Luckless Moriwaki Honda rider Leon Camier has been ruled out of WorldSBK action for an unspecified amount of time after a crash in Superpole at Imola today.
Camier was left with nowhere to go but into Sandro Cortese’s prone GRT Yamaha when it slid across the track in front of him. It is thought the German went down on oil left by Michael Rinaldi’s exploding Barni Ducati at the start of qualifying.
The incident has left Camier with ligament damage in his left shoulder but no broken bones but his recovery time and conditions still to be established in the coming days.
“It was another unlucky situation, similar to what happened in Thailand. Cortese highsided right in front of me and I hit the bike, having nowhere to go,” said Camier.
“We are not yet exactly sure of the damage I’ve done, I will need to have another scan, an MRI, to really understand what’s happened and what kind of recovery time we are looking at. I hope to be back as soon as possible of course.”
