Yamaha’s Alex Lowes is hoping to bounce back from his Jerez WorldSBK dramas with some podium positions at Misano this weekend and claw back some of the points lost to team-mate Michael van der Mark.
Lowes was nerfed off by Jonathan Rea in the opening Spanish race, crashed in the sprint race and then fell for a third time in the second big race but remounted for 14th and two points.
“After a good test in Misano a few weeks ago, and with speed we showed in Jerez, I’m looking forward to getting back on track this weekend,” said Lowes.
We didn’t get the results we were hoping for in Jerez, but rather than going into Misano looking to make amends, I’m going to stick to the working process with my guys that has worked so well for us all year.
“We showed we had the pace to challenge for the podium in Jerez, so we know we can do the same this weekend in Misano.
“It’s always a great atmosphere when you race in Italy and, unlike the test, this weekend looks like it’s going to be a scorcher.”
