World Superbikes @ Silverstone - Photos!

Heavy rains made for an unpredictable first race at Silverstone but at the time of its completion no one knew that race two would also have to be cancelled because of the atrocious weather. The only eventual race winner was also the Superpole winner, Troy Bayliss (Ducati Xerox) who took a margin of victory over Noriyuki Haga (Yamaha Motor Italia) of two seconds. Third on the podium was early leader, Troy Corser (Yamaha Motor Italia), four seconds down after some great games of high risk between the leading trio in treacherous conditions.

James Toseland somehow managed to finish the race after high-siding his CBR1000RR and in the process ripping off water pipes and thus having no cooling for the engine. Only the rain stopped it melting and seizing. Boy was he desperate to keep the points
