Camier matches season-best result for MV Agusta

1 of 1

Leon Camier repeated his best-ever performance on MV Agusta’s F4 with a fourth place in today’s opening race at Donington Park.

The 2009 British Superbike Champion has been on the pace throughout the weekend and came strong towards the end of the second race to come out on top of a battle with Nicky Hayden and Lorenzo Savadori.

Despite the fourth place matching the bike’s best ever result, first achieved in Assen earlier this year, Camier isn’t convinced he quite has the pace to bridge the gap to the Kawasakis and Ducatis out front.

“The pace we were running wasn’t as good as what I thought we could run,” Camier told MCN after the race. “We were a lot stronger this morning but made a setting change for the race and I wasn’t happy with it. I think there’s some room for improvement tomorrow afternoon just to anticipate the race condition a little more. All in all it was pretty good, I don’t think we’d have enough to go with the guys in front but you never know what happens, if we make some steps forward and the others make mistakes you never know.”
