Alex Lowes rejoins the works Kawasaki WorldSBK team at Catalunya tomorrow and will work on small adjustments to his riding style over the two-day test.

Lowes has only a couple of hours’ experience at the Barcelona track thanks to a rain-hit session at the end of last year, but is looking forward to getting more laps under his belt.

“When we tested at Montmeló in January we didn’t have very good weather so although I have some knowledge of the track I didn’t fully get to get my teeth into it,” said Lowes.

Now I have a better understanding of the bike it’s going to be great to ride the circuit in full-on mode because my first impressions of Montmeló were really good.

“I need to work on a couple of things with my riding that my crew chief Marcel and I identified from the recent Misano test. We’re also looking to improve the rear of the bike, from a set up point of view.

“Although I’ve been with the team eight months or so now I am still learning the ZX-10RR. I really enjoying that process so I can’t wait to get back out.”
