Lascorz enjoying Superbike transition

The Spaniard is still in recovery from the injuries sustained in his Silverstone accident, but says he is close to full fitness now.
Joan Lascorz says he is pleased with the transition he is making from Supersport to Superbike machinery as he completed four days of testing with Kawasaki in Malaysia.

The Spaniard makes the step up to Superbikes in 2011 as a reward for his race-winning efforts with the manufacturer in the '600' division, the series he has participated in for several years.

Joining Tom Sykes at the Sepang circuit, though Lascorz freely admitted he is still feeling the effects of his horrific accident at Silverstone back in August – one that left him in hospital for more than a month – he was pleased to be close to his more experienced team-mate.

“It was a very positive test for me. Even though I am not yet 100% recovered in terms of fitness on the racebike, I set good lap times, close to Tom's best. I just need to keep working hard to recover my full strength.

“I learned a lot more things about the Ninja ZX-10R over these days, all good things. I am also happy with the way we are working in the team. I look forward to Portimao now, and riding the bike at another circuit before we go to Australia for the final test and then the first race.”
