Aprilia gives Lowes two races to prove worth

  Aprilia gives Lowes two races to prove worth Aprilia has said it would like Sam Lowes to perform well in the next two grands prix in order for him to secure his future with the Italian marque for next year. Despite being on a two-year contract with the Noale factory – which the Briton is steadfast in his claims it is watertight – Lowes has been put under intense pressure to perform after a difficult start to his MotoGP career. The British rider has only qualified outside of the top 20 once in the first nine rounds and has scored just two points after finishing 14th at the French Grand Prix, but has started to show flashes of speed. This has not gone unnoticed by Aprilia boss Romano Albesiano, but the Italian still wants more from Lowes from the Czech and Austrian races. “We would really like to give him more chance,” Albesiano told “It’s very difficult for a rookie. We are seeing some special performances from rookies, which are unbelievable. “Normally, even a very good rider takes time to get to the level. “He has showed some good signs of improvement, I’m really hoping he will show us more in these (next) two races to finally be able to confirm him.” Aprilia had courted former rider Alvaro Bautista and Danilo Petrucci, but both secure their futures with Aspar and Pramac respectively just before the summer break.

Sam Lowes says the situation at the Aprilia MotoGP team before his contract was cancelled a year early was "lacklustre" and " unprofessional ". "Honestly, the communication between him [Albesiano] and me, myself and management is so lacklustre and not professional, and it's very

Sam Lowes has slammed Aprilia management in the wake of his 2018 contract termination, the Briton taking issue with ‘lacklustre’ communication between it and himself.

2013 World Supersport champion Lowes was contracted to Aprilia for two years beginning in 2017, but after a tough start to his MotoGP career – he has scored just two points in 10 races – the Italian manufacturer quickly cast his future into doubt.

However, as Lowes’ manager Roger Burnet confirmed to BT Sport, Aprilia activated its break clause in the Briton’s contract on Thursday, with unconfirmed reports Scott Redding – who himself has been dropped by Pramac in favour of Jack Miller for 2018 – will join the team.

Yamaha retains Lowes and van der Mark for 2018

  Yamaha retains Lowes and van der Mark for 2018 The Yamaha World Superbike team has confirmed its current line-up of Alex Lowes and Michael van der Mark will remain with the Japanese manufacturer for 2018. The Yamaha-backed Crescent Racing team – run by Paul Denning – brought Lowes onboard for the 2014 season, then on Suzuki machinery. The 2013 British Superbike champion found the adaptation to WorldSBK tough, and only scored one podium finish in his two years riding the Suzuki. The return of Yamaha to WorldSBK in 2016 saw Lowes’ performances improve, the Briton a double podium winner – a third at Donington and a second at Misano – this season and fifth in the standings on 148 points after the first eight rounds. “I am really happy to continue with Yamaha and the Pata Yamaha Team into 2018,” said Lowes. “I feel part of the Yamaha family and this year I believe I have made a step up from last season. “I want to keep improving and to get to where I, Yamaha and the R1 belong, which is challenging at the front of WorldSBK, so this is my goal and mission. “I want to say a massive thank you for the faith Yamaha Motor Europe and the whole team has shown in me, and I look forward to repaying them with reults.” Lowes and van der Mark, along with Yamaha veteran Katsuyuki Nakasuga, guided Yamaha to its third successive Suzuka 8 Hours victory last month – Lowes a part of the winning line-up in 2016 also. Dutchman van der Mark moved from Honda to Yamaha for this season.

When asked on Friday at the Red Bull Ring about the situation, Lowes disagreed with the lack of communication between himself and Aprilia management, but has vowed to prove the marque wrong in the remaining eight races.

“Honestly, the communication between him (Albesiano) and me, myself and management, is so lacklustre and not professional, and it’s very difficult,”

“I wish them the best – I think the project has great potential, I think bike has great potential to do well in MotoGP, but there’s no love lost.

“There’s going to be no issues obviously at all, but I don’t owe them anything, because the opportunity they said they gave me wasn’t there anyway.

“So, yeah, it’s been frustrating, it’s been disappointing, there’s some people in there that I won’t be friends with but that’s not the end of the world.

Scott Redding set for Aprilia in 2018 after Lowes axed

  Scott Redding set for Aprilia in 2018 after Lowes axed Scott Redding is set to ride for Aprilia next season, with Sam Lowes being cut from the team, according to Lowes will no longer serve the second year of his contract with the Aprilia Gresini team, with the team deciding to move on after a difficult season for the former World Supersport champion. Redding has now been thrown a MotoGP lifeline, after being replaced at Pramac Ducati by Australian Jack Miller next season. Redding will be set to reunite with the Gresini squad after riding for the Italian outfit in 2014. The Briton struggled on the open class Honda, before moving to Marc VDS Honda. This leaves Lowes in a difficult place, now left with not many options available in the premier class for next season. He had expected to keep his ride at Aprilia after positive talks over the summer break. Lowes’ teammate Aleix Espargaro, who has outshone the Briton throughout this season, tweeted a message of support to the rider, presumably after hearing the news.

Crutchlow: “All they’ve done is demoralise him”

Fellow Briton Cal Crutchlow pulled no punches in his response to the situation, the LCR Honda man branding it a ‘disgrace’.

Crutchlow, who is good friends with the Aprilia rider, has questioned Aprilia’s expectations of Lowes in his maiden campaign and believes his speed warrants him a proper chance.

“I think it’s a disgrace,”

“There’s no other way to put it. What did they expect him to do in his first year in MotoGP? The package is not a Yamaha, it it?

“We know they’ve treated him like crap, we know that the bike hasn’t started in most sessions, the crew chief is not very good.

“All they’ve done is demoralise him more every time. The way it’s been handled has been out of order and I don’t agree with it. He deserves a shot because he is fast.”

Savadori to test Aprilia MotoGP bike at Misano .
Aprilia World Superbike rider Lorenzo Savadori will ride the Noale firm’s MotoGP bike at a test at Misano next week, according to Savadori stepped up to the Superbike World Championship last season with ex-MotoGP outfit Ioda on a an Aprilia RSV4, the Italian winning the European Superstock series with the manufacturer in the year before. The Italian enjoyed a strong maiden campaign, the highlight being a brace of fourth-place finishes at Assen and Donington. He ended the year 10th in the standings with 150 points. Savadori switched to the Milwaukee-backed Shaun Muir Racing outfit for 2017 alongside 2014 WorldSBK runner-up Eugene Laverty with increased factory involvement from Aprilia. This season has proven rather more difficult than last year, though Savadori has still tallied up several top six finishes on the bike and currently lies 14th in the championship. Aprilia – along with Yamaha, Honda and Ducati – will take part in a private test at Misano next week ahead of the British Grand Prix, with Savadori getting his first taste of MotoGP machinery during the outing. Savadori won’t be the first WorldSBK rider to sample a MotoGP bike this year, with Ducati’s Chaz Davies spending a few laps with the Desmosedici GP17 at Mugello in May. While a deal is yet to be confirmed, all talk in the WorldSBK paddock suggests Savadori will remain with Aprilia next year alongside Laverty. In MotoGP, Aprilia will bring onboard Scott Redding – who it tried to sign for its return season in 2015 – to replace fellow Brit Sam Lowes, who was made surplus to requirements on the Thursday of the Austrian Grand Prix.
