Team MV Agusta Reparto Corse_061816


Second day of action at Misano Adriatico for the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship, with the MV Agusta Reparto Corse and Leon Camier finishing another top 10 race in WorldSBK.

WorldSBK – Superpole1, 2 & Race
Started from the SP1, Leon Camier makes an excellent performance in the qualification heats, entering the SP2 with the second fastest lap time and gaining the 8th place on grid with a 1’35.047 lap time.

In race1 the British rider started really fast but after a few meters got involved into an crash between Savadori and Fores, that pushed him into the gravel. Camier was consequently forced to return on track from the last position and, thanks the excellent feeling with his MV Agusta F4 RC, he did an incredible comeback recovering 15 positions and closing 8th his race.

Camier will be back on track tomorrow, at 13.00 Italian time, for the second and final race of the Misano Adriatico WorldSBK round.

WorldSSP – Superpole1,2
This Saturday saw the WorldSSP riders being on track for the exiting rounds of SP1 and SP2, with Jules Cluzel ending up in 8th position the SP2 session, despite some changes to the bike setup hadn’t a positive outcome. French’s teammate Lorenzo Zanetti, who had a difficult day one in Misano, managed to find a more solid setting, recovering 9 positions and qualifying in Top 15 for tomorrow’s race.

Leon Camier #2 WordSBK – I got caught up at the start, with Savadori going down and Forse hitting him. I think I hit Savadori with my boot when we were on the gravel, cause my boot was really damaged and that caused me some problem during the race. After that I had to push hard, trying to overtake people and it was a good comeback since I had a really good pace. I think tomorrow we will have the pace to do something good.

Jules Cluzel #16 WorldSSP – I am not so happy about this second day. Today we did an important changes of my bike but it definitely wasn’t the right way. Misano is a track where I have always won a lot and tomorrow I will do my best to get as many point as possibile for the overall standing.

Lorenzo Zanetti #87 WorldSSP – After the troubles we met yesterday, today we surely found a better setup and I managed to stay a little bit more with the other MV Agusta. In SP1 I had the chance to make a really good lap and step up in SP2, if I hadn’t made a mistake right in the end. Anyway we showed a quite good race pace today and I hope tomorrow we can show something good as well.
