MV Agusta’s Leon Camier brought home his biggest points haul of the WorldSBK season so far with fifth and sixth places at the Lausitzring.
After missing fourth by half a second on Saturday, Camier was straight back on the pace for race two and was involved in an early scrap with Tom Sykes and then settled down to a carbon copy of race one, scrapping with the Pata Yamaha of Alex Lowes.
Camier just had the edge over his fellow former BSB champion but a small error in the last sector allowed Lowes the space he needed to steal fifth place from the Andorran resident.
“I felt really good on the bike, we had consistent pace through the race but I made a mistake in the last sector. Alex Lowes and I had a really good fight in the last laps, he passed me, I managed to get him back. I thought I had it into the last sector but I made a mistake, ran in to hot struggling with the gearchange and he made a really good pass,” said Camier, speaking at the track.
“Earlier in the race, I thought I could pass Tom and spent many laps trying to work out how to do it but he is difficult to pass. When he had clear track, he had better rhythm than me. To be in the top six is always a really good achievement for us. The bike and team worked well and it’s all we can ask for.”
