Camier on the cusp of history at Brands

Leon Camier stands to become one of the most successful British Superbike Championship riders of all-time if he wraps up victory in all three races during the latest round of the series at Brands Hatch.

A win at Mallory Park takes Airwaves Yamaha rider Camier up to 11 wins from this year's 14 races, putting him just two behind Niall Mackenzie's record of 13 for victories in a single season, achieved back in 1997.

With four 'doubles' under his belt too, Camier is well positioned to become the first rider in BSB history to score a 'triple' at Brands Hatch following the decision to host three races for the first time at this meeting.

Already 75.5 points ahead in the rider standings, Camier is looking forward to the prospect of an additional race, claiming it will push him physically.

"It's going to be interesting to see how the weekend goes. A third race will be physically harder for all the riders out there. But I'm looking forward to it. I'm feeling really comfortable on the Airwaves Yamaha and I'm fitter than ever. I think the race on the Saturday will produce closer racing on the Sunday.

“Teams will have an extra evening to work on their bikes with race data. The season so far has been incredible for us. We just need to keep the momentum going for the rest of the season."

Good Luck Leon! However, you have to look at the fact that all the big guns from last year went to WSBK. Otherwise, Camier would have been competing against Haslam, Byrne, Rea, Sykes and Curtchlow and i personally dont think he'd have had it this easy if they'd all been there. Full credit to him though, you have to be the best rider on the day in this competition, and he has been consistenly throughout the season
