Leon Camier resumed his position at the head of the timesheets during second free practice at Silverstone, the championship leader getting the better of James Ellison this time.

Having been out paced by his team-mate in FP1, Camier stamped his authority over Ellison after 15 minutes before reducing his lap times over the session to complete the day with a best of 1min 25.781secs.

Although Ellison was within a tenth of Camier until the closing stages, his Airwaves Yamaha counterpart's late effort was enough to put half a second between them.
