The Voltcom Crescent Suzuki team has had a mixed 2014 in the eni FIM Superbike World Championship.
The season started with the best possible result as Eugene Laverty gave the team its first win of the series, but as the year progressed podiums were hard to find both for Laverty and WSBK rookie Alex Lowes who had their ups and downs, as well as crashes and technical problems that affected their performances in the first nine rounds. Voltcom Crescent Suzuki’s Team Principal Paul Denning shared with WorldSBK.com his view on the season so far.
“This is the strongest line up we’ve had since we started our World Superbike project back in 2012, we shared a lot of promise, some great results but consistency hasn’t been the strong point. This has been affected largely by not qualifying the bike well. If you have a big time deficit after three of four laps because you’re back in position ten or something fighting, you can come through very well and finish fourth or fifth, but the fight for the podium is fairly impossible.
