LEON HASLAM took his ninth podium finish in this year's World Superbike series after winning Race Two at Kyalami on Sunday.
 
Haslam, who also finished a third third in Race One also extended his lead in the Championship to 15 points.
 
“I made a good start to the first race but just couldn’t get in front of James Toseland for third,” said Haslam. “When I finally did I was left with a pretty lonely third place. Both Fabrizio and Checa had got away while I was trying my best to get in front of Toseland. The little bit of front end suspension chatter that appeared on Saturday was still evident but I managed OK with it.”
 
“The second race was a slower pace than the first and I was comfortable sat in behind Jonathan Rea. I made a couple of passes but just couldn’t make anything stick so I decided to sit there. It was a tough, tough race from a concentration point of view and when the opportunity to get the lead came along I just grabbed it. To get the win is fantastic and a real bonus.”
