The WorldSBK season finale will be held in Qatar this weekend.
The 2019 WorldSBK Championship will be having its grand finale this weekend in Qatar. The event will be taking place at the renowned Losail International Circuit under the floodlights. Moriwaki Althea Honda Team‘s Leon Camier is all geared up to get back on his bike to end his run on high notes. Joining him is teammate Ryuichi Kiyonari is also set to race in Qatar as it is his favourite track and he has good memories of it.
Leon Camier (Moriwaki Althea Honda Team)- What to Expect?
“Qatar is a pretty crazy event. Obviously with the heat that could climb above 40 degrees Celsius, as it has in the past. It can be really very hot, which will make things interesting for sure. I don’t mind the track itself and I enjoy racing at night actually. The layout should be a hard one for us again. But I think we can figure something out with the bike again. We’ve got some ideas already that we want to try there in Free Practice So, I’m looking forward to getting start and will do my best,” says Camier as quoted from Honda Racing Corporation.
Ryuichi Kiyonari (Moriwaki Althea Honda Team)- What to Expect?
“I’m very happy to race in Qatar because I like the Losail track very much. Even though it can take a little some for the surface to shed the sand and for the grip to improve. Racing under the lights is unique. It is quite different from what we’re normally used to, and something you have to adapt to. Anyway, it didn’t turn out to be a problem when we raced here in WorldSBK ten years ago. We got positive results and again in 2012 when we secured the Asia Road Race title with a podium and a win. So, I’m confident we can do a good job this weekend.”
