Red Bull Honda rider looking to put behind disappointing Portuguese round

Leon Camier (Red Bull Honda World Superbike Team) faces the final European round of the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship with high hopes after struggling around Portimao. The 32-year-old from Kent returns to the 4.4km Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours sitting 13th in the championship and with the aim of returning to his early-season form, as well as to bounce back into the top ten as swiftly as possible.

The Nolan Portuguese Round was a rough weekend for Camier, who suffered technical issues that forced him to abandon halfway through Race One. Things didn’t improve on Sunday, as the Brit crossed the line in 14th for his worst finish of the season and behind teammate Jake Gagne (Red Bull Honda World Superbike Team) for just the second time this year.

Camier and his team have been able to work over the Fireblade during the past two weeks and the Brit is positive that he will be back fighting amongst the best at Magny-Cours, where he claimed a season best of fourth in last year’s Race One: “I'm looking forward to Magny-Cours, the last European round for this season. The team and I have looked over everything from the last round and we've come up with some good ideas to get some speed back, we're all pushing to find the form we had earlier in the season. I like the Magny-Cours circuit, I've gone well there in the past, so the aim is to come back stronger this weekend”.
