Laverty scores another WSBK front row

Eugene Laverty gets onto the World Superbike front row once again after another strong showing for Yamaha at Miller Motorsports Park.
Eugene Laverty will start from the front row of the World Superbike grid for the third round in succession after yet again displaying his single lap prowess, this time at a damp Miller Motorsports Park.

The Irishman recovered from a fairly modest performance in the similarly wet Q2 and FP2 session to cruise into the Superpole shootout before grabbing fourth position alongside his Yamaha team-mate Marco Melandri.

Coming after his remarkable double victory at Monza, Laverty was pleased to get onto the front row and is now targeting further podiums from that position.

“I'm quite content with the day. The morning's qualifying in the wet conditions didn't go so well, I was quite low down in the standings and I didn't have the right feeling with the bike. We worked hard all afternoon and continued to move in the right direction.

“I'm confident that we'll be up there fighting for the podium in both wet and dry race conditions. I'm on the front row which is great and it's important to get away in the long run into the first corner. Hopefully I can catch Checa, but it would be nice to be on the podium.”

gotta say i'm still buzzing from what i saw in Monza. Cant wait to see him in motogp in the hopefully not too distant future. Should replace edwards...no disrespect to colin but where have the performances been recently to warrant his place amongst the elite, especially when there are so many talented and hungry youger guys coming up...? He should dowhat melandri's done and step down a notch so he can start battling for podiums (wet-races notwithstanding)
