Relentless Suzuki's Ian Lowry is banking on some extra top-end horsepower for this weekend's Croft British Superbike round in order to try and achieve his podium potential.
The young Irishman, who is still in his rookie year, got his best finish of the season at Cadwell park's race one when he was fourth, fractions of a second behind Stuart Easton and James Ellison.
"I rode well in the first race at Cadwell but just couldn't find the tenth of a second I needed to get close enough to take a podium spot, but we were there and I was pleased," said Lowry, speaking to bikesportnews.com this afternoon.
"I burned the clutch on the line in race two and went backwards, then I just couldn't get past Walker to run even though I was running much faster lap times.
"We're going to increase the top-end horsepower for this weekend so I have got more to overtake with on the straight and, hopefully, finish was well as I did at Cadwell, if not better."
