Michael Laverty hoping Jerez tweaks carry over to Le Mans

Michael Laverty is hoping some major set-up tweaks to his British-built PBM chassis will help him fight for a second successive top 15 finish this season in this weekend’s French MotoGP round at the historic Le Mans track. After claiming his first points with a hard fought 13th place in Jerez, Laverty then enjoyed a positive post race test in Spain...

Brilliant

to read these positve comments from Laverty. He and the bespoke PBM frame have been a real pleasant suprise in the CRT class and it will be great to see Laverty challenging further up the field in CRT.

Good luck to them and all the Brits this weekend.

Laverty has impressed

Nice comments above too. On a brand new motorcycle with a myriad of adjustability it's got to take a lot of laps to find a base. Birdy hasn't given Laverty that luxury, yet the man's risen above that. Good luck to them.

A little birdy told me an engine development freeze is imminent in MotoGP. Does this mean Yamaha are bringing out a sleeved down 1985 V-Max Noddy?

You don't seem to be able to grasp the economics of the matter CH987. How much would a brand new, state of the art, motor cost - compared to buying a tarted-up RSV4 from ART? Aprilia have only got Bird and Abrahams as buyers, and this looks likely to be Karel's last year. So who funds ART development from here on in when Aspar's paying next to nothing? Paul Bird.
