ViSK British Superbike Championship leader Leon Camier hopes up-rated engines will help continue his winning streak at this morning's Donington Park round.

The Airwaves Yamaha rider has won the previous three races, opening up an 11 point advantage over Worx Suzuki rider Sylvain Guintoli.

"The team has been working hard since Oulton Park on developing the race bikes and getting new engines ready, so it'll be great to see how the new package performs," explained Camier.

"Until we get on track it'll be hard to predict how we'll do, but if our top speed is competitive, I think we'll be looking good for some more strong results.

"Heading into this weekend leading the championship is a great feeling, but it's still early days and we need to continue to learn and improve so that we're still top come the final round in October," he warned.

Team-mate James Ellison is fifth in the championship with exactly half the points of Camier, but aims to threaten the frontrunners consistently from this weekend.

"I can't wait to get to Donington Park. I love the circuit and it's always been a favourite of mine," said Ellison. "I went into the previous round feeling confident but we made quite slow progress on bike set-up and it wasn't until the second race that a change to the gearing saw us make a huge leap forward.

"After the second race at Oulton Park, I now understand the bike much better and so I'll be aiming to be at the front of the field more consistently from now on," added Ellison.
