Fourth row for frustrated Camier

A crash, a deleted lap time and traffic conspire to leave Camier facing an uphill battle for race day at Silverstone.
Leon Camier will start a frustrated 16th on the grid for his home World Superbike event at Silverstone after the combination of traffic and a deleted lap left him without a representative time.

Despite a bruising fall during Q2 earlier in the day, Camier had still looked on course for a spot on the front two rows of the grid having impressed in free practice.

However, the Aprilia Alitalia rider could only manage a best of 2mins 10.663secs after his best lap was taken away when he was judged to have cut out the chicane.

With traffic then preventing him from getting a clear run on the lengthy Silverstone circuit, Camier will be forced to start from the fourth row of the grid.

"The deleted time was only the last problem since I was never able to close out a clean lap due to the traffic on the track,” he said. “It's a shame when you think about what we demonstrated during all of the sessions. Honestly I didn't expect to start on the fourth row.

“Anyway, I like Silverstone, we've done a good job, so I'm looking ahead and thinking about the two races tomorrow. It will be hard work!"
