Moto2 Americas: Lowes: Victory a realistic target in Austin

'I love the track in Austin and the goal has to be to try to win, which is a realistic target' - Sam Lowes.
Sam Lowes says his maiden victory of 2016 is a realistic prospect in this weekend's third round of the Moto2 World Championship at the Grand Prix of the Americas.

The British rider sealed a fine runner-up finish on the Team Federal Oil Gresini Kalex in Argentina to make up for the disappointment of his ride-through penalty in Qatar, which left him in ninth place after he jumped the start.

Lowes was triumphant in Austin in 2015 and sees no reason why he cannot repeat the feat in Texas on Sunday.

“It was really important to get a good result in Argentina because at the first Grand Prix in Qatar we have been unlucky. I love the track in Austin and the goal has to be to try to win, which is a realistic target,” said Lowes, who is the third in the points table behind Thomas Luthi and Johann Zarco.

“The bike has been good on every track so far, so I can't see why it wouldn't be at Circuit of the Americas. I'm really happy, I feel that we can do a good job and I'm going to Texas to try to win the race starting from where we finished last weekend."

Looks like Sam is the only British rider likely to win Grand Prix at the minute. That was a hard fought 2nd against Zarco in Argentina, and who's to say he wouldn't have won in Qatar without that start line fiasco. I think Sam will win again in Texas, and be a regular winner thereafter.
