Lowes prepared to kick off the intense flyaway triple-header at Motegi

Tuesday 11 October 2016

Sam Lowes and the Team Federal Oil Gresini Moto2 prepare to face the most intense and important phase of the 2016 campaign, including the traditional three consecutive races outside Europe leading up to the grand finale in Valencia. The first event is scheduled for this weekend in Japan at the Twin Ring Motegi circuit, where the 26-year-old British rider, fresh from the stunning win at Aragon, is determined to get another great result to keep alive the fight for the World Title, which sees him opposed to Johann Zarco and Alex Rins.

The Championship standings now see Lowes sitting in third place, 40 points behind Zarco and 39 behind Rins, with four races left to play.


“We have been really strong in Aragon, taking pole position and victory, so we head to Motegi bringing a lot of confidence with us: I’m feeling good and I think that in Japan we can fight again for the win. It will be important to start in a good way the triple-header of races outside Europe, because the fight for the World Title is definitely not over, and we will keep pushing until the end: a good result at Motegi would give us even more confidence ahead of Phillip Island and Sepang, other two good tracks for us. Anything can happen, I feel great and I want to give everything!”.
