While much of the World Superbike attention has been trained on those at the top of the standings, the tussle for the remaining positions inside the top ten continues to brew.

Just 42 points covers Jonathan Rea in fourth position down to Sylvain Guintoli in 11th, with the likes of Leon Camier caught in ninth, just 38 points adrift himself.

Notching up a solid double finish at Misano with a run to sixth and 11th from 14th on the grid, Camier was pleased with his performance on what he described as a 'tough weekend'.

"I'm happy with the first race as it's been a tough weekend with everything seeming to go wrong. To get up to sixth from 14th round here after the issues we've had is pretty good and my lap times were also good.

"I did what I could in the second race but a problem with the clutch meant I just had to finish and settle with the points."
