Camier looking forward to Donington return

The Aprilia rider scored a podium finish on home soil at Silverstone in 2010, while Donington Park was the scene of his first WSBK event in 2009.
Leon Camier has expressed his delight at the return of Donington Park to the World Superbike Championship calendar for 2011.

Camier made his WSBK debut at Donington Park as a wild-card for the Airwaves Yamaha team in 2009, the 24-year-old raising his stock on the international stage with a fine run to sixth position.

Going on to record a popular podium finish at Silverstone during his first full season in 2010 for Aprilia, Camier is excited to see Donington Park back on the schedules for 2011 as an additional British event.

“I'm really looking forward to racing at Donington Park again; it's such a legendary track.

“We had a good win there in 2009 on the way to taking the British Superbike Championship title, and I've always enjoyed riding there. But the biggest thing for me is being able to go out there and race in front of the British fans twice in a season.

“The support I had at Silverstone this year was unbelievable. Looking around and seeing all of the Camier T-shirts, the cheers from the crowd and the reception we had when we stood on the podium, they are all things I will never forget, so to be able to experience that twice will be fantastic.”

Camier was also a race winner at Donington Park on the way to his record-breaking 2009 BSB triumph.

Great news Donington is back. It's not a perfect venue but does have its own atmosphere much better than silverstones wide empty spaces. There are too few national sporting events in the north so its about time things were spread about a bit. Anyway won't you Brands goers be a bit sick of superbikes next year with 3 rounds of BSB! Don't think there is a free weekend in the schedule for WSBK too.
