World Supersport:

The French invasion of the Silverstone WSb round has continued with Sebastien Charpentier taking the win from Kevin Curtain. Sadly the promising wildcard entries of Cal Crutchlow and Craig Jones both failed to finish, with a crash and retirement respectively, but Tom Tunstall did manage to make the flag in 14th position.

Behind Charpentier and Curtain were several hard fought battles, including Fabien Foret dicing with team-mate Michel Fabrizio until the later retired.

James Toseland took an emotional win in the second race at Silverstone after a titanic battle with Australian championship leader Troy Corser.

Toseland had to battle hard to improve on his third from race one, but was able to overcome the consistency of Corser to take an important win in front of his home fans.

Noriyuki Haga took third to make up for his retirement from the first race, followed by Chris Vermeulen, Pierfrancesco Chili, and home fan favourite Chris Walker in sixth.

Race one:

Frenchman Regis Laconi has taken victory in the first race at Silverstone after an epic battle with Australian Troy Corser.

It was Noriyuki Haga who took the lead from the start, powering into the lead, but losing out to Troy Corser by the end of the lap. Meanwhile Regis Laconi and James Toseland began working their way through the field, including Chris Walker, who held third on lap one. Fallers on The initial lap were Gimbert, Alfonsi, Nieto and Clementi.

Chris Walker fought hard, but conitinued to drop back, once the Xerox Ducatis took his third, and lost out to Chris Vermeulen and Frankie Chili to finish sixth. Meanwhile at the front Laconi and Corser began a race long battle for the lead, with James Toseland able to watch but not close enough to compete.

Haga was a factor in fourth place until the closing stages when his lap times dropped, and he eventually came to a halt with mechanical problems.

Even coming out of the final corner, the result wasn't decided, as Troy Corser made one last-ditch attamept to take the win but it wasn't to be.

Meanwhile poleman Yukio Kagayama had to settle for 11th place, having crashed out early in the race, but keeping the Suzuki going and remounting in 16th.
