Haslam sets sights high

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

BSB ti­tle con­tender Leon Haslam says he’s got the pace to win Suzuka on the Team Green Kawasaki as he lines up along­side Kazuma Watan­abe and Azlan Shah Bin Ka­maruza­man on a bike they are all fa­mil­iar with.

“We had a good test – bet­ter than ex­pected. Run­ning the bike last year gave us a head start and we’ve hit the ground run­ning with lap times and con­sis­tency. We were as fast as any­one, which is nice when you’re up against the best of WSB and Mo­togp!

“We can run at the pace to win, but any­thing can hap­pen at Suzuka. We’ll do our best for eight hours. It’s al­ways a tough race and you have to prop­erly pre­pare for it, but it’s a chal­lenge that I love tak­ing on.”
