Camier on second row despite crash

Leon Camier claims seventh on the grid at Brno, despite crashing during the opening phase of Superpole.
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.”

You're the embarassment John, When you can race a bike at 200mph and be 5th in a world championship and know just a "tiny" bit about racing, you can make another (probably uninformed again) comment.

He was on the back foot again playing catch up during practice after yet more electrical failures. If you are in and out of the pits with your bike breaking down you must lose set up time and get stressed about it, so it would not help on your qualifier.
