Corser cleans up in race two.

Troy Corser on the Alstare Corona Suzuki did the double at the third round of the Corona Extra World Superbikes at Valencia.

He pulled a 5.361 second lead over Chris Vermeulen on the Winston Ten Kate Honda who managed two second places.

Taking the third and final place on the podium was Chris Walker with the PSG-1 Kawasaki. Chris had been keen to get on the podium after a superb fourth place finish in race one. He got a rousing round of applause from British fans during the post race press conference and was thrilled to be back on the podium.

The Xerox Ducati had another difficult race day. Due to his crash in the morning warm up session Regis Laconi was advised to sit out of race two. He went for an MRI scan during race one and although it proved negative the local doctors advised him to rest up. His team mate James Toseland had even more bad luck when Gary McCoy on the Foggy Petronas crashed and punted both Toseland and Silva into the gravel. Althought James didn't crash the detour through the gravel messed up his tyres and he came in for a fresh set and went back out on track finishing in ninteenth place.

Ben Bostrom on the Renegade Koji Honda had a superb race working his way from sixteenth on the grid to sixth. The Renegade team and Bostrom have been going from strength to strength and are sure to be challenging for the podium soon.

Max Neukirchner on the Klaffi Honda who had a huge high side in race one was able to race in race two and came home in twelfth place. A very gritty ride for the youngster.
