16 settembre 2016  After the long summer break, Team MV Agusta Reparto Corse is finally back on track at the EuroSpeedway circuit, in Germany, for the 10th round of the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship.

WorldSBK FP1-FP2
Leon Camier had rode at the EuroSpeedway circuit only during the test in July, but thanks to the long experience and the excellent feeling with his MV Agusta F4 RC machine, the British rider has quickly adapted to the new circuit, finishing in 3rd position after the FP1 session with a 1’37.914 lap time. In the second and final session, Leon stopped the crono at 1’37.809, qualifying in 9th position at only 0,360s from the first.

Leon Camier is currently 8th in Championship Standings and tomorrow will be back on track for the Superpole 2 (10:55) and for the first race of this WorldSBK German Round (13.00).

WorldSSP FP1-FP2
Despite a difficult start in FP2 due to a problem with the oil radiator, Jules Cluzel was able to bring his MV Agusta F3 675 in 4th position, less than 1 second from the top rider, entering the tomorrow’s Superpole2 session. Cluzel’s teammate Lorenzo Zanetti finished the FP2 with a 1’42.531 lap time, ending up 13th, ready to comeback from the Superpole1.

Leon Camier #2 WorldSBK – Second session didn’t really go as planned, we had a little problem at the bike setting but at the end of the session we understood what was wrong. If the rest of the weekend will be dry, we can start from when we left this morning and we can surely show something good

Jules Cluzel #16 WorldSSP – We had a problem at the oil radiator that made us waste most of the session, and this influenced a lot my performance. I’m quite satisfied since in the end I had the chance to ride a single lap with the new tyre and despite this I was able to finish 4th. I’m sure if I had had the chance to ride some more laps with that tyre I would have done even better.

Lorenzo Zanetti #87 WorldSSP – We started with some difficulties this morning but we are working hard to close the gap with the top 10. I missed the Superpole2 by a whisker and tomorrow I am going to give my best to get a good grid position.
