-- WSBK Private Test – Phillip Island February 14, 15, 2013 Two Day wrap
-- Leon Camier fastest after a bruising two day test
Briton Leon Camier has completed the two-day private world Superbike test at Phillip Island as the fastest man on track, but the outing ended on a dramatic note when he totalled his factory-backed Suzuki late this afternoon.
Camier crashed at over 200km/h leading onto Gardner Straight, with his bike then spearing into the outfield, over a barrier and taking out a couple of small trees. Camier was bruised and battered, but otherwise okay.
“It became very windy this afternoon, and I lost the front on the last turn when a gust of wind hit the bike,” said Camier. “It obliterated the bike, which is not that hard to believe as the crash happened at over 200km/h. I’m pretty beaten up, and I’m going to be pretty sore tomorrow, but luckily I didn’t break anything. I felt pretty comfortable on the bike today and even managed to do a race distance okay.”
Earlier in the day, Camier had set a best lap of 1m31.2s to complete the two-day session on top of the timesheets, followed by Sylvain Guintoli (Aprilia, 1:31.4), Marco Melandri (BMW, 1:31.6), day one pacesetter Eugene Laverty (1:31.7), Michel Fabrizio (Aprilia, 1:31.7) and a trio on 1:31.9: Davide Giugliano (Aprilia), Jonathan Rea (Honda) and Leon Haslam (Honda).
Meanwhile, the bruising day had started well before Camier’s big off, thanks to Ducati’s Ayrton Badovini. The Italian came unstuck at turn eight, with his Panigale 1199R bursting into flames and causing the session to be red flagged. The marshals were on the scene quickly and put out the blaze, and Badovini was taken to a Melbourne hospital after suffering a bruised liver.
The crash was an acute blow for the factory Ducati team, with the outfit’s No. 1 rider Carlos Checa already absent while he tries to shake off a stomach ailment. That left Badovini to shoulder the responsibility of giving as much feedback as possible to the team’s engineers -- and everything was going to plan until his incident. His bike, like Camier’s, has now been written off.
Rea also crashed and hurt his shoulder on day two, while those to bite the dust on day one included Kawasaki pair Tom Sykes and Loris Baz, as well as Suzuki’s Jules Cluzel.
Sykes, the championship favourite, fractured the radius of his left hand, while Cluzel has had surgery in Melbourne to repair a gash in his arm. Baz also sat out today while his mechanics rebuilt his bike, but the trio is all expected to return to action at the final official pre-season WSBK test back at Phillip Island on February 18-19.
The private test at Phillip Island saw all the riders circulate on standard-spec Pirelli tyres, but on February 18-19 the company will be unveiling a new batch of tyres, including harder compounds as riders continue to come to grips with the resurfaced 4.445km grand prix circuit.

Ayrton Badovini (before going to hospital) - Team Ducati Alstare
“I’m reasonably happy with what we’ve done so far and I’m getting to know the bike better each time out. I’ve never ridden a twin before and the bike’s characteristics are very different to what I’m used to. I’ve been concentrating on making small steps forward, instead of trying anything radical and I feel that we’ve made good progress. As this bike is new, we’ve been trying to find a good base setting - something that will give us a reference point - and good bike balance. Also, the team have been working a lot on the electronics and the power delivery. We have to improve quite a few things, but that is normal with a new bike - especially as we cannot use any data from before. I’m very happy with the team and already everybody is working well together. I am positive that once we get the bike dialled in, we can get good results.”
Leon Camier – Fixi Crescent Suzuki
“The new surface is OK, though it felt bad at first. Once some rubber was down, it improved. There are a lot less bumps and I am using the same racing line, but there are now a couple of places where we’ve got a few different options. I’m satisfied with what we’ve done over the two days though I could’ve done without the crashes - especially the one today. It became very windy this afternoon, and I lost the front on the last turn when a gust of wind hit the bike. The bike went on forever, over a barrier and took out a couple of small trees in the process. It obliterated the bike, which is not that hard to believe as the crash happened at over 200 kph. I’m pretty beaten up, and I’m going to be pretty sore tomorrow, but luckily I didn’t break anything. I felt pretty comfortable on the bike today and even managed to do a race distance OK.”
