BSB Championship standings - Mallory Park

Despite the unusual circumstances surrounding the seventh round of the British Superbike Championship at Mallory Park, it's almost a case of 'as you were' in the overall standings, with barely any change to proceedings.

Up at the front, a win and a second place apiece for Leon Camier and James Ellison means the gap between them is almost identical, even if the half points awarded in the shortened second race means Ellison has in fact nibbled the gap down by 2.5 points.

More importantly for them, the margin to those behind got significantly larger, with third, fourth and fifth in the standings failing to score: Stuart Easton suffered a double DNF, an injured Glen Richards did not race and Josh Brookes was eliminated after his first race mistake.

In fact, beyond Camier and Ellison, only one other rider inside the top ten posted a double finish inside the points, that being Kawasaki's Julien Da Costa, who is also the only top rider to make a move, rising from 12th to tenth.

Elsewhere, four more riders post their first points of the season – Steve Brogan, Tommy Hill, Richard Cooper and Kenny Gilbertson.

Yes WEll done to him,. he rode brilliantly. Its great what can be acheived when you are confident on the bike and feel secure that bits are not going to come loose on the bike. Oh all those breakdowns last year. I hope this same thing doesnt happen this year and that Mr Cooper can get full race distance.
