Looks 'sticky.' Hope we'll see him near the front. I didn't think he'd perform so well on the Speed Up. They're running a carbon swing arm. I suppose it is their own bespoke chassis but can't find any info on it. Why aren't any other teams using it?

i have to say i didn't think too much of these two brothers, but to be fair despite the other lows over exuberance he still had a lot of pace and his brothers lap times also look very very good. looks like we have a couple of new brits on the block...

Qmmf are the only other team using the speed up chassis but I don't know how similar they are. Ant west is very experienced but still can't match the pace of lowes, if that's a benchmark to go by??

I really hope Sam does well....mostly to put the old "SSP and WSBK riders" don't/cannot do well in GPs... Crutchlow and Spies should have put that to rest but some people are still on it. Ben was rookie of the year 2010 and won a GP 2011 but his last 2 years have put that under the radar.. Cal has done well despite a struggling rookie year....Ducati certainly sees potential.. and Tech 3 wanted him to stay...

So yea...I want this lad (Sam) to do well and show that if its on 2 wheels it can be ridden by any good rider not just those coming up in GPs.
