Laverty: “My aim is to regain ground in the Open class”

Laverty: “My aim is to regain ground in the Open class”

Eugene Laverty wants to build on his points scoring finish in Mugello last time out in an effort to challenge for the Open class title.

The Irish rider crossed the line in fourteenth after a difficult weekend at the Italian Grand Prix, and currently has three championship points.

Eugene Laverty: “These past two rounds have been really difficult and so I really want to rediscover the pace we'd shown earlier in the season. Catalunya is essentially a 'new' circuit for me as I haven't ridden there since 2008. I don't see that as a big hurdle as I'll do my homework and prepare well beforehand. The team are working hard to improve the balance of the bike to help me in the flowing corners and I'm confident that we're moving in the right direction. My aim is to regain ground in the Open class battle and fight my way up into the top three by the summer break."
