Magny Cours WSB: Laverty sizzles to second

After confirming that he was heading to MotoGP in 2015 with the Aspar Honda team in 2015, Eugene Laverty (Voltcom Crescent Suzuki) found enough pace on the first day at Magny-Cours to finish second in the combined qualifying sheets, 0.272 seconds behind the ebullient Davide Giugliano (Ducati World Superbike). Championship challengers Sylvain Guintoli (Aprilia Racing) and Jonathan Rea (Pata Honda) ...

Magny Cours WSS: van der Mark on top

After two WSS free practice sessions Michael van der Mark (Pata Honda) headed up the field on his Honda with a 1’41.744, with the surprise appearance of Roberto Tamburini (San Carlo Puccetti Racing Team Kawasaki) second and local French star Lucas Mahias (MG Competition) third on a Yamaha. Florian Marino (Kawasaki Intermoto Ponyexpres) was another local rider on the make ...

Guintoli playing a waiting game, but focused on PATA Honda switch

Aprilia’s number one man in the WSB title standings Sylvain Guintoli, has almost been forgotten in the maelstrom of other Aprilia news. With every passing day it appears less likely there will be an official Aprilia team for him to remain in next year so he has been forced to look at other options. “I have been speaking with almost ...

Rumblings from the Laguna Seca paddock

The silly season started for real at Laguna and looks set to gather pace as WSB enters it’s long eight week summer break. Aprilia man Sylvain Guintoli, both Kawasaki Racing Team Riders and Pata Honda’s duo have all yet to be signed up and current Voltcom Suzuki rider Eugene Laverty may even be brought back into the Aprilia fold if ...

Summer break too far for Lowes

After Laguna Seca has been completed the SBK hoards will head back to Europe, with some of the teams heading to Portimao for a (now increasingly rare) testing opportunity on 21 and 22 July. Some others – Pata Honda and Voltcom Crescent Suzuki among them - will not. For Lowes, after Laguna the summer break is simply too long, especially ...

Guintoli ready to risk more

Sylvain Guintoli knew even before he got to Laguna Seca that he would have to go for it at this race and every other one, as Sykes was in an enviable championship position, so the prospect of Sykes taking more than his 38 points lead into the summer break is hard to bear pre-race. “It is hard enough now,” said ...

Laverty makes radical changes

Eugene Laverty took his Voltcom Crescent Suzuki to a second row start in America but was even more confident he could have done better, but for a less than perfect Superpole. Complaining all year of excessive rear sag when entering corners, so badly that it upsets his bike’s ability to turn, Laverty’s team made a radical rear end set-up change ...

Bryan Staring making progress

In the first free practice at Laguna Seca the name Bryan Staring was well into the top ten positions in a field of 27 riders. Staring admitted that it was only FP1 at that early stage but he put his recent improvements that led to a 17th place in Superpole to good work from rider and team and a return ...

Lowes hits early high

Among a short handful of WSB riders who were taking their first experiences of the Laguna Seca circuit this weekend Alex Lowes (Voltcom Crescent Suzuki) did best of all after one day, in fifth place after first qualifying. He found a lot of similarities to the kind of tracks he learned to ride on, learning well enough to win the ...
