Karl Harris is continuing to sweep all before him as the second day of British Superbike action drew to a close at Brands Hatch.

Although drizzle with 15 minutes remaining ensured track activity was minimal in the closing stages, the Hydrex Honda rider was still able to top his fourth free practice session from five with a 46.435secs lap - the quickest of the weekend so far.

He had to fight off the attentions of Leon Camier, though, whose rapid improvements on the new Airwaves Yamaha R1 saw him top the timesheets briefly, only for Harris to edge him shortly before the rain came down.

Splitting his time between Supersport and Superbike action, Steve Plater was back on form to claim the third quickest time, while Harris' Hydrex team-mate Stuart Easton moved up to fourth positon.

Making it five Hondas in the top six, Glen Richards and Gary Mason followed on their respective HM Plant and Quay Garage machines, while Sylvain Guintoli returned to the circuit this afternoon to set the seventh best lap.

Just behind, Rob Mac Yamaha's Chris Walker continued his top ten presence in eighth, while MSS Colchester Kawasaki will be pleased to see both Simon Andrews and Julien Da Costa inside the top ten.

A sixth free practice session resumes tomorrow before the qualifying shootout gets underway.
