WSBK Donington: Laverty well placed with Donington front row

Eugene Laverty sets his sights on a fourth World Superbike win of the season from the front row at Donington Park.
Eugene Laverty is optimistic he can strive for a fourth World Superbike Championship win of the season at Donington Park after qualifying on the front row.

Joining Tom Sykes and Aprilia team-mate Sylvain Guintoli on a familiar front row, though Laverty would finish seven tenths adrift of the pole sitter, he was pleased to get a front row around a circuit that Aprilia has never won at.

Indeed, Laverty believes he has the consistent race pace to challenge for a win that could get him on terms with series leader Guintoli.

“I'm really happy to be here on the front row because around this circuit there are at least five fast riders with a similar race pace. So it's very important to start from the front row, especially since the characteristics of this track make overtaking quite difficult.

“I'm also happy to keep up my Superpole streak. It's a great sign of consistency and it is a good indicator of the shape my RSV4 and I are in.”

What are you talking about dare to live? Dunno if he can be a winner. Well you should know that he can be a winner. He has the most amount of race wins so far this season!

looey, I'm presuming this person is referring to the fact that Donington has been something of a bogey track for Eugene in the past. Don't agree with the train of thought that he can't win today though, he's on the front row with a very fast motorcycle and has been riding superbly this year. The reason we watch WSB races is that any of the top guys have a chance to win, Mr. Laverty is one of those top guys.
