Alex Lowes

The 2017 season saw British rider Alex Lowes record four podiums on the way to establishing himself as genuine contender for race wins by the end of the year. Following on from his impressive debut season with the Pata Yamaha Official WorldSBK Team in Yamaha's comeback year, the 27-year-old added consistency to his undoubted raw speed during 2017. Podiums at Donington Park, Misano, Magny-Cours and Qatar were the highlights of a promising season that saw Lowes finish in fifth overall in the WorldSBK Championship standings with 242 points.

2017 also saw Lowes make it back-to-back wins at the Suzuka 8 Hours endurance race as again he emerged victorious in the legendary test of man and machine with the Yamaha Factory Racing Team of Katsuyuki Nakasuga and Michael van der Mark. Not only did Lowes win the race, he also smashed the lap record by over a second with an incredible 2:06.932, showcasing his talent to the world. Starting his third consecutive season with the Pata Yamaha Official WorldSBK Team, Lowes is now focused on mounting a serious title challenge during 2018 onboard his Yamaha YZF-R1.
