Leon Camier will start seventh on the grid for the eighth round of the 2011 World Superbike Championship at Brno, despite very nearly eliminating himself with a crash.

The Briton has endured mixed experiences during qualifying this season and has crashed his Aprilia during Superpole in two of the last three races at Miller Motorsports Park and Misano.

He made it three in four Superpoles at Brno when he fell during the early stages of SP1, but would make it back to the pit lane and out on track in time to secure a spot in SP2.

Camier would go on to reach SP3 as well, duly claiming seventh on the grid, but while he was relieved with the positive end result, he wasn't happy to fall again.

"Well, at least I can say I picked the right turn to fall on - joked Camier at the end of Superpole - I really thought I'd had it, and I'm not pleased about the mistake, but I was able to recover quite well.

"Starting from the second row won't compromise my hopes of doing well tomorrow and, considering how things were shaping up, I have to be happy."
