Crash.net is posting an exclusive video diary with Alex Lowes, part of Yamaha's defending Suzuka-winning team, throughout this weekend's 2017 event.

The Englishman was on course to smash the pole position record for the Suzuka 8 Hour event on Saturday until the final sector of his flying lap. Still, Lowes' second fastest time, and team-mate Katsuyuki Nakasuga's quickest lap, was enough to give Yamaha Factory Racing Team its third successive pole position at the prestigious event.
