Camier excited by WSBK debut

Leon Camier is refusing to make predictions about where he expects to finish on his World Superbike Championship debut at Donington Park as he prepares for his wild-card appearance.

Airwaves Yamaha rider Camier will line up alongside the world's best for the sole British round of the series at Donington Park, where he will attempt to replicate some of his dominant form in the British Superbike Championship.

Returning to the scene of one of his eight BSB victories this season, although Camier is anticipated to fare well against the likes of Ben Spies, Noriyuki Haga and his former BSB rivals, he is keeping his expectations under wraps for the moment.

“I am going to treat it as another weekend,” he told Radio. “I don't know what to expect, so I won't put any pressure on myself by saying I will win or get a podium. We will keep it cool and see what we can do.

“I would love to get a good result, but there are a lot of great riders in there and it is going to be really hard to do well.”

One thing I'm hoping DOESN'T happen is that if Camier/Ellison are in front of Sykes/Spies, Yamaha (WSBK) doesn't tell them (Yamaha BSB) to let their riders through. If the BSB boys are faster, (and I think Camier will be, but I doubt Ellison) they should be allowed to do as they please. Might be interesting if Haga and Fabrizio are out front and Spies isn't, though. Hopefully team politics won't spoil the races.

No idea on the track layout El Bigonio, but some of Camiers fans are gettiing carried away! His starts have been poor in BSB this season - unless he can get good starts he has no chance of reaching the podium in a WSB race. i'm more interested in how Camier and Ellison compare with Sykes as I think Spies will be long gone. Last year as a wildcard with his confidence high Sykes almost beat Bayliss, but now I wonder how his confidence level is after half a season in Spies shadow? Camier has sky high confidence and I hope he does well, but fans who are touting a win have unrealistic expectations.
