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 ...

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.

Riders Mystified By Laguna Schedule
