Tough weekend for Lowry

“Every track we go to we are starting from scratch” – Ian Lowry.
Arriving at Oulton Park fresh from a stunning debut win at Thruxton and second in the BSB standings, Ian Lowry left the Cheshire circuit with a best finish of 13th from the three races.

The Padgetts Honda rider retired from race one with a technical problem, finished out of the points in 21st with wet tyres on a drying race two surface. That also meant a 23rd place start for race three, from which Lowry salvaged the 13th place.

As a result, Lowry has now dropped to fifth in the BSB championship.

"It has been a very disappointing weekend for me and the Padgetts team, we never seemed to be able to get into a good rhythm,” he said. “What everyone has to remember is that this is the first year in Superbikes for Padgetts, every other team on the grid have some sort of set-up and data logging from previous years so they have a base to work from.

“Every track we go to we are starting from scratch and some are going to be good and some not so good, Thruxton was good, Oulton was not so good. It is a long season and it's a learning curve for all of us in the team we have to take the positives and work on the negatives for next time.

“I know I have to try and keep getting consistent points and it's important to be into the top six for the final showdown, hopefully we can get things sorted for Snetterton at the end of the month.”
