Suzuki rider Alex Lowes feels that he is riding well after a "solid" top ten finish in the World Superbike Championship event at Jerez on Sunday.
In the first race he finished seventh and in race two, after being forced to pit early due to tyre issues and then being handed a ride-through penalty for not staying in the pit lane by marshals, he finished 18th.
Allthough he finished so far down in the second race, the Englishman posted some very impressive 1m 43s laps and would in all likelihood have had a top six finish had he not had issues.
"Overall a slightly disappointing day but we had a solid seventh in race one,” said Lowes. “We made the bike better for race two and had really good pace, but unfortunately we had an issue with the tyre at the start, which if it wasn't for this, we could have had an even stronger second race.
"I'm pleased with how I've been riding all weekend, the team have worked hard and I did the best I could for 40 laps, unfortunately we didn't get the results we wanted but we'll look forward to Magny-Cours, “ said Lowes.
"I feel like I'm riding the best I have all season so my confidence feels good and I'm looking forward to the last two rounds of the year."
