WSBK Donington: Top five for Camier on home soil

Leon Camier claims his and Suzuki's best grid position of the season at Donington Park.
Leon Camier will start his home round of the World Superbike Championship at Donington Park from a season's best fifth position on the grid, but the man himself admits he was frustrated not to get the best from his bike.

Keen to impress on local ground, Camier has been competitive throughout the Donington Park weekend so far, form he would replicate in Superpole by cruising into SP3.

Going on to peak in fifth place, though the second row marks Camier and Suzuki's best qualifying performance of the season, the Briton was disappointed to be held back by a lack of front-end feeling.

“I'm a little bit frustrated because the normal strengths that we have, are holding me back a bit this weekend. That front-end feeling on turning in and then braking just isn't quite there and this is usually a strong point for us - so we need to work on that to get it right tomorrow.

“Overall everything feels ok and if we can get it that little bit better we should be a lot stronger for the races. It's going to be tough tomorrow, because so many guys are doing similar lap-times and although it will be good to start nearer the front, but as I said it will be difficult, so we'll just have to get involved with the front group and see what happens.”
