Catalunya WorldSBK test: Corner-exit the focus for Lowes

Kawasaki's Alex Lowes will focus on corner-exit strategies over two days at the Barcelona WorldSBK test in only his second outing of 2021 on the new ZX-10RR.

Lowes’ positive Jerez test earlier this month was proof he had recuperated well ahead of what will be the first main competitive test at the start of his second season as an official Kawasaki rider. Already a race winner on the previous ZX-10RR, Lowes will also confirm his base settings for 2021.

“This is going to be a good opportunity to go out and test again after blowing the cobwebs off at Jerez recently. We have two or three important things to try, especially on corner exit," said Lowes.


"We are looking to finalise our base setting for the year so that is the priority at this Montmelo test. Obviously we will also continue development of the new Ninja ZX-10RR, not only based on what we did in the recent test but also what we did in November last year. It is going to be great to get back out there with all our competitors.

"Montmelo is a track that I did not go well on last year so this is going to be a great opportunity to test and improve on that. It is also a track that I really enjoy, even though I do not have that much experience on it.

"Hopefully we will have good weather to get back to work. It is going to be great to be in our new colours. I really like the 2021 graphics for the KRT and Kawasaki racing project - I think they are great - so I am keen to see how it all looks on track and how it comes out in the pictures.”
