Voltcom Crescent Suzuki ‘couldn’t be happier’ with Philip Island test

Crescent Suzuki team boss Paul Denning says he ‘couldn’t be happier’ with his team’s performance at the last WSB test before the 2014 season kicks off, with his all-British team of Eugene Laverty and Alex Lowes finishing off the two-day test in second and third. “The last two days have given us the opportunity to assess where we are against the...

Alex Lowes on board

So He should be happy .the lad is the brightest prospect to come from BSB for a long time and if he were Spanish he would be in Moto gp already ,he will have to ride the wheels off that Suzuki to win races but the lad is capable of it as he proved on the Honda in BSB,I hope he has a safe and outstanding season and Suzuki give him the Moto gp gig for 2015.Too many of these Ex BSB boys stagnate in WSBK but I think he is a bit different as his test already shows ,Cant wait for race day

Geography lesson

"...all-British team of Eugene Laverty and Alex Lowes..." Laverty is Irish...which is not British...the Eurosport commentary team and pundits frequently call him British and it's quite annoying, "three Brits on the podium" and other such nonsense when one of them is Laverty. He's as British as Davide Giugliano. I'm sure he'll be Irish again when he falls off!!

The Irish/British thing raises it's head again.   The Laverty brothers were born in Toome or Toombridge in Northern Ireland which is part of the United Kingdom under the 'Union' flag.

Michael Laverty when on the podium in BSB had the Union Jack above him while his brother Eugene podiums under the Tricolor of Eire.  This anomaly is yet unexplained maybe someone should ask Eugene.

Geographically Toomebridge is in Ulster therefore British.

Hope this helps.

No No No...

 Here in NI we can choose our national identity. ie. Be British or Irish. (Hold a british or Irish passport etc). There are two ways to look at it geographically depending on what view you hold. Eugene is Irish and Michael is British. Simple as. They make their choice and so is wrong to call Eugene british. Effectively, might aswel be calling an Aussie a German. Hope this helps

Well, well, well

Another player in WSBK so it seems. 2013 showed us at times with Camier that the Suzuki was close. Another step forward this year so it seems with both machine development and riders.

I must admit to being a wee bit surprised by Laverty's performance. But not that of Lowes. This young man is certainly part of a small clique of the world elite. He has a very bright future ahead of him. Many a team manager in both major global series will be keeping a close eye on his progress.

Cannot wait

 to see some racing for the first time this year, looks like Suzuki might be onto something this year. MotoGP, WSB and BSB are all looking like they are going to be good this year! Cannot wait for everything to get under way!
