Haslam wins as Rutter crashes out of series lead.

Leon Haslam took a well deserved win at the tenth round of the Bennetts British Superbike championship with victory in race two at Cadwell Park.

His closest rival once again was his Airwaves Ducati team-mate Gregorio Lavilla, who came home in second place to move into the championship lead. Keeping his championship hopes alive by finishing third was HM Plant's Ryuichi Kiyonari.

However there was bad luck for Michael Rutter who crashed out of fourth place on lap eleven whilst chasing Virgin Mobile's Tommy Hill. He is now two-points behind new championship leader Lavilla while Kiyo has been relegated to third. Rutter was unhurt and will be hoping to turn things around at Oulton Park in two weeks time.

Another Honda rider who was having a bad day at the office was Johnny Rea who parted company with his Red Bull Honda at Charlies on the first lap, so that is two DNFs for the young Irish rider.

James Buckingham, leading privateer, had a huge excursion across the grass on lap two, which put him from eighth place down to seventeenth. He managed to claw his way back up to a creditable eleventh by the time the chequered flag had came out to follow up his top ten finish earlier in the day.

Whilst Tommy Hill was having another superb race, coming home in fourth place, his team-mate Sean Emmett wasn't having any luck at all. Emmett entered the pits on lap ten with a technical concern.

The Rizla Suzuki riders had a better race two with both finishing in the top ten. James Haydon was sixth with John Reynolds eighth.
