Haslam targets home victory at Silverstone

Britain's leading representative in the World Superbike Championship targets a return to winning ways at Silverstone
Leon Haslam is turning his attentions to scoring as many race wins as possible during the closing stages of the 2010 World Superbike season, starting with his home event at Silverstone.

The Suzuki Alstare rider has seen his hopes of clinching the 2010 title fall by the wayside in recent weeks after a disappointing run of form at Misano and Brno, but he is determined not to give up on tasting the winner's champagne again this season.

One of the main attractions at this weekend's Silverstone event, Haslam is looking forward to performing in front of his home crowd and is hoping he can get back to winning ways in the process.

“We've had a rough time of it of late but it's not through the lack of effort from the team and myself,” he said. “We were unfortunate at Misano and Brno and now, with four rounds remaining, it's time to try and rectify that.

“I'm focused on race wins now and we've already achieved that this year – on very different circuit and on three continents so I'm certain we can find all the ingredients again to secure more wins between now and the end of the championship, hopefully starting on Sunday.

“Silverstone is a new circuit for everyone but I really liked the old circuit and much of that is incorporated in the new layout. Of course, I'd like to get two wins but I'd also like as many of the British riders as possible to then get between myself and Max Biaggi!”

Haslam is 68 points behind Biaggi in the overall standings.

I have done a lap. No, a lap and a half. That's all I have been allowed to do and that was a PR thing. Iam not allowed to do the race school (Ron Haslam Race School) which is only half the new track. It's been frustrating that dad has been doing the school all year and I have been sitting on the pit wall! It is a new track for everyone. quote from leon
