Alex Lowes continues to race for the Kawasaki Racing Team for the 2021 WorldSBK season, after seven years of consistent progress onboard Suzuki, Yamaha and Kawasaki machinery.
Beginning his career in the 125cc World Championship, Lowes - twin brother to Moto2™ rider Sam Lowes - then went on to compete in BSB for four seasons, becoming the series’ youngest ever champion in 2013.
Lowes would claim his first two WorldSBK podiums in his first full season of racing in 2014 and only just miss out on a top ten spot in the classification. After a similar 2015, where he finished tenth in the Championship, 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.
After starting his first Kawasaki campaign with victory in Australia, Lowes will be looking to build on that as he aims to mount a challenge to his teammate to secure his first world title.
