Alex, who is already deputising for the injured Stuart Easton in the MSS team, will be joining his twin brother Sam who rides in the World Supersport series in the WSB Brno paddock on 10th July. Alex immediately impressed in British Superbike when he jumped on the new 2011 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R at Thruxton, putting the machine on pole for the first time.
Team owner Nick Morgan said,
“Alex stood in for the team at the last minute and immediately gelled with the bike and squad, we’ve been really excited with his performances. A shot on a World Superbike is a fantastic opportunity and he goes with our blessing, albeit with a word of caution also!”
Alex Lowes added ,
“To first be offered the MSS ride, then an opportunity in World Superbikes is incredible and I’d like to thank Nick and the team for being so understanding. My main focus is still on the BSB Championship and getting into that top six Shootout for Kawasaki. Snetterton is up next before the WSB round so that is the priority.”
