WorldSBK – FP3, SP2, Race1
After a 6-lap Tissot-Superpole2 session, Leon Camier set his fastest lap in 1’34.628, getting the 6th position in Race1 starting grid. When the lights goes out on the “Marco Simoncelli”, Team MV Agusta  Reparto Corse’s rider Leon Camier started from the second row and start fighting into the top 10 area, successfully passing his rivals Eugine Laverty for the 7th position. The 30-year-old Ashford Kent (UK) rider managed to bring the MV Agusta F4 RC machine until the 6th position, but a crash, caused by the loss of grip at the front wheel, forced him to step back till the 11th final position. Leon will return on track tomorrow for Race2, looking for some more precious points for the championship standing, which at the moment sees him stable in 8th place.

WorldSSP – FP3, SP1, SP2
Coming from a very positive Friday’s qualifying result, sawing him finish in 3rd place, today Patrick Jacobsen failed to get the expected results in the Tissot-Superpole2 heat, ending up with a 1’39,535 lap time which means the 8th position in the starting grid. At work on some setup problems on his MV Agusta F3 675 machine, Alessandro Zaccone got the 16th time in the starting grid (2nd in the ESS class) and tomorrow the Italian rider will kick off the race from the 6th row.

Leon Camier #2 WorldSBK - The race was going pretty good, I just had some issued at the start of the race, as I got caught up in other riders fighting in the first corners. All in all I had a very good rhythm and the lap time was very good as well. I am just sorry the front tyre was loosing performance and I made a little mistake in turn 7 costing me several positions.

Jacobsen #99 WorldSSP - It was a quite difficult day in qualifying, we struggled more then we expected and I also had some little technical issues during the session as well. Anyway, I am still positive and I am confident we will be fast again in tomorrow’s race. Alessandro Zaccone #61 ESS – Even if we still have a lot of work ahead, I am happy to say today we made a step forward with the bike’s setting, which is really good to me. We will work hard on the data we got today in order to be ready for the race tomorrow. I really want to do a good race for my Italian supporters, both for me and MV Agusta.
