It was a brilliant weekend for Eazi-Grip™ supported teams as they dominated the standings in BSB, WSBK and at the Bol d’Or 24-Hour Race.

 

The Milwaukee Aprilia team headed to Portugal for Round 10 of the WSBK championship this weekend.  Eugene Laverty and Lorenzo Savadori had their best Superpole results of the 2017 season so far at Portimao taking P2 and P3 on the grid.  The team had shown promising pace all weekend and were consistently within the top ten in Free Practice. Both riders delivered in the pole shootout session, with blistering laps that put them on the front row together for the first time and behind only series leader Rea.

Race 2: Grid P4, Finish P4

Lorenzo Savadori:
