Britain’s Alex Lowes is taking some time to evaluate his performance at the Phillip Island WorldSBK round and even though he won race two, he wants to makes some changes.
The Kawasaki man moved away from Yamaha this season and despite only having a small amount of dry track time managed to fend off team-mate and five-time champion Jonathan Rea in the Sunday feature event.
“There are a few things with my riding that I want to improve that I’ll refresh my memory for when it’s closer to the time. If you start watching now, when we’ve got weeks of not going out. You’d be a bit over it by the end of that,” said Lowes.
With the coronavirus calling a halt to all track action, Lowes has time to evaluate what his 2020 might look like.
“I’m just trying to use it as an opportunity to not look at the negative side or look at it selfishly, like ‘we’re victims because we can’t do anything and we want to be racing’. There’s a lot of people in the same situation, so I’m determined to be positive and make sure I’m prepared for when we start racing again, but also to set a good example and do the right thing.
“I’m just trying to be as positive as I can, listen to the guidelines from the experts, and trying to stay healthy and look after family and friends.
“That’s the most important thing right now. We don’t know how long it’s going to last for, so it’s just a case of sitting tight and waiting until we’ve got some more news.”
