Alex Lowes says he is eager to reward the Voltcom Crescent Suzuki team with a strong result after securing his first-ever World Superbike Championship front row in Thailand.

The Englishman has been amongst the pace setters at the Chang International Circuit throughout the weekend and though Lowes himself says his fastest lap wasn't ideal, it was still good enough to secure him third on the grid.

A maiden front row start for the youngster in his second season of World Superbike racing, Lowes is now keen to turn it around into a similarly positive race result.

"I'm happy with today! It's my first time on the front row with the Suzuki, the boys have done a good job and we keep making little steps forward, not too much but we're going in the right direction! I'm enjoying it and hopefully I can repay the lads tomorrow with a decent result because they've all worked very hard over the winter, and last year.

"Thanks to the whole team, the boys on the other side of the garage too because they've helped me out as well, so cheers! To be fair the lap wasn't my best, I could've gone quicker and I just didn't quite put it together so that was a shame, but all that matters is that we are on the front row, we've got a chance tomorrow and I can't wait."
