Haslam: Aragon is an interesting one for us

After a mixed weekend at Misano, BMW's Leon Haslam heads to the new Motorland Aragon event hoping for better fortunes.
Leon Haslam believes the introduction of the new Motorland Aragon circuit to the World Superbike Championship calendar will create an interesting spectacle as the season heads into its second-half.

The Briton heads to the Alcaniz venue, which replaces Valencia as the Spanish round on the schedule, having tested there in one of his first outings aboard the BMW S1000RR towards the end of last year.

Since then, Haslam and BMW have enjoyed solid results, even if they have yet to pose a consistent threat for race victories. Nonetheless, while Haslam hasn't tested at Motorland Aragon this year, he believes the new circuit could make things 'quite exciting' for fans.

“Aragón is quite interesting for us. A few of the teams selected it as their test circuit. We tested there once in the winter and did not do too badly. I feel that we have made some progress now with the BMW S 1000 RR, so I am actually looking forward to returning to a circuit where I have done some testing. And on top of that it is a new circuit for everyone, so it is quite exciting to see how it will all pan out.

The circuit is quite technical. In a lot of corners the radius hangs on to you, it is always an issue with grip over there, and on top of that you have some high-speed straights leading into very, very tight corners. It has a mixture of everything and a lot of different elevations. I think it will make for good racing.”

Haslam, who picked up a broken toe in an accident at Misano, is currently fifth in the standings.
