125cc team DeGraaf Grand Prix presented their 2008 lineup at Lelystad Airport in Holland on Wednesday afternoon, with their three lower cylinder category competitors all in attendance ahead of next week's Official Test duties in Jerez.

British rider Danny Webb is the only rider continuing within the team structure from 2007, and will this year be joined by American newcomer Stevie Bonsey -for his sophomore year in the class- and Holland's own Hugo van den Berg. The team is receiving an upgrade in Aprilia material this season for their teenage riders, under the guidance of ex-Grand Prix rider Jarno Janssen and former Dutch TT winner Hans Spaan.

In addition to running the team in the 125cc World Championship, this year the DeGraaf Technish Personeel-Exact Software-Molenaar combination will also be setting up a ‘GP Talent Project' for riders to challenge themselves in the Spanish Championship on Honda machinery. The first round of the selection process took place last month under the watchful eyes of Spaan and ex-rider Jurgen van den Goorbergh.
