Lowes has been an integral part of Yamaha's WorldSBK program since the Japanese manufacturer returned to the premier production racing series in 2016. In a partnership that has spanned four seasons, Lowes and Yamaha together have completed 106 races, in which Lowes finished on the podium on no fewer than 15 occasions.
The highlight of Lowes' time with Yamaha undoubtedly came in 2018 at Brno in the Czech Republic, when the Briton got the better of his teammate in a closely-contested Race 2 to take his first WorldSBK race win.
But the successful partnership between Yamaha and Lowes extended further than just the WorldSBK paddock. The 29-year-old was also a key member of the Yamaha Factory Racing Team that took three consecutive victories at the prestigious 8 Hours of Suzuka, only missing out on an unprecedented fourth win this year by the narrowest of margins.
Yamaha Motor Europe would like to thank Alex Lowes for his significant contribution to their racing achievements and to wish him every success for the future.
