WSS: Parkalgar Honda signs Lowes for 2011

Parkalgar Honda confirms its World Supersport rider line-up for 2011 with Sam Lowes joining Miguel Praia.
British Supersport Champion Sam Lowes will graduate to the World Supersport Championship in 2011 after penning a deal with title contenders Parkalgar Honda.

The 20-year-old sealed the British title for GNS Honda with one round remaining at Silverstone last weekend and has been rewarded for his efforts with a chance to replace World Superbike-bound Eugene Laverty at Parkalgar Honda.

It is an opportunity Lowes is eager to make the most of, the youngster targeting race wins and maybe the title in his first season.

“It is a dream come true for me that I will be riding for Parkalgar Honda in the 2011 World Supersport Championship," he said. "This is one of the best teams in the world and is right at the front of the races week in and out.

“I am under no illusions how difficult the step will be but with Parkalgar Honda I have a team that knows what to do and how to win. I can't wait to get racing with the team and fitted to the bike.

"Thank you to Parkalgar Honda for having the faith in me, I will do all I can to repay that with race wins and a Championship challenge.”

It won't be the first time Lowes has competed at World Supersport level having taken in selected rounds of the 2009 series with Echo CRS Honda, while he also scored a top ten finish for the GNS team as a wild-card at Silverstone back in August.

Lowes will be joined in the team by the already-confirmed Miguel Praia.

Sam rode brilliantly this year. Knockhill was a stunningly controlled precision exhibition of bikemanship. Silverstone was fabulous too while all about him lost their way. I wish him every success in worlds, I really think this guy will make GP. The team didn't miss a beat,great tactics, first class mechanics and immaculately turned out machinery. I really hope they continue in the same way next year. Any rider would be fortunate indeed to land such a ride.

YES..YES..YES.. Get in. What a result...!! Sam will have the best bike on the grid, i'm really excited about seeing him next season. He really deserves the chance to show what he can do. I think this is a great bit of business by Simon Buckmaster, fingers crossed there will be a few podiums next year. Let's hope Alex Lowes takes Sam's old ride at GNS.
