BSB Championship points: Donington Park

Sylvain Guintoli's devastating leg break means Leon Camier comes away from the third round of the ViSK.com British Superbike Championship in a commanding position following his fourth race win.

Although his advantage could have been larger had he not suffered technical issues during the second outing, Camier already has a one race advantage of 28 points over new second place man James Ellison.

Camier's Airwaves Yamaha team-mate was the biggest winner from Donington Park following a maiden win and a second place, launching him up from fifth in the standings to second.

A double podium for Stuart Easton also sees him make a similar improvement from sixth to third, ahead of the hobbled Guintoli, while Glen Richards drops from third to fifth after missing the podium.

Elsewhere, Chris Walker and Ian Lowry made good gains too, while Gary Mason stays strong in eighth overall, not to mention his already substantial 38 point lead over Martin Jessopp in the Mirror.co.uk Cup standings.
