Top 10 for Leon Camier in Losail Race 1, Ryuichi Kiyonari Also Scores

Losail Circuit, Qatar, October  25, 2019

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.
