Saturday's race was held in dry but cool conditions and both riders made good starts with Hernandez ending lap one in 19th place, two places ahead of Laverty and whereas Laverty held station for the first few laps, Hernandez battled his way up to 17th at one point in a five rider tussle for the lower leaderboard placings.

By half distance, Hernandez was in 18th with Laverty up to 20th and that's where they remained until the latter stages before dropping to 19th and 22nd and less than a second apart at the end of the epic 26-lap race around the twisty Dutch track.

With only one retirement out of the 24 starters and none from any of the leading prototype or CRT riders, it meant that neither rider improved their position in the championship but it was vital progress for Britain's only MotoGP team as they finished on the lead lap in the race won by Valentino Rossi.

Hernandez still occupies 19th overall in the MotoGP World Championship standings with Laverty maintaining his 21st in his debut season. In the Claiming Rules Teams (CRT) class, Hernandez holds sixth with Laverty in eighth whereas PBM occupy eighth in the Constructors Championship in their debut season with their brand new British-built machine

Round eight of the MotoGP World Championship takes place at Sachsenring on Sunday 14th July. For more information, please visit the team's brand new website www.pbmuk.net and www.motogp.com
