Red Bull Honda World Superbike squad look forward to the Thai challenge

Continuing to learn and develop their Fireblade’s, the Red Bull Honda World Superbike Team are looking forward to the MOTUL Thai Round, as the duo of Leon Camier and Jake Gagne still have a lot to learn as the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship heads into Round Two of 2018.

British rider Camier had a very strong opening weekend with his new team in Australia, taking home a sixth and seventh from Down Under. With a tough history around Chang International Circuit, Camier’s best result has been an eighth position which he will be looking to rectify this weekend. With a positive attitude ahead of the round, he will be one to keep an eye on as the weekend progresses.

Camier explains: “I had a good first round at Phillip Island with the Red Bull Honda World Superbike Team and I'm looking to continue that in Thailand this weekend. It's a completely different kind of track compared to Phillip Island and I'm looking forward to seeing how the Fireblade and I get on this weekend. The team and I will continue to work on things to make the bike more competitive and I can't wait to get going again.”

With another new track to learn for 2018, American Jake Gagne will be ready for a new experience with his Dutch based team, as he looks forward to taking to the 4.5km circuit. Taking on the new challenges of the Asian heat, the track layout and still getting to know his new team, it will be an interesting weekend for the American.

Gagne: “Thailand will be another new track for me to learn but it's been a long wait between races and I can't wait to get back on track with the team and continue our progress. The track layout and weather will be a lot different to what we had in Australia but it's all great experience for me to get more familiar with the Fireblade and the team. I'll be going out there looking to improve and score more points this time around.”
