Lowes battles through pain barrier for top ten

9 June 2014

Alex Lowes says he learnt something from his performance in the second race at Sepang after 'digging deep' for a top ten finish whilst carrying an injury from his first race accident.

Lowes was the innocent party in a collision that started between Loris Baz and Tom Sykes, the latter careering into the Suzuki on his outside and taking both out of the race.

A 'big impact' that very nearly forced Lowes to skip the second race, he nonetheless battled on and even recovered some ground late on to finish in ninth place.

“There's not much I can say about race one, but I definitely learnt something in race two. I really didn't feel good at all, it was a big impact in the race one crash, but I dug deep and it was a good experience overall on a new circuit.

“It is a great track here at Sepang and I wish I could have done better, but now I'm really looking forward to Misano and seeing how close we can get to the front.”
