Fixi Suzuki's Leon Camier fell foul to the problem of chatter during today's World Superbike Superpole and was unable to make the second session but is positive he has a good race pace for both outings at Brno.
The former British Superbike Champion was happy with his setup on race tyres but then, as soon as the soft qualifying rubber went it, chatter reared its ugly head and he couldn't find a cure so will start from the fourth row.
"Our Fixi Crescent Suzuki has definitely improved a bit since the last round in Aragon and I'm pretty happy with it and the set-up on race tyres. In Superpole 1 we started out on a race tyre and I found myself in a bit of a freight train at first, but the good news is that I was staying with the fast guys fairly easily and that felt pretty good," said Camier.
"When we put in the qualifying tyre to go faster, I felt it chatter almost right from the start of the lap. I pushed as hard as I could, but the chatter got worse and I nearly lost the front a couple of times. If I hadn't had the chatter, I'm sure I would've qualified for Superpole 2, and then who knows how far I could've gone."
