Leon Camier finished in 4th position Race 2 of the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship at Magny-Cours circuit, in France, and got for the fourth time his best seasonal score.

After the brilliant yesterday’s performance in Race 1, which saw Camier leading the race for seven consecutive laps and get closer to the first podium of the season for Team MV Agusta Reparto Corse in WorldSBK, the British rider today was focused on further improve his score.

When the lights went off, Camier started very well and he stepped up in 4th position, fighting into the top 5 of the race with the Honda rider Michael Van Der Mark, always riding with an impressive race pace, very close to the one of the first two riders.

At the end of the 21 laps of the French circuit, the British closed the race in 4th position, at 6,5s from the podium, earning + 13 points in Overall Standing.

Leon Camier #2 WorldSBK – I am really happy with this result. I didn’t expect to be so fast in dry condition but today I found a good feeling with the bike and I was able to always stay with the front riders. For the future I think it is possibile to get close to the podium again and bridge the gap to the leaders. I want to thank my team for the great job on my bike: every race we become stronger and stronger and we are now constantly fighting for the podium.
