Lowes Primed To Make Up For Austrian Disappointment At Brno

The fast and flowing Brno circuit, in the Czech Republic, is going to host this weekend the eleventh round of the 2016 Moto2 World Championship: fresh from the disappointing race in Austria, Sam Lowes and the Team Federal Oil Gresini Moto2 are determined to return to fight for the top positions on a track that on paper looks favorable.

Fifth placed in last year’s edition, Lowes will be back on his Kalex machine for the first Free Practice Friday, August 19 at 10.55 to begin to prepare for the 20-lap race to be held Sunday, August 21 at 12.20.

“In Austria we faced a very particular track without testing there before and during the race weekend we have been struggling in particular in a specific sector of the circuit, the T2. Now the Championship battle is very complicated, but we don’t want to think about it: from now on we will try to focus race by race. I like the track at Brno and the goal will be to have fun and enjoying riding my bike again. I think that the track, fast and really wide, will help us: we want to return competitive and we have two very good opportunities to do so, Brno and Silverstone, two circuits that I really like. We want to forget Austria and arrive in the Czech Republic with confidence”.

“We want to leave Austria’s disappointment behind our shoulders. Luckily this weekend we will have already the opportunity to come back on a track that on the paper suits Sam’s riding style. I have confidence both in the rider and in the team and I know that we can quickly get back on top: we must stay focused looking for a solution that will allow us to regain the competitiveness that has always distinguished us during the season”.
