The World Championship heads to Europe for the first time in 2018 as Aragón hosts the third round of the season.

After showing glimpses of brilliance at the first two rounds, the Red Bull Honda World Superbike Team are planning to put on a thrilling performance in front of their European fans.

Motorland Aragón is a technical 5.078km circuit that not only features a wide variety of corners, a long straight and hard braking zones, but is also subjected to highly changeable weather conditions which add to the challenge for riders and teams alike.

Coming off the back off the Thailand round where he secured a top three qualifying position and narrowly missed out on scoring a debut WorldSBK podium with his new team in Race 1, Leon Camier heads to Aragón confident that the CBR1000RR Fireblade SP2 will help him score a good result at a circuit that hasn’t been kind to the British rider in recent years.

Speaking ahead of the weekend, Camier said: “Aragon is kind of a home race for me given that I live in Andorra and I’m happy to be racing again in Europe. After the last round in Thailand we had a positive test at Assen as we continue to try and refine our package even more and step by step we’re making progress. Although Aragon is a circuit I like, I haven’t had the best results there over the past few years so I’m hoping to be more competitive this weekend with the Fireblade.”
