Superbikes rider Leon Camier hoping to return to racing action in Turkey this weekend
Leon Camier could return to FIM Superbike World Championship action in Turkey this weekend less than a fortnight after being in a high-speed crash.
The Ashford rider was airlifted from the Nurburgring on September 1 when his Suzuki skidded on an oil patch.
But the 27-year-old has travelled to Istanbul and hopes to come through free practice tomorrow (Friday).
He said: “I’m still a bit beaten-up from the accident and although my neck is feeling a lot better, it’s not perfect. My arm and hand are giving me a bit of trouble because I don’t really have full feeling yet.
“I might have a bit of nerve damage and it still hurts a bit.”
Sunday’s two 18-lap races are at 9am at 12.30pm (UK time).
