Sam Lowes aiming to round off the season at Valencia with a strong finish

Sam Lowes keenly awaits the final round of the 2016 Moto2 World Championship scheduled for this weekend at Valencia with the aim to achieve a strong finish in what will be his last appearance with the Team Federal Oil Gresini Moto2 before stepping up to MotoGP.

Lowes, who already won twice on Spanish soil this year – at Jerez and at Aragon – heads to a track where he can make the most of the good references acquired during the tests conducted on the Ricardo Tormo circuit last September.


“The last race of the season is as always a special event and of course the target is to close the year with a good result. This weekend will be a bit sad for me because I will leave a fantastic team, it’s been incredible working with these guys. I’m still happy and proud to move to MotoGP remaining in the Gresini Racing family. After the long trip outside Europe I could finally spend some time at home to train and I feel recharged, relaxed and ready to battle. I can’t wait to get back on track in Valencia, where I’d like to finish the season with a victory”.


“After a negative trip outside Europe we want to finish the season with a target in our mind: Sam is fifth in the Championship and we head to Valencia determined to defend this placement. We started the season with a different target, but too many mistakes didn’t allow us to be consistent enough to fight for the title. We take it as a lesson for the future, aware that the team lacks nothing to excel: we are a top team and in Valencia we want to prove it again”.
