Haslam starts title bid early
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.
