A determined ride from Red Bull Honda World Superbike Team’s Leon Camier saw the Briton claim ninth place in Race 2 at Magny-Cours, while Jake Gagne finished just outside the point-paying positions in P16.
Starting Race 2 from thirteenth on the grid, Camier bolted out of the blocks and made up two positions to move into eleventh place on the opening lap. From there, Camier’s strong pace saw him work his way through the field to ninth place by the halfway point of the race, a position he held until the chequered flag was waved.
After a good race yesterday, today proved to be more challenging for Gagne, who made up positions early in the race but struggled for grip to finish the race in sixteenth place.
With just two rounds of the 2018 season remaining, Camier moves up one place in the championship standings to thirteenth overall on 102 points, while Gagne remains in seventeenth position with 51 points.
Argentina’s new Circuito San Juan Villicum will host the next round of FIM Superbike World Championship, the action taking place from the 12th to the 14th of October.
