Jonathan Rea from the Hannspree Ten Kate Honda team went all out for wins at his home race meeting and recorded two second place finishes which improved his points score in the championship and made his overall third place a little more secure.

Starting from second place in each 18-lap race at this long 5.902km circuit, Rea led for the majority of each race, his only company the eventual winner of each leg, Cal Crutchlow.

At the top of the championship Max Biaggi now leads race one podium finisher Leon Haslam by 373 points to 313, with Rea on 243, 39 points ahead of Carlos Checa with three rounds and six races remaining.

Hannspree Ten Kate Honda rider Max Neukirchner went 11th in race one, his best result since the Assen race weekend in April, but a technical problem saw him drop out of race two. Having qualified 18th Max and his team found an improvement for raceday and he was riding well inside the points in race two before he was forced out.

ECHO CRS Honda rider Broc Parkes had a very difficult raceday after making it into Superpole and starting 19th on the grid. A collision with another rider saw him fall on the first lap of race one, and then another fall put him out on lap eight of race two. He stays 20th overall, two places behind Neukirchner.

The HM Pant Honda duo of Ryuichi Kiyonari and Josh Brookes had a tough time in their WSBK wildcard weekend, with Brookes 16th in race one and 12th in race two, Kiyonari 21st in the opener and 16th in race two. They had qualified 17th and 22nd respectively.
