Laverty out to put title charge back on track at Assen

'I've put Aragon behind me and I'm thinking only about the remainder of the season. There's no point in dwelling on it' - Eugene Laverty
Factory Aprilia rider Eugene Laverty hopes to banish memories of his double DNF at Aragon as he looks towards the third round of the World Superbike Championship this weekend at Assen.

Laverty achieved his maiden podium finish on the RSV4 at the legendary Dutch circuit last year and is confident he can challenge for his second victory of the campaign after opening his 2013 account at Phillip Island in Australia in February.

The Northern Irishman, however, expects strong opposition from Kawasaki and BMW at Assen and is also wary of the Pata Honda credentials of Jonathan Rea and Leon Haslam.

“I've put Aragon behind me and I'm thinking only about the remainder of the season. There's no point in dwelling on it.

“Assen was the venue of my first podium finish on the Aprilia last year and so I have fond memories of riding the RSV4 around there,” said Laverty.

“I really enjoy the flowing nature of the circuit and it usually makes for close racing.

“We know that the BMWs and Kawasaki of Tom Sykes will be strong but the Honda duo could be up there too”.
