Haslam ready for action on World Superbike Championship return

Kawasaki Racing Team's Leon Haslam heads into the opening round of the World Superbike Championship at Phillip Island in Australia this coming weekend after a successful teat at the circuit earlier this week.

“We spent the test earlier this week looking at race set-up and looking at a real specific plan of what we wanted to do, hence we were not posting really good one-off lap times and putting new tyres in.

"Our race times were pretty competitive over both days of the test. I had a bit of a go for a lap time at the end of day two but I got traffic on my first two laps and I think it was my fourth flying lap I did the 1’30.6s.

"I think if we could have maximised the early laps, like everyone else seemed to be doing, we could have been a little closer. The biggest thing about the test for me was the average of the base pace, looking after the tyres, and managing that side of things.

"We are in a good place, I think. I am not looking to the races just yet, I am looking to the practice session on Friday, because there are still a few things we want to try. I feel good and we are making the steps.”
