Lowes: “I am happy to show that I can fight for the title"

Lowes: “I am happy to show that I can fight for the title'

Speed Up Racing’s Sam Lowes found it hard to hide his delight after he took a hard-fought maiden Moto2™ win in Austin.

The British rider crashed heavily a number of times during Practice and Qualifying, and was battered and bruised for the race on Sunday. Nothing could stop Lowes though from taking his maiden Moto2™ victory and establishing himself as a serious title contender for 2015.

Sam Lowes:
“It was a tough race, because of my three crashes earlier in the weekend, plus it was really important for me to finish after the crash in Qatar. Then we had some spots of rain, and I thought…oh no…but I followed Johann, and I felt like I could go faster, so I got to the front, made my lap times and luckily it was enough! I am really happy, thanks to the team for the great job they did, and I am happy to show that I can fight for the Championship. It’s been a tough weekend with the weather and with my crashes, but that shows what a good bond I have with my team, that we made it through the weekend and got the win. As for Argentina I enjoyed the track last year and had one of my best races of the season, so hopefully we can go there and win again!”
