Britain’s Leon Camier narrowly missed out on an automatic Superpole two place at the Thailand World Superbike round after a strong first day of practice saw him lead the opening session.
Camier and his MV Agusta topped free practice one while the track was green and slippery while this afternoon as the team opted to not to put too much pressure on the installed engine, some setting changes were made which saw the former BSB champion slip down the order.
“The first session was obviously really positive. The chassis was working very good from the start and we only made one small change. The track condition were really slippery and in a couple of corners we can’t take the normal line,” said Camier.
“Then this afternoon the track conditions started to come good. We had to wait for most of the session to save the engine and then the last tenminutes we tried to push with the new tyre and a new setting. Unfortunately the setting we choose was not so good so tomorrow we will go back to where we were.”
