WSBK Imola: Lowes: I’m finding my feet

Fresh from his run to the WSBK podium for the first time in Assen, Voltcom Crescent Suzuki's Alex Lowes is seeking more success at Imola.
Alex Lowes says he is looking forward to experiencing Imola on the Suzuki for the first time after picking up his maiden podium finish in the World Superbike Championship at Assen.

The British rider scythed his way up the order during a wet second race to finish second behind Jonathan Rea, a confidence-boosting result that gives him optimism heading to Imola.

Another new circuit for the defending British Superbike Champion, Lowes is nonetheless expecting his Voltcom Crescent Suzuki to be well-suited to the Italian venue.

“I'm really looking forward to this weekend after the podium last time out. I'm enjoying the Suzuki GSX-R, I feel like I am finding my feet in the series and I think Imola will suit us well.

"Italy is always a great place to race and I can't wait to get out there on Friday and start working hard to achieve the best results possible!”

There are many really fast guys in the WSBK paddock. The series has a deep field where on any given weekend, there can be a fresh face on the podium. However, there are only a hand full of guys who have championship winning pedigree. AL22 is one of those guys. I have no doubt that when Alex gets fully acclimated, he will be a legitimate title contender. Race wins are one thing, championship hardware another. Lowes knows.

I rate the Lowes twins as having the most talent and potential of all the Brits on the world stage. The only thing against them is their age, relatively young though they are. The latest crop of hotshot Spaniards are hitting the GP classes in their teens.
