Lowes eyes maiden win on home soil

Sam Lowes will target his first World Supersport Championship victory in front of his home fans at Silverstone this weekend.
Sam Lowes feels this is the weekend he will break his duck in the World Supersport Championship having already come close on several occasions this season.

The youngster has finished on the podium three times this season, with a best finish of second just behind Chaz Davies at Motorland Aragon, but while he has established himself to be a consistent front runner, he is yet to scale the rostrum.

Nonetheless, Lowes, who currently sits sixth in the WSS standings, has high hopes for his home Silverstone round, where he scored a top ten finish as a wild-card for GNS Honda last season.

"I just can't wait to get racing, I really enjoyed Donington earlier this year and the huge amount of support we received,” the Parkalgar Honda rider said. “I love Silverstone, I raced there twice last year and won the race and British Supersport Championship at the circuit, it is a good one for me. I know the track and what to do straight away and should be on the pace to go all out for victory."

Lowes is just 12 points off second place man Broc Parkes in the overall WSS standings.
