Leon Camier is looking forward to racing at the new look Silverstone when the World Superbike Championship descends on the “Wing” for the first time next weekend.
The home of British motorsport has undergone a multi-million pound facelift in recent years with the new pit and paddock complex taking centre stage at the Northamptonshire circuit.
Camier completed an all-British podium in race two last year behind Cal Crutchlow and Jonathan Rea on his way to 12th in the championship, and the Ashford rider has pressed on this term. The Aprilia Alitalia man has scored three more podium finishes and lies sixth in the standings, just three points behind top Brit Leon Haslam.
Camier is aiming to leave Silverstone as the top home rider but he admits that the new look circuit has grabbed most of his attention in the build-up.
“I’m really looking forward to getting out there and seeing all the new additions. The Silverstone Wing pit and paddock complex looks awesome”, said Camier.
“Silverstone has always been one of my favourite circuits as it’s fast and flowing, and has plenty of overtaking opportunities, which no doubt I’ll need with my track record! I’ve had my fair share of races where I’ve had to fight my way through the field, probably one of the most memorable being at Silverstone last year. Going from 16th to stand on an all-British podium was something I’ll never forget – the crowd was amazing and the support I had was unreal. I’m hoping we’ll be able to put on another good show for the fans!”