Sylvain Guintoli – Aprilia
“Generally I’m very happy with these two days. We’ve done a lot of work towards a race set-up and race pace and I’ve been able to get to know the bike a lot better and now feel much more at home with the bike. I managed to find a good rhythm and also tried a lot of different settings. Yesterday morning the track didn’t feel so good, but once some rubber went down, it improved quite a bit. Some bumps still remain, but generally it is much batter, though there a couple of places where I feel it is a bit worse. This bike is very different to what I rode last year - especially with regards to the engine, the chassis and the electronics. Also the 17 inch wheels make a big difference, but I’m really happy with them and the progress we’re making.”
Eugene Laverty - Aprilia
“It’s been a good couple of days, though not without some issues. Yesterday was good and my lap times were good, but today we suffered with front end problems and although we tried many different ideas we never really got rid of the problem. Today we were struggling to make the front tyre last more than six laps. But apart from that, everything else was OK. The 17 inch tyres seemed to suit the bike (well yesterday anyway) and and we just made steady progress. The track is generally better though there are some strange bumps at turn 2 - everywhere else is OK. It became quite windy this afternoon - in turns 2 and 3 and also the last turn and it would; been easy to crash, so I took it a bit steady there. I did nearly lose the front one time at the hairpin but managed to get back upright again by using my right knee.”
Chas Davies - BMW Motorrad GoldBet
We’ve improved quite a bit over the test and I’m certainly much comfortable with the bike compared to the last time out. Also we’ve been able to try quite a few different things (about 70% of what we wanted) and that made me happy. The track was better today than yesterday, though the wind was a problem in the afternoon and you had to be very careful in a couple of places. There a few bumps still around, including a strange big one at turn 3. I think the 17 inch wheels are a step in the right direction and my feeling about them is pretty good so far. I was pushing hard today, but I didn’t take any big risks as the season is only just starting and you have to think about the races ahead. I am happy to end the test having nearly a second quicker than yesterday and I’m now looking forward to my next time on the bike and improving some more.”
Marco Melandri – BMW Motorrad GoldBet
“I was actually expecting a bit more from the track. I remember that, in 1998, the resurfacing made the track much better. Now, in some places the bumps are better and in some places they are worse. The grip is OK, but we’re having a tough time because the tyres are only lasting five or six laps. We struggled a bit with the 17 inch tyres in November, but here we’ve definitely made a step forward with them. We’ve improved the bike’s corner speed entry and also the chattering. Last year the chattering was very bad here. We haven’t got rid of it 100%, but it’s pretty good now.”
Leon Haslam – Pata Honda
“We had some issues with the new electronics before this test, but over the two days we’ve improved them and now we’re probably at about 70%, so that’s pretty positive. We’re still trying things of course and we’ll continue that at then next test. I did some good lap times on hard tyres maybe because the track feels a lot smoother. The new surface means that we’ve had to use a different set-up than before . Yesterday morning and this morning was not so good, but yesterday afternoon and this afternoon was better, though when the wind came up this afternoon, it became difficult to control the bike in some corners. It was especially bad at turn 3 and the Hayshed as well as the last turn coming on to the front straight. I’m feeling happy with the bike’s chassis and looking forward to the next test and putting everything we’ve learnt here together.”

After clocking the ninth quickest time during the first day of private testing at Phillip Island in preparation for the opening round of the 2013 Superbike World Championship Ayrton Badovini set Phillip Island a-light today but not quite in the manner he had hoped.
The Italian Ducati Alstare rider came down heavily and is suffering a suspected three cracked ribs and mild concussion. His teammate Carlos Checa did not ride yesterday or today as he is suffering from a stomach complaint that saw him seek hospital treatment. Tom Sykes suffered a cracked radius and left hand in his crash yesterday and has not taken part in proceedings today, nor has Loris Baz.
We believe Jonathan Rea was quickest this morning.
--- Earlier..... - Laverty fastest as Sykes crashes hard
Aprilia factory rider Eugene Laverty set the fastest time on day one of the private world Superbike test at Phillip Island yesterday(Feb 14) ahead of the opening round of the championship from February 22-24.
