Cadwell Park British Superbikes: Leon Camier: “I’m looking forward to going back to Cadwell Park”

Published: 22 August 2008

Leon Camier has said he’s relishing the opportunity to return to BSB action at Cadwell Park, despite suffering one of the most gruesome injuries of British Superbike history there a year ago.

Camier broke his left leg in a horrific spill when he landed at an angle over the Mountain.

The break put an end to the then Bike Animal Honda riders 2007 campaign, and he didn’t return to action until February with the new-look Airwaves Ducati team, partnering Shane Byrne, at the Official Pirelli test at Almeria, Spain.

But with podiums and a maiden BSB win under his belt, Camier said he is looking forward to a return to the Lincolnshire circuit.

He said: “I know it might seem strange after my accident last year, but I’m looking forward to going back to Cadwell Park. It will be good to get on with racing and put last year’s crash behind me once and for all. It’s a circuit that I like and that I believe the Airwaves Ducati 1098R can be competitive around, but it will definitely help if the weather remains consistent.

“At every track we visit I have to spend some time getting used to riding the Airwaves Ducati, but getting a good set-up on the bike is made that much more difficult when the conditions keep on changing. I think that if the weather can stay either wet or dry for the majority of the weekend we should be in good shape.”
