Leon Camier has won his 11th ViSK.com British Superbike race of the season after treacherous weather conditions at Mallory Park forced stewards to call a result at just over half distance.
The second race of the day to be curtailed early, although a shower shortly before the original start time necessitated a switch to wet weather tyres for all riders, worsening conditions and an increasing amount of standing water during the race would eventually prompt a red flag.
Although marshals attempted to clear some of the water, persistent rain and a 'noise curfew' prevented the race from being restarted, meaning half-points will be awarded in this instance.
It meant Camier was able to celebrate another victory after taking a decisive lead on lap nine, the championship leader being followed home by team-mate James Ellison to make it a second Airwaves Yamaha 1-2, albeit with the positions reversed.
Beyond Airwaves' achievement, which sees them move even closer towards the 2009 title, it was the performance of Richard Cooper that captured the majority of the attention, the Cup rider even leading for three laps after bullying his way to the front.
As was the case in race one, Chris Walker led into the opening bend, ahead of Tommy Hill and Cooper, the Co-Ordit Yamaha rider managing to stay upright through chicane after falling there on the opening lap during race one.
Despite tricky conditions, Cooper didn't take long to stamp his mark on proceedings, battling past Hill – riding the Suzuki Worx Crescent machine in the wet for the first time – and going off in pursuit of Walker.
Camier and Ellison followed Cooper through into third and fourth positions, but rather than being able to dispatch of the yellow Yamaha, Cooper was instead hassling Walker for the lead, which he duly achieved on lap six with a neat pass at the chicane.
Promptly attempting to establish a margin, unfortunately for Cooper, Camier followed him through into second position to maintain the pressure. After three momentous laps of having Cooper in the lead, Camier was eventually able to get through on lap nine.