While all times are unofficial, Laverty, now the star turn at Aprilia following the retirement of 2012 world champion Max Biaggi, set a best lap of 1m31.7s around the freshly resurfaced 4.445km circuit. He edged out British trio Leon Camier (Suzuki, 1:31.9), Jonathan Rea (Honda, 1:32.0) and Leon Haslam (Honda, 1:32.0), while it was a disastrous day for championship favourite Tom Sykes when he fell from his Kawasaki early on at the fast turn 11, sustaining a hairline fracture to his left wrist.
The 27-year-old was sent to a Melbourne hospital for a scan, and will now rest before returning to Philip Island on February 18 for the start of an official two-day test.
Meanwhile another WSBK star, Spain’s Carlos Checa, didn’t even manage to get out onto the circuit due to a stomach ailment, and he is currently undergoing tests for a possible intestinal blockage. Checa has won four of the last six WSBK races at Phillip Island.
With Checa absent, it was left to his factory Ducati team-mate Ayrton Badovini to continue development of the all-new Panigale 1199R race bike, and he was a respectable ninth fastest with a 1:32.8.
World No. 3 Marco Melandri (BMW, 1:32.2) was fifth fastest, ahead of new Aprilia signing Sylvain Guintoli (1:32.3) and Suzuki rookie Jules Cluzel (1:32.7), while Davide Giugliano (1:32.7) was the fastest non-factory rider on his Aprilia.
Track chief Fergus Cameron said the new surface had plenty of grip and he was intrigued watching the riders acclimatise to the new conditions.
“With the added grip, they are carrying so much speed into the corners and taking totally different lines -- in some cases even running over the apex kerbs into the turn,” Cameron said.
“It’s interesting to see where they are staying on, and conversely coming off. Notoriously turn eight was tricky, but now they have got so much grip there the riders are nearly taking a straight line through the corner
“And the riders are losing it in different places. Yesterday they came off going into turn two, losing the front end going into Southern Loop, and also the exit at turn 11. That’s where Sykes had a cropper.
“Once they get their tyre set up right, we’re going to see some really quick times around here.”
Cluzel and his team-mate Camier also had tumbles on day one, and Cluzel was left with a large and deep hole in his arm. He will be operated on in Melbourne today to close the wound. Camier was unhurt, save for bashing his elbow and wrist.
The action continues today, while Australian wildcards Jamie Stauffer (Honda) and Glenn Allerton (BMW) will also join the rest of the WSBK field in the official two-day test on February 18-19.

• Out of six races run in Phillip Island, Leon Camier managed to finish inside the top-10 only once, in race two, 2011, when he was able to overtake on the last lap both Haga and Fabrizio. He always finished his races here, missing the points only last year in race one (seventeenth), when he was pushed off-track by Giugliano as he was running eighth. In qualifying he managed a top-10 spot only last year, sixth;
• The last race of Alexander Lundh in this track came two years ago, in the Supersport championship: he was 20th in grid and 9th in the race;
• Carlos Checa is the most successful winner in Phillip Island, considering only the non-Aussie riders, with four wins in the last five races run here. The absolute record here belongs to Troy Corser (7), followed by Troy Bayliss (6) and Anthony Gobert (5). Checa is also the only rider, with the aforementioned three, to have won more than twice in Phillip Island. He started from the front row four times out of five (missing out only in 2009, seventh), and scored pole here in 2011;
• Jules Cluzel was third in grid and fourth in the race in last year’s Supersport race. He managed to finish fourth also in the 250 cc.race in 2009, behind Marco Simoncelli, Héctor Barbera and Raffaele de Rosa;
• Ivan Clementi ran a total of ten Superbike races in Phillip Island, in a period spanning from 2002 to 2006: his best result was a ninth in 2004, race two, his only top-10 placement in this track;
• Chaz Davies last year was forced to miss the Phillip Island round after he injured his left wrist in qualifying. He raced here in Supersport in 2010 and 2011: he qualified inside the top-10, but wasn’t lucky in the races, finishing twelfth in 2010, while in 2011 he was fighting for the win until three laps to the end, when he punctured;
• The last race of Federico Sandi in Phillip Island dates back 2008, when he was 15th in grid an retired in the 250 cc. championship. Out of four total races run in the 125 and 250 series, Federico never managed to score points here, retiring three times and finishing 20th in the 2007 250cc race;
