It was a rather hot Friday evening in Qatar, with temperatures hovering around 32 degree Celsius until well after sunset, during which Leon Camier and Ryuichi Kiyonari took on the first of the weekend’s three SBK races at the Losail Circuit.

In the Superpole session that preceded Race1, Leon qualified in thirteenth place with Kiyonari in eighteenth position.

A less than brilliant start when the lights went out at 8:00 pm saw Leon drop back to seventeenth position. Not losing heart, the Brit gradually improved both his pace and position, passing several riders while others made mistakes, and ultimately crossing the finish line in tenth place.

Ryuichi Kiyonari also progressed after having made a slow start and finished inside the point-zone in fourteenth position.

Tomorrow’s warm up will commence at 2.00 pm local time, followed by the Superpole Race at 4.00 pm and Race2 at 8.00 pm.

“We have made good progress with the chassis over the weekend and have also figured a few things out with the setup, so that’s where we are at the moment. Today’s result was not bad in the end but of course a few people dropped out so we were also a little bit lucky for sure. I didn’t make such a good start as I ran very wide early on, through turn one or one of the first corners, and lost a lot of places which was a pity as I had got off the line well. Anyway, I did as much as I could, managing to get into the mix and pass a few people.”

“The first part of the race was quite slow for me as I didn’t have perfect feeling with the front, and the track felt bit greasy maybe due to some moisture on the track. Rear grip was not bad though, so step by step I could improve and pass Delbianco and Schmitter. I tried to be consistent, but I realized that I was making little mistakes here and there, so tomorrow I’ll try to do better in that respect and also be faster in the first half of race”.
