WSS: Lowes to ride Parkalgar Honda at Sunflower

Sam Lowes will make his Parkalgar Honda debut at the Sunflower event this weekend.
Sam Lowes will make his first appearance aboard the Parkalgar Honda he will ride in next season's World Supersport Championship at the Sunflower race meeting in Northern Ireland.

The newly crowned British Supersport Champion will step up to the world stage in 2011 as the replacement for twice WSS runner-up Eugene Laverty, but will embark on his first race outing for the team this weekend at Downpatrick.

He will be joined by James Ellison, the Swan Honda BSB rider making his Parkalgar debut as well.

“The idea is to go to the Sunflower and give initial feedback to the team on the Parkalgar Honda and anything I might need to change about it,” said Lowes, who won the BSS title with GNS Honda.

“That will set us up in good stead for the rest of the winter and when the World Championship testing comes around and should be a good solid start with the team. Saying that, we are going there and I hope to have a winning start with the squad.”

“I'm excited to be riding the Parkalgar Honda,” Ellison added. “The season is over for me and the pressure is off in BSB for results so I can enjoy this ride. The last time I rode a Supersport bike was last year at Parkalgar in a test and I am looking to have a bit of fun and see how I fare in the class – I'm looking forward to it.”

Why do people think that just because Easton is leaving and Ellison might be that Swan Honda are going to disband? just because you lose a couple of riders it dosent mean you lose the team. there are plenty of riders out there that need a ride, e.g. Shane Byrne and James Westmoreland. And that is if Ellison does even leave.

dont worry about this lads,easton rides for pbm at the end of the year anyhow at odd races,the sunflower races invite different riders over and often have to fix up /match up bikes and teams,as riders have no bikes , teams to run here ,relentless also usually give some young guy a run out,think they are rolling out the 600ss bikes for a bsb rider,and pbm like to support this event(which is cool),with lowery, and maybe some one else riding the wsbk kwacks,be good to see ellison/lowes round bishopscourt,with the wss hondas,its a relaxed meeting ,but gets very competitive,among the top egos , lol,
