BSB Knochill: Lowes salvages points after race one fall

'It is never nice to drop back in the standings, but I used my head as points are more important than having another crash' - Alex Lowes
Alex Lowes settled for a solid points finish in race two at Knockhill after the Samsung Honda rider lost ground in the MCE British Superbike Championship after a first race fall at Knockhill.

Lowes high-sided from his Fireblade at the hairpin at the Scottish circuit but the Lincolnshire rider regrouped to finish fourth in the second race.

“In the first race I was going good, but was struggling in the last sector compared to [Shane] Byrne and [Josh] Brookes and the crash was just unlucky,” he said.

“We made some changes for the second race but they didn't work as well as we had hoped, but if you can't be third you may as well be fourth because points are important for the championship, especially here at a circuit where I have struggled in the past.

“It is never nice to drop back in the standings, but I used my head as points are more important than having another crash.”
