About

Alex Lowes switches to the championship-winning Kawasaki Racing Team for the 2020 WorldSBK season, after six years of consistent progress onboard Suzuki and Yamaha machinery.

Beginning his career in the 125cc World Championship, Lowes - twin brother to Moto2™ rider Sam Lowes - then went on to compete in British Superbikes for four seasons, becoming the series’ youngest ever winner in 2013.

After a similar 2015, Lowes and the full Crescent Racing team switched to Yamaha machinery for 2016. After that first transitional season (with a Suzuka 8 Hours crown picked up along the way), the English rider began to thrive in 2017, finishing the year fifth in the standings with four podiums. 2018 was a similar year for the Englishman, with one peak moment – his first WorldSBK race win, taken in phenomenal fashion at Brno.

2019 became a true breakout year for Lowes, as he claimed third position in the standings, beaten only by Jonathan Rea and Álvaro Bautista. The 29-year-old picked up nine podiums along the way, earning him a move to one of the most solicited yet challenging seats in WorldSBK: the second factory ZX-10RR alongside Rea.

Adapting quickly to the Kawasaki will be Lowes’ main goal in 2020 – and while a repeat of third would be considered a success for the Englishman, he will surely be eyeing a title challenge very soon.
