Camier Scores 5 Additional Points at Race 1 in Thailand

MV Agusta Reparto Corse_031216

The 4.554km Chang International Circuit hosted this afternoon the WorldSBK Tissot-Superpole and Race 1, with the MV Agusta Reparto Corse rider Leon Camier finishing in 11th place after a very hard comeback from the 18th position.

After an incredibile WorldSBK FP1 session, seeing Camier getting the 1st position, the British rider qualified only 14th after today Tissot-Superpole, implying a really hard battle for the Schiranna based squad.

Despite a bad start has further complicated the hard situation, the British rider was able to get the best out of this MV Agusta F4 RC and, after passing several riders, he accomplished a great comeback from the 18th to 11th position and gained 5 points in the overall ranking.

Tomorrow, at 16.00 local time, Camier and his MV Agusta F4 RC will line up again on the Chang International Circuit grid, ready to start another fight in Race 2.

Leon Camier #2 – It was another bad start again. This is something we need to improve for sure, especially we have to work on the clutch. Anyway I am pretty satisfied I think we actually made a really quality race coming from 18th to 11th, making good passes. In the end I am happy because we did a good job and hopefully tomorrow we can get an even better result.
