Alex Lowes eyes podium return before WorldSBK breaks for summer

Alex Lowes says he is ‘confident’ of taking a positive result into the summer break during this weekend’s eighth round of the 2023 WorldSBK Championship at Most in Czechia.

A crash out of the final race of the weekend last time out at Imola proved a sour end to an otherwise solid event for the Briton, though he remains poised to head into the six-week summer hiatus comfortably inside the overall top ten.

Before that though, Lowes heads to the fast, flat Most circuit bidding to improve on the single podium he achieved this season back during Round 2 in Indonesia.


“I am really looking forward to this one, which is the last round until September,” he said. “We had a hot weekend at Imola last time out but I felt that I rode really well.

“Considering the circumstances - losing the best lap in qualifying and then crashing in the final race, which was held in pretty extreme conditions - I felt I was riding the bike well. 

“I was quite confident so I will take that confidence into Most. Last year I was quite ill during race weekend and didn’t get to finish it. I am also looking forward to getting back to Most as I quite like it. 

There are lots of changes of direction and some pretty fast corners as well. It’s not the easiest track but we will work hard on Friday to get a good set-up. 

“Our speed has been quite good all year, it is just our pace on used tyres that we need to work on. 

“I am feeling good and looking forward to getting back with the team and trying to challenge for the podiums before we go into the summer break.”
