Just as James Toseland had predicted, Britain's World Superbike contingent would give their fans plenty to cheer about come race day at Silverstone following two home-grown podium lock-outs.

As was the case at Assen, the Union Jack would fly aloft the podium in both races, while an all-British top five in second encounter would add to the partisan joy.

A successful return to the calendar for Silverstone, the revised layout received a resounding thumbs up from the riders, while around 65,000 people would pass through the gates over the course of the weekend.

"What a weekend for the Brits", said Richard Phillips, Managing Director of Silverstone Circuits Limited. "I am delighted with the way that race day has gone. We have had a great crowd here and they have been treated to some fantastic racing topped off by two all British podiums.

"Importantly, we've had another fantastic reaction to the new circuit layout. The World Superbike riders have raved about the new track, echoing the sentiments of the MotoGP riders and Formula 1 drivers who have raced here in recent weeks. Both the old and new sections of track are providing plenty of overtaking opportunities."
