Lowes’ MotoGP experience already helping WSBK setup

Britain’s Alex Lowes flew in a swanky private jet straight from his MotoGP debut at Silverstone to a World Superbike test at Magny-Cours and even the small number of laps he did at the Northamptonshire track are showing benefits on the Pata Yamaha R1.

Lowes put in 30 laps at the French circuit before rain put paid to any meaningful work but said this afternoon he was able to give his data engineer more detailed feedback as he now has something to compare the performance of the R1 against even after making the switch back to his usual discipline so quickly.

“It was a million times easier than I thought. I was back on the Superbike on Monday, really enjoyed it and what I learned on the MotoGP bike transferred on to the Superbike, which is something I am happy about. Davide my electronics guy was fantastic, we sat down and he asking me where the M1 is better, where we can improve, which is good,” said Lowes, speaking at Misano this afternoon.


“There are a lot of areas where I can give information about how good things can be because now I have ridden a couple of bikes in different forms, so I felt like I was able to give a lot of accurate feedback. It’s difficult to relate a feeling, but when I have something to compare it to, it makes it easier.”
