Aims. We present an unbiased orbit solution and mass determination of the components of the eclipsing binary PG1336−018 as a critical test for the formation scenarios of subdwarf B stars.
Methods. We obtained high-resolution time series VLT/UVES spectra and high-speed multicolour VLT/ULTRACAM photometric
observations of PG1336−018, a rapidly pulsating subdwarf B star in a short period eclipsing binary.
Results. Combining the radial velocity curve obtained from the VLT/UVES spectra with the VLT/ULTRACAM multicolour
lightcurves, we determined numerical orbital solutions for this eclipsing binary. Due to the large number of free parameters and their strong correlations, no unique solution could be found, only families of solutions. We present three solutions of equal statistical
significance, two of which are compatible with the primary having gone through a core He-flash and a common-envelope phase described by the α-formalism. These two models have an sdB primary of 0.466 M and 0.389 M, respectively. Finally, we report the detection of the Rossiter-McLaughlin effect for PG1336−018.
