Laverty keeps finger in MotoGP pie | MotoGP | Sport

Eugene Laverty’s departure from MotoGP to World Superbikes might not mean we never see the Ulsterman in MotoGP again.

            After an impressively consistent season, Laverty quit the Aspar team after learning that new signing Alvaro Bautista would get the single factory Ducati next year, and he would again be stuck with a hand-me-down.

            His new employers are Aprilia, and racing chief Romano Albesiano revealed at Valencia that “we agreed with him to have a (MotoGP) testing contract, and to be first choice as reserve rider.”
