Zero Points for Leon Camier in Race 2 at Laguna Seca

The final race of the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship’s weekend at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca got underway this afternoon at 14.00 local time, seeing Leon Camier scoring no point because of a technical problem with his bike.

In the morning’s Warm Up Leon and his squad worked really hard to set the latest changes to the bike’s setting before Race2. The Ashford Kent (UK) 30-years old rider ended up the session with the eight time (1’23,882) in the timesheet, only 1s far from the top rider.

When the lights goes out on the Laguna Seca circuit, Camier starts from the first row because of the 6th place he got on Saturday’s Race1. Due to some complications in the early moment of the race, Leon loses some positions and he is forced to push hard to fill the gap with the first. Unfortunately, after only 7 laps, Camier’s bike suffered a technical problem and the rider wasn’t able to finish the race.

With this 8th WorldSBK round left behind, the MV Agusta Reparto Corse team will now face a long summer break, which will end at the next race at Lausitzring, in Germany, from 18 to 20 August.

Leon Camier #2 WorldSBK – It was a difficult start and a difficult race, I had a couple of issues and even the bike’s setting wasn’t so perfect. I went back a couple of places quite early in the race but to be honest I was struggling a bit to hold the position I was in. In the end, we had a technical problem and I wasn’t able to finish the race. I now look forward to the next race in Lausitzring where I am sure we can get some good results.
