Solid 4th Place for Cluzel in WorldSSP at Misano, While Camier Got Top 15 in WorldSBK

Team MV Agusta Reparto Corse_061716

WorldSBK – FP1, FP2
After the outstanding 4th and 5th place got in Donington in the last race, Leon Camier arrived in Italy to confirm the excellent trend of this 2016 season, both for the rider and the team.

The actions on track began, as usual, by the FP1 in the morning, where Leon Camier secured the 17th time, 2 seconds far from the leader. In the next Free Practice session the British rider lowered its own best time by more than 1 second, getting the 15th time on the combined timesheet, and entering the Superpole1 scheduled for tomorrow at 10:30 local time.

WorldSSP – FP1, FP2
The Misano World Circuit “Marco Simoncelli” was also the venue of the first two WorldSSP Free Practice sessions, with Jules Cluzel who started really fast his weekend, ending in 5th position the FP1 heat. In FP2 Cluzel and his team continued the set-up work on the MV Agusta F3 675 and conquered the 4th position with a 1’39.052 lap time, just over 0,1s from the top rider, entering right into the tomorrow’s Superpole2 (11:55).

It was a more complicated situation for the other rider of the team, Lorenzo Zanetti, that due to some technical issues rode two difficult FP sessions. Tomorrow the Italian rider will start his comeback from the Superpole1, scheduled for 11.30 Italian time.

Leon Camier #2 WorldSBK – It was little bit a difficult day to be honest, since the bike setting wasn’t so particularly strong here as I expected. We made a good improvement in the second session and hopefully we can make a big step forward tomorrow and come out with a better setting.

Jules Cluzel #16 WorldSSP – We definitely started in the right way, doing a very good job from the first session. This afternoon we tried to improve even more but the way we chose wasn’t the right one. What really matters now is that we have quite clear ideas on the work we have to do tomorrow to stay on top.

Lorenzo Zanetti #87 WorldSSP – I can not be satisfied with this first day here at Misano, because the 25th place is certainly far from my goals and my potential. We need to understand exactly which is the area where we suffer more and fix this situation as soon as possible, because we can definitely do better then this. I am fully confident in my team.
