Team WFR sign Alex Lowes
Team WFR Honda has brought Alex Lowes back into their fold alongside 2011 BSB Evo sensation Graeme Gowland and James Westmoreland for the 2012 British Superbike season.
Following a brilliant start in the Evo class at the first thee rounds of the 2011 BSB season, he left the team after refusing to sign a long-term management contract but both parties have since put that behind them and are looking forward to next year.
WFR team boss Myles Schofield said. "We believe Alex is a very talented motorcycle racer and that’s not changed since he left us. He admitted he made a couple of mistakes (in leaving the team in the first place). But I also accept some of the responsibility and that I could have handled the situation in a different way."
Lowes said: "I had apologised to the team at Silverstone. It cleared the air and was water under the bridge but I never thought I’d get the opportunity to get back to WFR so I was looking for the best ride I could get.
"Then Myles asked me if I’d be interested and, of course, I said I would. At the start of this year, we never had a problem with the bike or the team so why not go back?"
