Leon Camier confident ahead of fourth round of World Superbike Championships in Monza
Leon Camier heads to Monza in a
positive frame of mind for this weekend’s fourth round of the World
The Crescent FIXI Suzuki rider, from
Ashford, is confident that his knowledge of the legendary Italian
circuit will enable him to push his GSX-R1000 on toward a decent
"Monza is going to be a tough one for
sure," said Camier, who stands 17th in the championship standings
after the opening three rounds.
"The track is all about speed but you
also have to understand the corners as well. It’s a place where
slipstreaming is important and it is possible to be fourth going
into Ascari and still win the race.
"For that you need to be in front
going into the Parabolica because the finish line is much nearer to
the last corner than it used to be.
"Last year I was faster than my
team-mate in the second race but a crash ruined everything.
"I am looking forward to three days of
dry weather so we can get all our work done at the beginning. If we
do that, I feel positive we can come away with good results."
Camier and his Crescent FIXI Suzuki
team-mate John Hopkins will take to the track for the first
practice session tomorrow (Friday) morning as they begin their
preparations for Sunday’s two races.
