It was not a particularly happy weekend for Leon Camier either. In the first race the English rider came back from the thirteenth spot on the starting grid to seventh place, crossing the finish line in eighth after a slight error in the very last turn. Race 2, held in torrential rains, kept the riders busy just trying to stay in the saddle, let alone expressing their full potential. Leon, with a fourth place finish in his grasp, could do nothing when his Aprilia RSV4 lost grip in a puddle in a turn on the 12th lap. The red flag came out one lap later to suspend the race.
