Leon Camier in Aprilia, it's Official , sort of

There’s no official press release yet, but who needs it if Aprilia’s General Director Leo Mercanti personally says that Leon Camier is going to ride a factory Aprilia in world superbikes next season it’s got to be true, right?“In my opinion he’s a good choice” said Mercanti who was at the Bangkok airport “he performed well in the races he did with us”.

The deal was already in the air and was to be confirmed after the RSV4 testing at the Misano race track last week that was cut short due to bad weather.
Reigning Britsh Superbike champ Leon Camier substituted injured Shinya Nakano in the final two rounds of the season and finshed 6th and 7th at Portimao, while his debut on the factory Aprilia at Magny Cours saw him retire from both races with mechanical problems.

Camier will partner Max Biaggi in the team.
