Haslam chasing Aragon glory

Kawasaki Racing Team's Leon Haslam is looking to challenge for more World Superbike victories in round three of the championship at the Aragon circuit in Spain this weekend.

“Aragon is a circuit I last raced at in 2015 but one that I got on well and took pole position. I managed to score a podium there so those are not bad memories.

It has not been one of my favourite circuits but the lap times have been pretty competitive. My very first test with KRT was at Aragon last year, even if we lost some track time due to the weather. But the lap times still came pretty good.

I am predicting that it is going to be a tough weekend this time. Jonathan’s record around there is really competitive. Chaz Davies goes pretty well there and Alvaro Bautista is going to be the man to beat, especially with the couple of big straights that there are at this circuit.

I think it is going to be a big fight to get on that podium but obviously that is always my aim. My back is better, definitely ten times better than it was in Thailand.”
