Camier was passed fit to participate in this morning’s free practices, and performed well in the treacherous conditions and recorded an inspiring eighth quickest time around the Dutch circuit.
He was then given the go ahead to partake in this afternoon’s qualifying session and the rest of the weekend’s events. Camier then produced another brave ride to post the tenth fastest time in the first qualifying to see him safely into the provisional positions for tomorrow’s Superpole. He will undergo further treatment this evening to make sure he is in the best possible condition for tomorrow’s sessions and Sunday’s races.
“I’m happy that I can ride, but after about three of four laps my knee stiffens up and feels like it’s blocked and it becomes really painful in the wet. I didn’t have a particularly good feeling with the bike today, but maybe I was a bit stiff and not quite riding how I need to," said the Kent rider.
Camier hopes his leg improves even more by tomorrow for Superpole, but also wants to feel better so that he can complete both World Superbike races in the third round on Sunday.
“I think that in the dry the feeling in my knee will be a bit worse, but I’ve got to take it as it comes and hopefully it will loosen off a bit more. We’ve still got about a day-and-a-half before the race, so I’ve got time for it to improve. Hopefully when race-day comes I can do the distance.”
