Alex Lowes says he can head into the winter off-season feeling 'positive and stress-free' after a strong week of World Superbike testing in Jerez.

Though his four days with the Voltcom Crescent Suzuki team were hampered by intermittent showers, Lowes would come away from the test with the fastest lap overall, his time of 1min 40.730secs quick enough to have placed him fourth on the grid during September's WSBK event in Spain.

Happy to have begun his preparations for 2015 on a strong note, though Lowes was disappointed not to have completed his full test schedule, he is feeling relaxed heading into the winter break.

"It's been a good week, I'm happy to finish the year feeling confident and with a renewed optimism about the 2015 bike. It's slightly frustrating that we didn't get more of an opportunity to test everything we had planned but I'm happy with the overall performance.

"I'm feeling positive and stress-free heading into the winter which is always important. Thanks to the Voltcom Crescent Suzuki team for this year, we will try to improve next year and come back strong in pre-season testing in January."

Lowes scored two podiums in his maiden WSBK season en route to 11th overall.
