Great Performance for Leon Camier, 4th in Race 1 at Assen

MV Agusta Reparto Corse_041616

Camier, who was the fastest among the drivers entered in Superpole 1 yesterday, today has long dominated the qualifying heats but, due to a rider whom slowed him down, he narrowly missed the Tissot-Superpole 2, finishing 13th on starting grid.

In a dry Race 1 Camier has put on track the same determination shown in the qualification sessions. After a good start, the British rider has immediately established a good feeling with his MV Agusta F4 RC and managed to cross the finish line in 4th position, improving his ranking in the overall standings.

Thanks to this outstanding performance, Camier got 13 points in overall standings and rises to 12th place overall, one step away from the WorldSBK Top 10.

Leon Camier #2 – I am really happy with the result, it is very important for me and the team, for the hard work everyone did race after race. I think the lap time was good enough to be strong with the front guys but the problem is we were too far back on the grid to race at front. I don’t know if we will be able to do the same tomorrow but I will do my best to collect as many point as possible.

Tomorrow Leon Camier and MV Agusta Team will be back on track for the second and final round of the Dutch round of this MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship, scheduled at 13:00 local time.
