The Red Bull Honda World Superbike Team secured another double point scoring result in Race 2 at Misano today, as Leon Camier took tenth place with Jake Gagne back in fourteenth position in what was another hot and challenging contest
For Race 2, Camier started from the second row of the grid in P6 and after a frantic start found himself in tenth place at the end of the first lap. In a carbon copy to yesterday’s race, Camier was able to improve his pace in the middle stage of the race, and although he closed the gap to the riders ahead of him, he couldn’t improve his tenth place position as he crossed the finish line.
Back on row 7, Gagne also had a steady start, however the American was able to make progress through the field on his CBR1000RR and he came home in fourteenth place to add to his points tally for the season. After a tough qualifying result, the rookie rider turned his weekend around with point-scoring results in both races.
Camier’s championship points tally is now 88 and he sits eleventh in the standings, while Gagne is seventeenth overall with 41 points.
The WorldSBK season now enters its Summer break, with the Red Bull Honda World Superbike Team next being in competitive action at the Portuguese round at Portimão from September 14-16.
