PBM's James Ellison scored for the third event in a row during Sunday's German MotoGP at Sachsenring.

Ellison impressed during Friday's wet free practice session to set the fastest CRT time, but couldn't maintain that pace when it dried out.

The Englishman rode from 19th to 15th in the grand prix, finishing ahead of three other CRTs and as the final rider on the lead lap.

"To come away with another championship point and one place higher in the table is a positive and so is the information we have gathered on the longer chassis we have been testing for the last three races," said Ellison.

But the top CRT, of fellow Aprilia ART rider Randy de Puniet, was almost 40-seconds ahead. Ellison hopes to run the same swing-arm as the likes of the Aspar riders soon.

"The other ARTs have been running a stiffer swing-arm for the last three races which improves the rear grip so I'm hoping when we get this we can close the gap back up to the leaders," he said.

"The team as usual worked their bits off so big thanks to them for staying positive and getting behind me."
