Alex Lowes says he cannot wait to get going again on his Voltcom Crescent Suzuki as the World Superbike Championship resumes from its prolonged summer break at Jerez.

After a hiatus of just under two months, only three rounds of the 2015 season remain beginning with the Spanish event, with Lowes eager to produce a final flourish on the GSX-R1000 in what has been a tough season for the second-year racer.

Currently ninth in the standings, Lowes is embroiled in a battle for seventh, with just 19 points splitting the riders classified seventh to 11th - Michael van der Mark, the absent Davide Giugliano, Lowes, Matteo Baiocco and Leandro Mercado.

"I can't wait to get back on my GSX-R and ride again at Jerez," Lowes, who celebrated his 25th birthday on Monday, said. "For me the summer break is too long, especially with the ban on testing, so I am eager to get to Spain and start building on the progress made over the last few races.

"We have been solid recently and I hope to keep improving for the rest of the year. I have three weekends to do the best I can possibly do, and that is what I'm aiming for now!

"The track at Jerez is one we get to ride a lot with all the testing that goes on there! I really enjoy the layout, it has some great sweeping corners and a couple of hard-braking areas. The faster corners are better for me and the Suzuki but I will be working harder on getting in and out of the slower corners this year to make us more competitive."
