LIKABLE Brit’ Leon Camier has made a shock move from behind the bubble to on the pitwall, as the Kent racer hangs up his helmet and swaps it for a place as the HRC WorldSBK team manager.

Camier will be replacing Jaume Colom who has left the team, and officially starts as of today, taking the helm at the Jerez test in the coming days.

Speaking of the news, Camier said:

“I’ve been a Honda rider for several seasons during my career and I’m now very happy and proud to be back with the company for what is a major change in my professional and personal life…

“I thank Honda for the trust they have put in me - the WorldSBK project is very important and the new CBR1000RR-R Fireblade looks absolutely great. I’m prepared to work hard to achieve our goals; I always did so as a rider and I will continue in the same way as Team Manager.

“Having raced in SBK for many years, I know the championship and its challenges very well, although the current period further exacerbates these issues.

“But in working alongside two very strong riders like Alvaro and Leon, and such a professional group of people as Team HRC and the HRC engineers, I am confident we’ll be able to reach our full potential and fight for top results.

“We now have two days of testing at Jerez, it will be my first opportunity to work with the team and I really look forward to starting this new and exciting adventure.”
