The much anticipated British Superbike title shootout officially got underway over the weekend, with the six 'title fighters' going head-to-head for the first time at Croft.

It was an exciting weekend as the form book was turned on its head, Michael Laverty emerging as Tommy Hill's early challenger, HM Plant Honda struggling at the lower end of the top ten and Michael Rutter committing a rare mistake.

Naturally, there was plenty of action beyond the top six as the North Yorkshire circuit threw up plenty of thrills and spills, all of which has been caught on camera for your viewing pleasure.
