Qualified: 12th, Race 1: 8th, Race 2: DNF
Back to the day job after Suzuka 8-Hour and Motogp duties, Lowes beat his team-mate Guintoli in race one after an eventuful weekend, but fell in practice and in a wet race two.
He said: “It’s been a disappointing weekend. I had good pace in the dry on Friday but the weather didn’t work out in my favour for the race. The grip and conditions were very challenging and I struggled at the start but I managed to get back up to the top ten quickly enough. I had consistent pace and was looking at some decent points but it wasn’t to be.”
