Camier followed in fifth after a somewhat unsatisfying day, well up on a battle for sixth that went the way of Sylvain Guintoli, the Frenchman snatching the place off John Hopkins on the final lap.
Hopkins had battled it out with former MotoGP rivals Biaggi and Melandri for several laps, but fell back towards the end to cross the line in seventh position behind Guintoli and just ahead of Leon Haslam.
Michel Fabrizio and Ayrton Badovini completed the top ten, ahead of Jakub Smrz, Maxime Berger, James Toseland – who lost time when he ran off the circuit on the opening lap – Mark Aitchison and Jon Kirkham.
Alex Lowes's fairly dismal British WSBK outing ended in the pit lane for his second retirement of the day, while Noriyuki Haga, Troy Corser
and Joan Lascorz were also forced to curtail their race's early.
