MotoGP » Broc Parkes
Broc Parkes will join Michael Laverty in the PBM MotoGP team for the 2014 season.
Parkes, 31, is a double title runner-up in World Supersport and has also spent several seasons in WSBK, including one year (2009) with the then PBM Kawasaki team.
The only Australian on the 2014 MotoGP grid, Parkes has made one previous GP appearance - as a 125cc wild-card in 1999 - before starting his world championship career in 2001.
Parkes and Laverty will race the Aprilia-powered PBM chassis in the new Open class.
