Byrne seals 2008 BSB title.

Shane Byrne has won the 2008 Bennetts British Superbike Championship after his closest title contenders, Leon Haslam and Tom Sykes, eliminated each other from the running at Silverstone.

Byrne came home in a quiet in third, doing more than enough to secure the championship for both himself and the Airwaves Ducati team.

Haslam had been leading early on but was taken out by Sykes on lap two when the Suzuki rider made a failed attempt to pass at Brooklands. Although both rejoined, their fight back wasn't enough to deny Byrne.

Camier won his third race of the season, from Cal Crutchlow and Byrne.
