The final round of the MotoGP World Championship takes place at Valencia this weekend with the PBM MotoGP Team looking to end the season in style after a run of bad luck has meant a string of disappointing results for the Penrith based squad.
Ulsterman Michael Laverty will once again be on board the Rapid Solicitors and Silkolene sponsored Aprilia ART which he has campaigned in recent rounds whereas Australian Damian Cudlin will continue on the Rapid Solicitors and Silkolene sponsored PBM machine once again.
Both riders suffered varying degrees of misfortune at the three flyaway races recently and are looking forward to returning to Europe in the hope of ending the season in positive fashion for MotoGP's only British team.
Meanwhile, team owner Paul Bird has recently met with senior personnel from a major manufacturer and is planning further negotiations in Spain this weekend with a view to confirming his team's MotoGP plans for 2014 imminently.
Paul Bird, Team Owner: "We've had a disappointing season and our luck in recent rounds has certainly compounded that so I'm hoping we can turn things around for the final race of the season. When we entered MotoGP, we didn't underestimate the challenge and we are fully aware of what it takes to compete in this series so we are now ready to step up a level. Valencia is still a very important race for us as we are finalising plans for next season and we are hoping to make a very exciting announcement regarding our participation in MotoGP next season shortly."
The final round of the MotoGP World Championship takes place at Valencia on November 10th. For more information, please visit the team's website www.pbmuk.net and www.motogp.com.
