HM Plant Honda's Leon Haslam romped to the second race win at Silverstone's British Superbike round this afternoon, crossing the line four seconds of newly-crowned champion Shane Byrne and Rizla Suzuki's Tom Sykes, who came back from 17th on the grid to finish third.
Sykes was penalised 12 grid places for careless riding in the first race, which resulted in a crash taking out Sykes and Haslam. The Huddersfield youngster fought his way through the field and had a hard battle with Yamaha's Karl Harris for the final podium spot.
Haslam's team-mate Cal Crutchlow also had to fight his way back through the field after a mistake on lap three saw him drop all the way back to 15th. He managed to scrap his way back up to eighth before retiring from the race at Abbey corner with a technical fault - electrical, no doubt.
2008 champion Byrne rode a safe and faultless race to finish second behind Haslam while team-mate Leon Camier eventually got past Harris with two laps to go to take fourth. James Ellison was sixth after running with the leaders for the first few laps. He eventually crossed the line a second ahead of NW200 Ducati's Michael Rutter.
Rutter had a bad weekend through the somewhat Mickey Mouse Woodcote Chicance. In race one, Ellison and Michael Laverty went down, forcing Rutter to take evasive action. In race two, Laverty did the same again and The Blade was forced to come to an almost complete halt.
Jentin Yamaha's Simon Andrews finished off a solid weekend with eighth place while Gary Mason was once again top privateer in ninth.
