Voltcom Crescent Suzuki Ready For Assen WSBK

Posted:

Voltcom Crescent Suzuki returns to the iconic Assen TT Circuit in The Netherlands this weekend for the third round of the eni FIM Superbike World Championship hoping to strengthen its current third place in the Manufacturer Standings.

Eugene Laverty wants to capitalise on the progress made so far with the Voltcom Crescent Suzuki GSX-R1000 after his gripping comeback performance at Motorland Aragon in Spain; clinching fifth and sixth places after early-lap incidents relegated him to the mid-pack in both races.

Laverty has a strong history at the Dutch track, with a front-row start and race-two win on his last visit, plus a podium-spot the year before; and the Irishman is confident he can run at the front astride his Yoshimura-powered Suzuki.

‰ÛÏI knew that Aragon was going to be a difficult circuit for us but I'm confident that the next three circuits will suit the Voltcom Crescent Suzuki GSX-R better." Laverty admitted. "Assen is a fantastic track and very enjoyable to ride. My aim is to climb back onto that rostrum again as soon as possible and I feel optimistic ahead of Assen.

"We're working hard to improve our package and we certainly gained more knowledge about the GSX-R at the previous round. If there's one positive to be taken from a difficult weekend then it's the vital lessons learned.‰Û

Alex Lowes has equally-strong memories of ‰Û÷The Cathedral‰Ûª having taken both pole position and a dramatic race-one victory here last year on his way to clinching the British Superbike Championship.

as part of the British-based World Superbike team with his first visit to a circuit he knows well; and continuing his education aboard the Suzuki GSX-R1000.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm really looking forward to Assen this weekend." Lowes stated. "It‰Ûªs the first track on the World Superbike calendar that I have raced at previously so it will give me a great opportunity to get to grips with the Suzuki GSX-R at a circuit I know well.

"I‰Ûªve been training hard as usual and I‰Ûªm feeling good, so I‰Ûªm raring to go for the third round.‰Û
