Laverty: “Hopefully I can adapt quickly to the circuit”

Laverty: “Hopefully I can adapt quickly to the circuit”

Eugene Laverty is hoping things go smoother in Austin, after electronic issues affected his MotoGP™ debut in Qatar.

The Commercial Bank Grand Prix of Qatar saw some encouraging progress from the ASPAR Team although race night at Losail wasn't the success they had hoped for. It promises to be another intense weekend of learning for Laverty, meanwhile, as the Irishman makes his first visit to the Texan track. The Aspar Team rider will have a new ally in Texas, as Power Electronics return to re-form the partnership that enjoyed such great success during 2012 and 2013.

Eugene Laverty:
“We did a great job over the weekend in Qatar, I got to know the bike much better and my feeling improved as the Grand Prix progressed. Unfortunately things didn't go as we hoped in the race. Now we go to two completely new circuits for me in Texas and Argentina, so it is going to be another two weekends of learning. We improved the set-up a lot in Qatar so that is encouraging for this weekend. As a team we are moving in the right direction so I am looking forward to continuing with the job. Hopefully I can adapt quickly to the two circuits and gather some more experience with the bike so that when we get back to Europe and Jerez I can really push.”
