    [SIZE=-1]LEON CAMIER TO RIDE THE MV AGUSTA F4 AT LAGUNA SECA

    Varese, 9 July 2014 - The MV Agusta Reparto Corse team has officially announced that British rider Leon Camier will replace the injured Claudio Corti in the ninth round of the World Superbike Championship being held this weekend at the Mazda Raceway in Laguna Seca.

    Because of his serious fall on Saturday during SP1 in Portimão, in fact, Claudio Corti will be out of action for the US-held round of the series.

    Leon Camier, born in 1986, has won various British championships - 125 cc in 2001, Supersport in 2005 and Superbike in 2009 - and will race as a Wild Card, contributing to further development of the F4 RR.[/SIZE]

    Got home about an hour ago. Tired and sunburnt but had a great time. WSBK is thrilling to watch in person and up close.

    Nice weather. More people than last September but not a big crowd as MOTO GP has had, not even close.

    No traffic, way less venders/manufactures displays

    ^^^ What he said. Saturday crowd was much larger than Saturday last fall (which had one WSBK race). Sunday was maybe 1/2 the size of a MotoGP Sunday crowd. Less vendors and hospitality. Upside was you could see much more of the track without vendors lining the fence between turns 2, 3 and the entrance to 4. Same for Turn 5 without all the big hospitality tents there. Weather was perfect. Access to the WSBK teams and fan press conferences were a nice touch. Crowd should have been bigger.

    Bummer for all the AMA races because no broadcast meant no jumbotron or monitor viewing anywhere. The AMA announcers could only discuss what they could see from their position. Very frustrating from a fan point of view. The big screens and monitors showed the World Cup final instead of racing. :huh
