Aprilia Eugene Laverty has expressed his anger at an electronics problem, which has more than likely cost him a hatful of World Superbike points over the last three rounds, which has only just been discovered by his Noale team.

The Antrim rider has been in the doldrums for the past three rounds, only managing to score some top six results but a fault has been found with the RSV4’s electronic setup and the Irishman says it has now been fixed so he should be all systems go.

“I’m entering Aragon in a positive frame of mind following our successful test at the same circuit last week. We discovered the electronics problem that has hindered us over the past three rounds and so I aim to be back on the podium again as we were in Assen and Monza," said Laverty.

"On one hand I’m angry that this issue has cost us severely in the championship fight but at the same time I’m relieved that at last we’ve fixed the problem. We are only at the halfway point of the season and so there are plenty of races left for me to fight my way back into the top five in the championship."
