Camier turns it around with front row

Leon Camier banishes some qualifying demons to claim third on the grid at Motorland Aragon.
Having hampered his progress with crashes during Superpole at both Miller Motorsports Park and Misano, Leon Camier was delighted to not only complete a full qualifying session at Motorland Aragon without issue, but to score a maiden front row slot as well.

Though the Briton has shown strong race pace aboard the Aprilia RSV-4 this year, even finishing second at Miller Motorsports Park from 11th on the grid, he has struggled for confidence over a single lap.

Nonetheless, minor modifications to the bike between events has seemingly helped transform the machine, Camier occupying a spot inside the top five throughout the Aragon weekend leading up to Superpole.

Going even better in the definitive session, Camier was able to snare third position to claim his first front row start position since he joined the world series.

“It makes a change for us to be up on the front row to be honest,” he said. “I'm really happy with that, we've been working good all weekend.

“We made a couple of little changes since Misano and thought we were going to struggle a bit here but they have made the bike feel much better. Fingers crossed for tomorrow, it'll be interesting to start from the front!”
