Alex Lowes says he is looking forward to getting to grips with the Sepang International Circuit this weekend as he looks to maintain the momentum from his Donington Park podium.

The second rostrum finish of his rookie World Superbike Championship season, Lowes has climbed the overall order to ninth position, ahead of more experienced Voltcom Crescent Suzuki team-mate Eugene Laverty.

However, unlike Donington Park, Sepang represents an entirely new challenge for Lowes as WSBK ventured to Malaysia for the first time in more than twenty years.
