Yesterday went on stage the last act of the 2016 season MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship, a season in which the team MV Agusta Reparto Corse and Leon Camier collect the 8th position in Championship Standings with 168 points.

When the lights go off in Race2, Leon Camier jumped very well from the start, rising quickly in 6th position into the leading group. Unfortunately, the Losail International Circuit is definitely not the best track for the characteristics of the MV Agusta F4 RC and the fast British rider is forced to lose some positions in the following laps, until the race is red flagged at 10 laps from the end, due to the presence of oil on track. The new start sees Camier make a little mistake that cost him a few positions, but the talented British rider still manages to finish in the score-points zone, in 13th position.

Thanks also to the 3 points earned yesterday in Qatar, Leon Camier placed 8th in the overall standings of MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship.

In the winter break Camier and his team will work hard to be ready for the new WorldSBK season, which will start in February 2017 in Phillip Island, Australia.

Leon Camier #2 WorldSBK – I made a little mistake on the start and I pushed hard to try to keep close to the guys in front, but I pushed too hard in the first corners and I did a little mistake, loosing some positions. This is a little bit frustrating but I am really happy to be in 9th position in the Championship. A big thanks to all my squad and MV Agusta, I think we did a really good job this season.