• Max Neukirchner climbed on the podium twice out of twelve races contested in Phillip Island: the first one was a third in 2005, race two, behind the two works Suzukis of Troy Corser and Yukio Kagayama, and the second was a second place, beaten by Noriyuki Haga by only 0.032 seconds in race one, 2009. In that race Max was starting back in 14th: he was able to climb up in fifth on the opening lap and even led at some point, but a little mistake on the last lap allowed Haga to take the lead. Max always finished his Phillip Island races, finishing outside the top-10 only in the 2006 races (18th and 13th) and 2010 (16th and 12th). His best qualifying effort came in his debut year in Superbike, 2005, when he started from the front row with the third time. After that he missed the top-10 in grid three times out of five;
• Vittorio Iannuzzo never scored points in six races run here, retiring four times and finishing the race only in 2010, when he was 16th and 17th. In 2008 he was forced to withdraw after an accident at the start of race one: he struck Fabrizio, who was stationary in grid when the lights came out. Vittorio went off-track and was run over by his Kawasaki, breaking his arm;
• Marco Melandri always finished his Phillip Island Races between the second and sixth spot. Two podiums for him: third in race two, 2011 (his maiden Superbike podium) after a fierce fight with Biaggi and second last year in race one (behind Biaggi), at the time the best result for a BMW bike in the World Championship;
• Davide Giugliano last year was ninth and thirteenth, scoring in race one his first career top-10 finish;
• Sylvain Guintoli last year scored his only Phillip Island podium, a third in race one, passed by Melandri after seventeen laps. The Frenchman qualified here twice in fifth and once in third, but he was often struck by bad luck in the races: he fell in race one, 2011 and had to withdraw from race two for pain in his right hand and left ankle, and fell also last year in race two, when he took to the grass on the second corner after nine laps;
• The best result for Eugene Laverty in this track came in his first race here: race one, 2011, when he was fourth after having led the first two laps. An off-track excursion in race two put him in fifteenth. Last year he retired in race one for physical exhaustion: he was recovering from two falls in practice and another one during the race for a false neutral at the hairpin. In race two he was able to recover, finishing eighth;
• Jonathan Rea finished all his eight Phillip Island races, seven times among the first nine and ending up outside the top-10 (twelfth) only in race one in 2011 due to pain in his wrist, following a fall in the tests ran here in February. Last year in race two he was about to claim his first podium here, but was passed by Sykes on the last lap, finishing fourth. He obtained a fourth here also in 2011 (race two, passing Haslam on the last lap) and in 2010 in race one (defending from Biaggi’s attacks). In race two Jonathan will celebrate his 100th Superbike race;
• Last year Tom Sykes was able to score pole, the first of nine season poles. A day without celebrations though, as the Superpole was aborted after the death of Oscar McIntyre, a Superstock 600 Australia rider. Tom counts here six top-10 placements out of eight races run: only one podium, third in race two last year, thanks to a last-lap pass on Jonathan Rea;
• This is the first race for Loris Baz in Phillip Island: last year he debuted in Superbike in Donington, replacing the unlucky Joan Lascorz;
• Three podiums out of fourteen races run for Michel Fabrizio in Phillip Island, obtained in 2008 in race one and in both 2010 races. He counts a total of nine top-10 placements in the races and two front-row starts (in 2008 and 2010). Last year he was victim of two bad starts: in race one he managed to climb up the field in sixth, while a fall sidelined him in race two;
• Ayrton Badovini had little luck in Phillip Island: only two points scored out of six races contested. In 2009 he had to withdraw after he fractured a foot on Saturday; in 2011 he was fourteenth in race one and his bike let him down in race two, while last year he retired in both races for problems with his BMW’s setup;
• Good performances for Leon Haslam in Phillip Island: he won the closest ever finish in the Championship history in 2010 race one (his maiden career win), when the final margin over Fabrizio was only 0.004 seconds and was able to climb three more times on the podium out of ten races run here. His only finish outside the top-10 came last year in race one (twelfth), when he raced with two screws in his right leg, injured only five days before. In 2010 he posted here his maiden -and to date only- career pole;
