mv-agusta-reparto-corse_101616

When the race day ends, the curtain fell on the last European round of MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship, with Team MV Agusta Reparto Corse’s rider Leon Camier crashing after only two laps from the start in WorldSBK Race 2, while Jules Cluzel finishes 6th and come close to the 2nd position in WorldSSP Championship Standings.

WorldSBK – Race 2
In the morning Warm Up Leon Camier got the 8th time, only less than 1 second from the leader Tom Sykes. When the lights go out on the WorldSBK Race 2, Camier immediately started his battle for the top 10 positions but unfortunately he was forced to pull back after only two laps because he crashed in turn 8, while he was riding in 8th position.

Leon Camier, currently 8th in Championship Standings, will be back on track on October 28-30, in Qatar, for the latest round of this WorldSBK season.

WorldSSP – Race
It was a difficult race’s start for Jules Cluzel, that went off fast from the front row but lost 4 positions and found himself fighting into the top 10 area. At the end of the 19 laps of the Andalusian track, the Team MV Agusta Reparto Corse’s Frenchman crossed the finish line in 6th position and – thanks to the 10 points he got in the race –  he is now at -3 points from his rival Randy Krummenacher, currently 2nd in Overall Standing; a very thin gap, that Jules will try to close during the next and final round of WorldSSP in Qatar.

Leon Camier #2 WorldSBK – I am little bit frustrated to be honest because I expected to be better. We made several changes for the race and I felt I had a good rhythm but in the end I lost the front and I still don’t know why. Losail would be a thought track for us becauseit doesn’t fully suit our bike but I will do the best I can for the championship

Jules Cluzel #16 WorldSSP – I expected a difficult race and so it was. We had some acceleration problems but in the end I managed to close near the 5th position. Anyway, I tried to do the best race possible and now we are only 3 points away from the 2° position in Overall Standings. I really like Losail circuit and we will work hard to find new solutions and have a good race.
