The World Superbike Championship made a welcome return to the African continent, South Africa and Kyalami over the weekend, the event being warmly received by the teams, riders and fans alike.

With its warm climate, dusty back drop and distinctive twists and turns, Kyalami was an outstanding setting for our photographers to be out there to witness the action throughout the weekend.

From Noriyuki Haga's triumphant double - including his unusual celebration with a 'random' fan -, Michel Fabrizio's last ditch efforts to deny his team-mate and Eugene Laverty's dominant Supersport victory, our snappers captured every moment in typically excellent quality.
