikes. The Columbian Hernandez will continue PBM's efforts on the Aprilia ART racing package, while the British Laverty will campaign a British built CRT bike that uses an RSV4 motor.

Laverty's chassis is reportedly being made by GPMS Technology, and the project is being headed by Phil Borley. Part of the motivation for the split garage is Paul Bird's commitment to have a British team fielding a British bike with a British rider
