Camier retains Aspar seat for Silverstone
19 August 2014 – Leon Camier will continue to substitute for 2006 MotoGP World Champion Nicky Hayden at next weekend's British Grand Prix.
Hayden has struggled with a wrist injury for much of the season and underwent surgery following July's German Grand Prix.
Hayden had hoped to return in time for the race at Silverstone, but will instead attempt a comeback in the San Marino Grand Prix at Misano as he continues his recovery.
Camier has replaced Hayden at Aspar for the past two race weekends and notched up his first point by finishing in 15th place at Brno.
"We have confirmed that I'll be riding at Silverstone for the Drive M7 Aspar Team, which is great news and a dream come true for me to ride in my home Grand Prix with such a great team," he said.
"I know the circuit well and I really like it, so hopefully we can take another big step forward there."
Confirmation of Camier's appearance means that there will be five home riders on the grid for the British Grand Prix.
