The Red Bull Honda World Superbike Team scored a double points finish in Race 1 of the Riviera Di Rimini WorldSBK round, as Leon Camier claimed ninth place and Jake Gagne finished in fourteenth position in hot and humid conditions at Misano.
Starting the race on the fourth row of the grid in P10, Camier had a steady start to the race before finding a stronger pace in the second half of the twenty-one lap contest. Camier’s metronomic pace helped him close the gap to the riders in front of him to under a second, however he crossed the finish line in ninth place, a result that means he will line up on the second row of the grid in P6 for Race 2 tomorrow.
For Gagne it was a combative race in the sultry conditions, the rookie setting off from P19 on the grid but in his customary style, he was able to make up numerous places to secure another points-paying position in P14.
The seven points scored by Camier moves him up to eleventh in the overall standings on 82 points, while Gagne remains seventeenth in the standings on 39 points.
The team and riders will now regroup ahead of Race 2 tomorrow at 13:00 local time (GMT +2) with the next session being the Warm Up session at 09:35 tomorrow.
