Leon Camier is beginning to emulate former team-mate Shane Byrne's dominant run towards the British Superbike Championship title after cruising to his fifth and sixth win in just eight races.

Although not quite as prolific as Byrne, who had six wins and two second place finishes at this stage in the season last year, Camier is nonetheless proving similarly difficult to beat after smashing the lap record at Thruxton in free practice, qualifying on pole position and going on to win both races relatively easy.

His second double victory of the season too, leading a 1-2 for the Airwaves Yamaha team on each occasion -, although Camier wasn't so pleased with elements of his race one victory, he was much happier with his start and performance in the second.

"To get another double win, and to see Airwaves Yamaha achieve one-two's in both races feels fantastic. Race one was tough. As usual I didn't get a great start and the times weren't as we'd expected.

"We made a few changes to the bike in between and race two was a lot more enjoyable. I had my best ever start in race two! I really want to thank everyone at GSE Racing and Airwaves Yamaha for all their hard work. We riders get all the congratulations, but it's thanks to them."

Camier now holds a 38 point lead over team-mate James Ellison in the overall standings.
