Tom Sykes is hoping to use his positive experiences at Laguna Seca to 'get the results we deserve' in the United States having lost more ground to his team-mate and World Superbike championship leader Jonathan Rea.

The Kawasaki rider has notched up two victories, a third and a fourth in the four races he's contested at the Californian circuit in World Superbikes and says it is a place he loves returning to since it was re-introduced on to the racing calendar in 2013.

"I have gone well at Laguna, I won the first race the first time I competed there and that is a nice memory," Sykes said. We have a decent track record there, which gives me something extra to aim for. It is a great circuit, tight and technical."

"We have had a little bit of back luck dealt to us in the last couple of races so it would be nice to try and get over that and really start to get the results we deserve," he added. "I have been speaking with my crew chief Marcel [Duinker] and we have some ideas in the pipeline.

"We need to try a couple more things on the bike and hopefully we can make some more progress."
