Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

Leon Haslam was ea­ger to kick-start 2017 with his new Kawasaki team and left the Span­ish test con­vinced he can de­feat Shane Byrne in the 2017 MCE Bri­tish Su­per­bike ti­tle fight. Haslam’s new JG Speed­fit Bournemouth team sees Luke Mossey join as his team­mate and also boasts the ex­pe­ri­enced Jack Valentine as team boss. Haslam set a time of 1m 41.928s dur­ing the test, al­most 0.3sec quicker than he lapped the Jerez cir­cuit this time last year. Fol­low­ing a crash for Randy Krum­me­n­acher in Jerez, Haslam was called up to test for the Pucetti Kawasaki WSB team in Por­ti­mao, where he placed fourth quick­est.
