Impressive Race Two Comeback for Lowes in Aragon

160406_103

Pata Yamaha Official WorldSBK Team riders Alex Lowes and Sylvain Guintoli took top ten results in the closing race of the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship Pirelli Aragón Round today with the younger of the Yamaha riders finishing ninth, just ahead of his teammate.

A difficult start from his P3 grid position saw Lowes initially run seventh on the opening lap, before an incident on lap six caused him to run off track. Re-joining the race in 18th he quickly picked his way back through the pack, taking five places in as many laps to sit 12th with four to go. Continuing his impressive charge, the British rider entered the top ten with two laps remaining, beating his teammate to the line in the dying seconds to round the weekend off in ninth place and adding seven points to his championship total to retain his 12th position overall.

Opting for a conservative start from his front row position in a bid to maintain his tyre-life, Guintoli began Sunday’s fight from fifth place. The strategy, however, proved to be short-lived and the Frenchman’s pace suffered as a result. Circulating in seventh for the majority of the race, he succumbed in the closing stages, collecting tenth position and six points at the flag to leave the weekend sitting in sixth place in the standings.

The Pata Yamaha Official WorldSBK Team now move back to northern Europe as the World Championship travels to Assen, in the Netherlands, for the next race on Saturday 16th April.
