Haslam chasing success in Portugal

Kawasaki Racing Team's Leon Haslam is looking for further World Superbike Championship success as he aims to add to his six podium finishes this year in round 10 at the Portmiao circuit in Portugal this weekend.

“I have had several podiums with various manufacturers over the years at Portimao, and enjoyed some really good racing.

"The recent test was really positive for our team and on race tyres I think we were ranked 1-2.

"I was only one or two tenths of a second off Jonathan’s best lap time with a race tyre. It has been a tough year in some ways with a few injuries and having to learn some circuits but Portimao is a circuit we have tested at now and every time I have done that so far I have made the podium.

"Obviously that is the aim but also I feel we can be even more competitive and challenge the front guys. That is the main aim this weekend and I am really looking forward to it.”
