PBMUK to delay debut of CRT PBM-01 machine until Sepang 2 test

Written By: -

According to the official MotoGP website PBMUK has decided to delay the debut of their own PBM-01 CRT machine (GPMS/Aprilia) until the Sepang 2 tests that take place from February 26th to the 28th.

The machine apparently was ready for shipment for the first test at the Malaysian circuit (February 5-7), but the team decided to postpone the debut until the bike was at its ‘highest standard’. Therefore, Michael Laverty will get his first taste of the MotoGP class without the bike he’s expected to use this season, instead he’ll be using team mate Yonny Hernandez’s full ART machine spare in order to learn the intricacies of the Bridgestone tires, carbon brakes and Aprilia engine, however his pit crew will have to wait to the second test to start dialling in the Magneti Marelli spec ECU that his CRT bike will be equipped with.
