Laverty eager to get back on track

"It should be an ideal place to pick up where I left off in the last race" - Eugene Laverty.
Fresh from his debut double victory at Monza, World Superbike rookie Eugene Laverty is looking to continue the momentum at Miller Motorsports Park in the USA this weekend.

The Yamaha rider jumped up to fifth in the standings after his perfect Monza results and is now just four points behind Castrol Honda's Jonathan Rea.

“I am really looking forward to the weekend at Miller Motorsports Park especially after my double win in Monza," said Laverty. "It's probably one of the tracks where I have performed best in the past so it should be an ideal place to pick up where I left off in the last race, just less than 3 weeks ago!

"I have always been immediately quite fast in Miller on the Supersport bike and hopefully I will be again this year on my R1. The bike is working very well, so I'm feeling pretty confident that I can have a good weekend.”

Laverty's crew chief Frankie Carchedi will be aiming to give his rider a consistent bike, with good edge grip performance.

"Miller is a track which has different characters; the first part is fast and flowing and the second more twisty and technical. It is very important to maintain edge grip for the duration of the race," said Carchedi. "The past years races show that consistent lap times are rewarded come the end of the race.

"We will start one bike with the same set-up as Monza race and Aragon test which has been our base set up this year. With the second bike we will try a different front end set-up to gain more contact in change of direction. Our target is to keep the momentum we have gained in the last few races and gain further valuable points in the championship."

Lav is a class act and anyone who doesnt think he is a title contender is blind... Checa will be hard beat in Miller but he is no more consistant than the rest of them....
