WorldSBK Portimao: Lowes keen to continue momentum

Kawasaki new-boy Alex Lowes is keen to contine the forward momentum gained over the Jerez WorldSBK weekend after learning a lot about the ZX-10R's hot-weather behaviour.

Although temperatures are expected to be a little cooler at Portimao this weekend with a high of 30°C on Sunday, Lowes believes what he learned in Spain about altering himself to fit the bike more will be beneficial.

“I am looking forward to Portimao after not the easiest weekend in Jerez but I learned a lot about the bike," said Lowes.


"I had not had too much experience of the Kawasaki in the heat so the past weekend was about understanding it and learning the best way to ride the bike and adapt my style to the bike rather than chasing a setting.

"We made some good steps and hopefully that will put us in a good position at Portimao. It is not the easiest track but it is one I really enjoy.

"I think that the Kawasaki is going to work well there. I am looking forward to trying it for the first time on the ZX-10RR.

"I am happy we have had only had a few days until we get back out, because we were building momentum over the weekend in Jerez. We can just focus on starting on Friday morning and building from there. It is going to be good fun.”
