Leon Camier will join the Red Bull Honda World Superbike team for the 2018 season, it has been confirmed.

The 2009 British Superbike Champion has been linked with the team since earlier this year when rumours suggested he could be drafted in to replace Nicky Hayden as early as the second half of this season, but when this didn’t come to fruition speculation turned to a 2018 deal for the British star.

Joining World Superbikes the year after his British title success, Camier has remained in the series ever since and has raced Aprilia, Suzuki, BMW and most recently MV Agusta, with whom he has impressed considering the performance disadvantages faced by the Italian marque with their F4-RC machine.

“We are extremely happy to have Leon on board for the upcoming WorldSBK season” said Honda Europe’s WSB boss Marco Chini.


“He’s a great talent and an extremely professional rider, so I’m sure it will be a pleasure to work with him. We’re confident that his expertise will help us raise the performance of the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP2 to a whole new level so we’re looking forward to the new challenge.

“Right now, however, there’s still a season to complete, so we are fully concentrated on the remaining rounds in order to improve our package and finish the year on a high note.”

It’s not yet confirmed whether Stefan Bradl, who is currently out with a wrist injury, will remain with the team for 2018.
