Sam Lowes insists he can focus on fighting for victory in the final three rounds of the 2012 World Supersport Championship having fallen behind Kenan Sofuoglu last time out in Russia.
The Bogdanka PTR Honda rider was Sofuoglu's biggest title rival heading to the Moscow Raceway, but a costly ride-thru penalty for a jump start left him down in 12th place at the chequered flag, casting him 35 points adrift with three races remaining.
Nonetheless, Lowes says he is in 'good spirits' heading to the Nurburgring, insisting the pressure is squarely on two-time champion Sofuoglu.
"I'm really looking forward to the last three races. The pressure is on Kenan, it's not on me, so I can just focus on going out there and fighting to win the last three races and then we'll see what happens. The last three tracks I like and I'm good at so I'm in good spirits.
“Nurburgring is a mega circuit and reminds me of some of the big, fast British tracks, so I feel really good at it and enjoy riding it. The forecast for the weekend is good and I'm looking forward to this race more than any other this year, so I can't wait to get there and go out on track."
