Camier eyeing qualifying improvements

Leon Camier will focus on getting a good starting position in an effort to maximise his race day potential.
Leon Camier has reiterated his insistence that a strong qualifying performance stands between him and a good World Superbike Championship result having failed to make the most of his pace at Misano.

Qualifying has been a bugbear for Camier this season, not least at Miller Motorsports Park and Misano where his competitive lap times were negated by him starting a lowly 20th and 14th place respectively.

Indeed, while the FIXI Crescent Suzuki rider is satisfied with his race pace, he admits he needs to perform better in Superpole in order to make the most of his position come Sunday.

Nonetheless, the Briton is optimistic heading to Motorland Aragon having tested extensively at the circuit alongside a handful of his rivals last week.

“We definitely left Aragon last week with a lot of info and data and we'll start the race weekend trying some ideas based on what we found. I don't think we're far from where we want to be at all, but the competition is so tough these days and the smallest of differences can be crucial.

“Firstly we have to qualify well and if we can do that, I feel that we can run with the leaders. Aragon is a tough circuit, but enjoyable to ride as long as you have a good bike set-up.

“So far, our FIXI Crescent Suzuki GSX-R's base setting has been pretty good, so we'll start working from that position, hopefully be more competitive in Superpole and get a good grid position.”

Camier, who finished on the podium at Motorland Aragon with Aprilia last season, is currently 13th in the overall standings.
