2013 MotoGP entry list announced, Laverty at PBM

28 November 2012

The provisional entry list for the 2013 MotoGP season names Michael Laverty and Yonny Hernandez as riding for the Paul Bird Motorsport team.

2012 BSB race winner Laverty is listed as competing on a 'PBM' bike with Hernandez, who raced for Avintia this year, on an ART Aprilia, as used by former rider James Ellison.
