British youngster Sam Lowes grabbed his first FIM Superstock 600 points at Monza this weekend, taking a well-deserved 13th place away from the high-speed Italian track.
He started from near the back of the grid and managed to fight his way through to take his first point-scoring ride of the season. He said: ""I'm pretty happy with my first points although I'm not totally satisfied about my race. I was better compared to qualifying but I've never been comfortable on this track. Anyhow I hope that this race could be the first step towards big results."