• Aprilia won twice in Phillip Island: the first one in 2000 with Troy Corser, and the second with Max Biaggi, last year in race one. Since their comeback in 2009, Max was the only Aprilia rider able to score podiums in this track, four times: he adds to the aforementioned win three second places;
• Two podiums for BMW in Phillip Island: the first with Leon Haslam in race one, 2011 (third) and last year with Marco Melandri in race one (second);
• Ducati dominates the charts in Phillip Island, having won in more than a half of the races run here: 22 wins out 43 races. It’s easier to count the races when they didn’t win: in the last five years they missed the top step of the podium only in 2009 in race two, in 2010 in race one and last year in race one;
• Four wins for Honda in Phillip Island, however in recent times they endured a slump in performances in Australia. Their last win came in 2007, race two (Toseland) and the last podium came in 2009 in race two (Leon Haslam). Since then they racked up three fourths out of six races run here as their best result. The last Honda pole in Phillip Island came in 2002 (Colin Edwards);
• Last year Kawasaki fought back from a series of below-par performances in Phillip Island: thanks to Tom Sykes they scored pole after a wait which lasted since 1995 (Anthony Gobert) and they climbed on the podium for the first time since 1997 (Simon Crafar). Kawasaki won five times here, the last one in 1996 with Anthony Gobert (a double);
• Time stopped in 2010 for Suzuki in Phillip Island: that year they were able to start from pole and win in race one and score a second in race two with Leon Haslam. Since then they never climbed on the podium here and their best qualifying spot was a sixth (Camier, 2010);
• In the last four years four different manufacturers started from pole in Phillip Island: Yamaha (2009), Suzuki (2010), Ducati (2011) e Kawasaki (2012);
LAST YEAR AT PHILLIP ISLAND
The first race in Australia didn’t start well for some riders: three of them, Chaz Davies, John Hopkins and Leandro Mercado, were forced to miss out the opening weekend due to injuries sustained during the winter or in the pre-season tests. Also Leon Haslam took part at the Phillip Island races with screws inserted in his right leg after breaking it only five days before.
The situation got worse on Saturday: in the Australian Superstock series, Oscar McIntyre lost his life, and after this tragedy all the track activities were halted, Superpole was cancelled and the grid was formed with the combined qualifying times.
Pole went to Tom Sykes, followed by Max Biaggi, Carlos Checa and Jakub Smrz: BMW riders suffered in this first qualifying round, with Fabrizio in tenth, and Haslam and Melandri further back in twelfth and thirteenth.
At the start of race one the first three spots remained unchanged, but soon afterwards Checa looked like the man to beat, passing Biaggi at the Honda turn during the opening lap and, after a brief fight with Max, catching Sykes and taking the lead on the third lap, in the same spot where ha had passed the Italian.
Biaggi at this stage tried not to lose contact with Carlos: passed Sykes on the fourth lap and set the fastest race time, going after the Spaniard. The two pulled away from the rest, but on the sixth lap Checa lost control of his Ducati, highsided on the last turn, leaving Biaggi alone in the lead.
Max advantage was already a couple of seconds, but the Aprilia rider kept on pushing, going on to a solitary win.
The fight for second was among Sykes, Guintoli and Melandri: Tom wasn’t able to keep the same pace of his rivals and slided back towards mid-race, while Guintoli managed to keep second until the eighteenth lap, when a firm move by Melandri on the first turn gave the BMW rider the second final spot.
Race two was settled on the first turn: Biaggi tried to overtake Sykes, but went wide and touched with his brake lever the Kawasaki, resulting in a trip on the grass for Max, which was dead last at the end of the lap.
Out in front, Sykes was able to keep the lead for a couple of laps, before being passed by Jonathan Rea, then the Kawasaki rider had to fight with Checa: the battle was settled on the fourth lap, when Carlos took second and, on the following lap, hit the front.
Once in clean air, the Ducati rider was unreachable and went on to a solitary win. Behind him, at first Rea managed to keep second, and, further back, the two Kawasakis of Sykes and Lascorz were third and fourth. Joan however went wide on the eleventh lap, just as Biaggi, with a great comeback, was reaching the leading riders.
Max went up to fifth on the thirteenth lap, then passed Melandri on the following one and finished his great ride passing Sykes on the eighteenth lap and Rea on the following one, securing a sensational second place.
The last step of the podium was decided on the last lap, when Sykes managed to have the better of Rea, coming out of the last corner.
