Leon Camier was left without a ride for 2014 World Superbike, though he substituted a few races for the injured Sylvain Barrier on the BMW Motorrad Italia team.

The 2009 British Superbike Champion also was on call for Nicky Hayden at Catalunya MotoGP, but the American was able to ride through his reoccurring wrist pain.

This week at Laguna Seca World Superbike, which runs in conjunction with AMA SuperBike, Camier will replace the injured Claudio Corti aboard the MV Agusta Reparto Corse F4RR.

Corti was injured during the first free practice at Portimao last week. During the wreck between corners 8 and 9 at the Portuguese circuit, Corti hit the pavement hard, sustaining a concussion and temporary amnesia.

Though he complained of wrist and leg pain, preliminary X-rays carried out at the circuit showed no broken bones.

As Corti recovers, Camier will pilot the F4RR for the first time in the World Superbike Championship during round nine at Laguna Seca Mazda Raceway.

Camier, born in 1986, has won various British championships – 125 cc in 2001, Supersport in 2005 and Superbike in 2009 – and will race as a Wild Card, contributing to further development of the F4 RR.
