Airwaves Yamaha's Leon Camier had completed his British Superbike race win hat-trick at Brands Hatch this weekend and has broken Niall Mackenzie's long-standing record of 13 wins in a season.

After a typical Camier start, which saw him slide from pole position to deep inside the top ten, he picked off rider after rider in a handful of laps before setting off after the PBM Kawasaki of Broc Parkes, who finished less than two seconds behind the Kent youngster.

The Aussie World Superbike regular was first off the line and into Paddock Hill Bend as Camier scythed his way backwards, and was followed by the fast-starting HM Plant Honda of Karl Muggeridge and Camier's team-mate James Ellison.


After two laps, as Camier battled to make his way through, Parkes was a second in front while Motorpoint Yamaha's Chris Walker and Hydrex Honda's Karl Harris fell victim to Camier's pace.

Parkes' lead was up to 1.8s by the end of lap three as Camier passed Tommy Hill, Michael Rutter and Stuart Easton, while team-mate James Ellison and Muggeridge fell victim to Camier - the former being passed around the outside at Paddock.

On lap five, Easton then slid up the inside of Ellison on the brakes into Paddock while Camier set off in pursuit of Parkes at the rate of 0.5s per lap. Easton got the better of Muggeridge two laps later to secure third.

It took Camier until lap 15 before he put a relatively easy pass on Parkes, who looked like he had shot his tyre, and Camier pulled away to take GSE Racing, and Colin Wright's 100th British Superbike win.
Ellison crossed the line in third after getting the better of Easton in the dying laps and Buildbase Kawasaki's John Laverty got his best finish of the season so far, coming home in fifth. Quay Garage Honda's Gary Mason took the Superbike Cup victory.
